Oregon Trail!

That game on the Apple IIE computer from the late 80's early 90's was the business. Haha back to current timeframe this last weekend was my first race back since July. Thanks to some sketchy riding out in Fresno I took a few months off to get my knee in order so just trying to get fast again and get in some mains was the plan and things went fairly well. I made 4/4 mains and one podium nothing too impressive and I was in the presence of Caden who just wins his first national that he has ever been to haha. He has been riding PAL for a few months and his parents were down for Oregon so I rolled up there with them. He raced the pre race with 9 year olds and got 3rd which was cool and then when he got his own 8 year old class on Saturday he qualified in and was looking good and then come main time he just ran the show wire to wire taking his first win. It was pretty nuts I was hoping for top 4 just so he could get a tall trophy and sure enough he just boned out and won the whole show LOL. I was super stoked for him and he was pretty thrilled Im sure. Sunday he got back on the box again and backed up the win with a 2nd place finish so he left with a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd so he was definitely toward the front of the class. Congrats to him. I was chasing around Jonas all weekend and he is going way fast, I tried to crash him on Sunday but he was too quick and got away before the carnage in the turn. I had lane 1 and knew I wouldnt be quick enough to get over to my right and cut a good line into the turn, so I pretty much decided in the staging area that I was gonna go hard into the bottom of the turn and push up until I could turn out and see where it left me. Things were going really well for a brief second but right when I took a crank to leave the turn someone hit my front wheel just perfectly for us to flip over and crash as well. It was nothing major just scuffed up the elbow and a little tegaderm and coban should have me back to normal in a few days. Cadens hardware in the pic and the crash link is http://vimeo.com/64112008  @1:35 youll see me being a jerk in a turn. LOL
