Today I had full day of fun in the sun. First I walked Jessica to school the took Nate and Maddie to school as they have late start on Wednesday. Then it was off to the Chiropractor for a much needed lineament. When I walked home I got the itch to ride so that is what I did. I got my Haro Single Speed out and went riding. It was nice to ride outside even though it was an hour and a half of 1 armed riding. Do PT workout as I need to get 2 done a day. Then it was shower and run to Jessie's school to load and hide 900 plastic eggs in the park for the kids to find. It was a blast watching the kids run to get their bounty. Now I'm getting my time in the chair of pain before I cook some meat on the grill. I can't wait till tomorrow for more time on the bike and some PT. Later..

Here are some awesome pictures that Guy took last night. To bad it was the last night of gate practice as Nate was getting faster at each one. Looking forward to some road and track racing with some BMX and Mtn bike racing tossed in. Thanks for the great pictures Guy. Later..

Tonight was the last night of gate practice for the year at the barn. So sad as it is a blast to hit the gates. But there was 2 new guests tonight as Rob and Candy came to try it. Rob has done it before but it has been a few years. I hate to say it but Candy was doing better then Rob. There is always next year.

Nate in the lead of moto 2 of the USAC Jr. Development race. Nate tied for 1st but the tie breaker went to Allen so got 2nd today.
Practice picture I believe.
Nate pulling a 2nd place finish in cruiser. Nate also took a 3rd in the open after he was pushed up the burm. Then in the 20 inch he took another 2nd place. All great racing today and Nate is looking faster and better each race. Now it is time to get ready to race the big bikes. All the pictures are from Guy, thanks. Later.

Tonight Nate and I loaded his bikes in the car and pointed it to the barn for some bmx racing. It is the Redline cup weekend and that means that there is racing Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Tonight Nate raced the open and was put into the 17 and over and he won the open race. Then he took a 2nd in cruiser and then a 2nd in class. He was rubbing elbows from the start to finish with Allen all the way. Just came up short but he is pushing the best guys there and Nate's time will come and he will get the win. Tomorrow will be a big day of racing as Nate will be racing the 16 and under open, USAC Jr Development race, class and cruiser. Then the same on Sunday. He is going to be one tired boy. Tonight and tomorrow night he is staying with Fred and Tammy so he can rest as they just live a few miles from the track so that is nice, thanks guys. I will drive out and watch tomorrow again and then on Sunday to work and help at the track since I can't race. Later..

Today was another day of bmx racing at the barn. Nate raced in the open, class and cruiser again and after watching him go from open to right back in the gate in 5 motos to the cruiser and then a short break to back on the 20 inch makes me tired. But he does it all and does well so good for him. He hit it on all cylinders in the open main and took the 1st place today. He hit the gate perfect and went into the 1st corner and held off Justice for the first time and as many have said it would just be a matter of time for Nate and it came today. Great job is all I have to say. Then in cruiser Nate had to race Tyler and Alan and they are both one of the top racers in the country and Tyler is a World Champion so running right there with them is a great job. He was right there from start to finish and it won't be long before he takes a win there to. But had to settle for 3rd today. In 20 inch class Nate had to race the same guys and he was outside of 3 of 4 and he just got pinched and took a 4th place. In all a great day on the track. More neck week as there will be racing Friday, Saturday and Sunday for Nate. That should be fun and I wish I was racing so bad as watching was not that fun when I was so used to racing. Oh well that time will come again. Later..

Tomorrow it is back to racing the little bikes for Nate. Yes the bmx bikes as Nate has made the commitment to that and there is just 3 weeks left. He is also in the running for a track champion coat and number plate again. So bmx racing it will be tomorrow instead of the Kenosha races. It is to bad that we miss the Kenosha races as we always liked to do them in the past. But the bmx is the winter fun and Nate wants finish the season. So good luck to all those who racing the Kenosha races. Now back to the chair of pain. Later..

On another note if the rain holds out I'm going to try to get Nate to a group ride with the other Jr's tomorrow. So I got the fingers crossed that the rain gives them a chance to ride together. Then it will be recover and get his stuff packed and race the bmx races on Sunday. I Hope that Nate can handle it.
Plus on a sad note I read yesterday that Granny Gear has trashed the 24 hour races that it has taken under it's wings. I did 6 of the 24-9 races and always enjoyed the experience. Of course that was when Kevin was running the show so they were awesome events back then. I did not do it last year so I can't say how the event was. I can't remember any comments from the race last year from others either other then the Jr's giving a run at the top spot. But in all it sucks that the little toad Laird Knight has ruined a good thing. Hope that Kevin kicks the toad in the junk and takes back the 24-9 as that would be cool. Now it is time to make some homemade popcorn and watch movie. Later..

I have gotten out the last 2 days to walk over and pick up Jessica when she gets out from school. Her teacher asked me if I could come in once the shoulder gets the OK to sit in her class and help some of the kids that need a little help. I will give it a try and see if I can help. I think that I will be happier being at work but I will give it a try.
Then Len Stopped over and I got the last 4 boxes of Girl Scout cookies that I ordered. Oh yeah I paid for the team kits I ordered. Nothing like a few 100 bucks flying out the door. Oh yeah I got 2 TUFO Track tires to that I have to figure out how I am going to get on the stretching rims and then on the wheels for Nate. May be a teachable moment for Nate real soon. I may have to run them to Ben's to get done though because of the bum arm. But all paid up and now to get the Fly order in and then all done on bmx stuff to. Then all I have to do is see what Nate needs for his EXPO order and then get that in and be done for a while. Later..
