Yesterday I did a little riding with Josh, and felt pretty good. It’s been two weeks since I’ve ridden (letting the wrist heal) and it felt better then I thought it would. I felt a little rusty, but I knew that would come back quick.
It was great to get the win, especially since I came here just hoping to get some good points. I know I wasn’t up to my normal speed, since this was the first time I rode in a couple weeks (it felt longer). I had a great time racing with Josh, and all I can say is that kid is going to be really good! Now it’s time to get ready to go up to
1st Destry Abbott Monster/Kawasaki
2nd Josh Morros Monster/Kawasaki
3rd David Kamo Red Bull/KTM
4th Steve Hengeveld Honda
5th Matt Henderson
6th Ryan Kudla
7th Jake Argubright Kawasaki
8th Aaron Tuck ?
9th Jake Oswald ?
Now I have a 20 point lead over David Pearson (in 2nd), so I just need to make sure I stay consistently up front. I know it’s a long way from being over, but if I ride like I know I can, I feel pretty good about the outcome.
I need to give a huge thanks to Dr. Brian Popiel for helping me out with my wrist. I was a little worried about how it was going to be, but he helped me out with therapy. I still ended up using the CTI brace, which was really good. I know by this weekend’s race it should be close to 100%.
Here’s a video Beau did from the race. As you can see it wasn’t too technical. https://promoto.tv/2008-H&H-ROUND03.html
My next race is this weekend up in
