Pictures taken by Sam.

This last weekend was another weekend that went by so fast it seems like a month ago already.  But on Saturday Maddie, Jessie, Jeremy and myself went to the Wrestling State Championships in Madison.  As always it was nice to see Wade and talk to him a little as he was real busy running the tournament.  But I do have to say it was cool to watch the kids wrestle and put it all out there trying to take the top step.  The real hard thing is trying to remember 31 years ago and myself on the top step  and being a Wrestling State Champ.  Wow am I old.  But in any case it was a cool night watching the wrestling again.  Thanks Wade.

Then on Sunday it was more bmx racing at the Waltworth bmx track.  I raced both the cruiser and 20 inch again and took a 2nd place in both classes.  Sometimes you win them and sometimes you tap the brakes.  I have to say the guys that I race are a blast and I enjoy it every weekend.  Well I hope to maybe move up 1 more spot one of these weekends.  Well see you at the track.  Later..

Race day at the barn

Pictures by Sam.

Another weekend of racing down at the barn.  On Saturday I took a 4th in the cruiser as I raced with some of the younger guys as the same in the 20 inch as I took a 4th in the expert class.  I was just happy to make both main events.  Then on Sunday it was the Race For Life Race.  I took a win in cruiser and a 2nd in 20 inch.  It was some great racing as always and I had a blast.  More racing this week Sunday so come on out and catch some of the action.  Later..

going no where fast

Picture taken by Sam.

Nothing new going on except that the bmx racing and gate practices are taking up the time with this weather. I have been going to the races and last weekend was a good weekend as I took a 2nd place in the cruiser race and then a win on the 20 inch bike.  I have felt better each week on the little bikes as always just when the indoor season ends and then the road and mtn bikes take over.  One of these years I am going to take the entire year and race the little bikes and see how that goes.  May have to do it soon as I am not getting any younger.  But today there is racing at http://www.walworthbmx.com/ if anyone is interested in coming out and watching any racing with the weather being so cold.  But any how here is where I will be this weekend.  See you there as I will be going in circles on some cool dirt.  Later..

Cyclocross World Championships

Well it has been a week since we went to the Cyclocross World Championships in Louisville Kentucky last weekend.  I do have to say it was the best racing that I have ever had the chance to watch.  The racers at all levels were just amazing and fast.  They had moved the races that were to be held on Sunday to Saturday because the river was still raising and it was to crest 4 to 8 more feet by Sunday.  Good thing that they moved the races as the pictures on line of the river on Sunday showed that the entire bottom part of the race course was under water Sunday.  Plus it was great to watch all the races in 1 day and not have to worry about parking for 2 days and getting home real late on Sunday.  But I have to say the racing was awesome and I am so glad that we went and who knows it maybe another 30 years before the Cyclocross World Championships come back close enough to go and watch.  Here are the pictures I got before my batteries died.  I had more but they were in the hotel.  My loss.  Later..
