After a very long winter here on the east coast the first few rounds of our 2013 race season are in the books and we could not have asked for a better turn out or better weather for this early in the season. Round one of our season was held at Riverglade MX Park and got the 2013 MX season off with a bang. Friday morning I finished loading up my trailer and hit the road for the Glade, besides the awful head wind driving was great. On route we met up with most of the team and convoyed to the track. When we finally got to the track we set up the pit area and had a chance to see all the teams new bikes, banners, and colours put all together for the first time, it was very satisfying as a team owner to see it all come together. As all the racers rolled in it was great to see everyone back at the races for the start of another season. Practice got underway on time and the track was PRIME. The Riverglade crew laid down a good amount of water the night before and it made for some awesome ruts in the corners and great traction everywhere. There was battles in just about every class and the fans got a show being able to see the newly mounted Red Bull KTM Rider Tyler Medaglia tear up the track on his new bike. My Wide Open Racing team started the season off strong with everyone finishing among the top of their respected classes. I want to congratulate them as everyone rode awesome! All in all it was a great day of racing and all the riders left looking forward to the next Riverglade round on June 8th.
So what has been happening lately you ask? Normal stuff for the avid dirt biker I guess.
One of the more notable events was that I got stuck with my fifth wheel on my way back from riding in Michigan.
I thought finishing our family vacation with a race would be a good idea; the Anthill Classic was right on our way home. I had no idea what this race was like and assumed my big rig would fit the event. On a dry day, I think I would have made it to the parking area…
