I got off to a good start at the first US Outdoor National of the year.It was also my first race on a Yamaha and the bikes are working really well. It was a tough first Moto for me because of the heat, which at this time of the year Iím not fully accustomed too. I have not adjusted to that yet since coming in to the race and from a week of testing in snow flurries. I still rode a good pace throughout the 1st Moto to finish 18th. The second Moto, I got into a groove after the first couple laps and rode a smooth consistent race to finish 15th.I was on the rear tire of Jason Thomas for a long time during the moto and have all the bruises to prove it as his CRF 450 blasted me with rocks.

 

Overall, I finished 17th which I feel good about, but know I can improve on that going into Mt Morris. Also, I would really like to thank Bridgestone for the help. The track was slick and dry, but thanks to them I had good traction all weekend.

 

Talk to you later!
