Las Vegas was a blast, we had so much fun. Starting with the Arenacross practice on Friday, some site seeing and gun shooting Friday night, SX on Saturday and the Arenacross qualifying and finals on Sunday. I had the best lap time in Friday morning practice session and 2nd best in the afternoon. It was looking good for Sunday.
In the qualifying race I rode 1st for most of the race but got caught through lappers and finished 2nd. Again I knew I had the speed to win. In the finals I was running in 3rd in the schoolboy class when I had a big get off over the finish line catapult jump and finished 5th, then was time for the Womens race where I had an OK start and was catching up to the leader when I accidentally stalled the bike in the whoops section. I fired it up real quick and pushed hard and was catching on second place rider again when I lost the front end in a corner and lost a lots of times and positions. I ended 5th in the womens also. Let me tell you I am really disappointed with my results in the finals as I could have win (or at least podiums) that race.
I don't want to make any excuses but I really feel the 3 hour jetlag and staying up too late at the supercross race got the best of me as I shouldn't have made those little mistake and I was falling asleep between the motos on Sunday. We have learn from our mistakes and hopefully we'll be back even stronger next year .
Untill then it's school all week, Gym and the final packing of the race rig for our first trip out at the races with the rig this year.
