So I started a new video today about the last two races, the theme of which is, even after two years of racing I still basically know nothing and have a lot to learn.



What an incredible sport.... it really is. After two years of anything you would think that you would have a decent grasp but honestly the more I race, the more I understand how incredible other riders are.

anyways, here's a clip from the Dirt Diggers GP "Endurocross" section.... it was pretty easy. This was loop 2 for me and you can tell im already exhausted.

...and my suspension is still too soft.

I was already tired to the point that I couldnt stand....remember I was sick for almost a month before the start of that race and I hadn't done almost any cardio in a very long time....

I totally hear what you're saying and my form leaves much to be desired



Nice pics BTW!

not sure if you guys are familiar with the similar meme that's been going around online, but I mocked this up today.

GO!!!!!! AJ!!

I've been sick for almost two weeks now. Went for a WALK yesterday and wanted to go to bed afterwards. Doing anything strenuous in these two weeks were like walking up a mountain without oxygen, so I think you're doing mighty freaking fine there!


GO!!!!!!! AJ!!!

isnt it insane how you can be totally fine and two days later you can hardly throw back the covers? Im tellin' ya.... this last one was BAD for me. I had vertigo, disorientation..... it was so bad I actually went to the doctor and got bloodwork.
Anyways, that was all behind me till two days ago I wake up with a scratchy throat!

WTF!?

nearly got the holeshot today but another rider decided to turn in front of me at about 60 mph and i crashed pretty hard. Just got home - heading to urgent care now.
Was a perfect day for racing too.....

Sorry to hear that. I crashed twice - the first one bent my thumb back a little - no biggie. The second has me sitting in the ER with a pain filled foot. I do t think it's broken like you had but I need something done to it. Both crashes were my fault - just got crossed up in a rut the first time. The second time I think I was just tired - it was right after the 1-2 loop merge.
