Today was a great track practice at #Mountain West Motocross Park in Mona, Utah. I made sure not just to ride around the track just to get seat time. I made an effort to actually train.
I know that riding my dirt bike is great training, but I’ve been told by everybody that it’s not the best way to become a better rider. Vincent from SMX Factory School made me practice, practice and practice on the turns. He also told me that I need to make the time to work on the skills it takes to be a better rider.
I don’t have money coming in like a lot of riders so I try to get to the track when I can. My grandpa drove up from Mesquite, Nevada last weekend; a four-hour one-way trip for him just to help me get to Mona for Saturday’s practice from 9:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. They close at 2. Yep, he then drove back home Saturday night.
Well this Saturday morning I made sure I was warmed up and the very first rider on the track. They had watered the crap out there and there was a lot of mud. I needed to practice on a muddy track; that’s for sure.
I’m not going to tell you it was a lot of clean fun; it wasn’t. The #891Suspension rebuild needed to be tested and it was. The new #Flexx Handle bars had to get used too; they did. Thankful that I was running my #Acerbis skid plate because it helped keep a lot of mud off of the engine. But the thing that kept me running in the mud was the great set of #Pivotrax Tires. They are simply amazing.
Going to get to the track tomorrow, Sunday morning again because it’s race time in one week at #Bunker Hill Motocross Track in Delta, Utah and because this will be my first race back since breaking my leg I want to be ready. Wish me luck!
Please take a look at my GoFundMe page and if you or somebody knows anybody that wants to help me and my grandpa would really appreciate it and we’ll make sure to thank you all of the time. Remember that every dollar goes to my bike’s maintenance and racing. Just to give you an idea of what practice costs; every day at the #Mountain West Motocross Park track is $30.00 just to practice. Please help if you can.
