I had a blast riding a BMX Supercross track for the first time since the World Championships in New Zealand of 2013. After a while, it was kind of hard to get used to the hill in one practice session. Luckily, towards the end of the 40 minute practice I was figuring out the kink again, and felt comfortable. USA BMX didn't want the amateurs to hit the berm jump, so we had to go left out of the first turn.
I didn't lose a lap all day, and it felt great to execute in the main event and take home a win. This was my first Am SX race, but I plan on racing every Am Supercross Open next year.
Overall the weekend was a blast. I raced up on the Amateur track sat-sunday, and battled for the Gold Cup #1 plate. Unfortunately I lost the lead in the second turn Sunday, costing me the number #1 plate, but earning myself the Gold Cup #2 plate. I look forward to racing more AM SX races next year, and hope USA BMX can give us, amateurs, a title for the series!
