Moto Cross Races

A couple of days ago, Jack got a wild hair with friend Nick to enter a moto cross race in Pasco. I really didn't think they were serious, but evidently they were. Nick's dad says that Nick can do a wheelie for a really long ways, so he thinks he can race. Jack's dad says Jack has really cool graphics on his bike, so he thinks he can race. As evidenced by the two bottom pictures of Jack at the starting line with all of the other racers and then Jack still at the starting line, it didn't go too well. Fortunately for him, he got a second race. The top picture is from that race. He actually did well in the 2nd one, but we're sort of hoping his racing days are over. I'm afraid he just whetted his appetite for more. We are happy, however, that both boys came out unhurt, which for the mayhem at the beginning of a race is quite amazing. Actually, it was a lot of fun to go to and impressive in its own right that those riders (the pros)have invested so much effort into becoming good at what they do. The best was the 3 to 7 year old class.

Hi Jeannie! I found your blog on Sharee"s blog and thought I'd check it out. How fun that the boys got to race on Saturday. Rick and a friend of his also raced. Rick took fourth in a class of six. We went and watched the evening races together and they were great until a guy ran into the wall, broke three boards and didn't get up for a long time.He got up on his own, but ended up in the hospital. Sometimes these guys hobbies scare me. Amy
