The weekend came, I saw, and of course I conquered. I actually missed the time trials on Friday, but did NOT miss the actual Elite BMX races on Saturday. Once again, I was privileged enough to be able to attend the races and was treated as a VIP guest with the help of my SUPERB neighbors! Thank you to the King’s one again. Being in this prime location enabled me to rub elbows with the likes of Mike King, Eddy King, Bob Haro, and Todd Lyons to name a few. Great to see you guys again and it was a pleasure meeting new folks as well. This year, we were treated to some tacos, lobster, dessert, and of course BEER! hahaha. I wasn’t as drunk as I thought I would be since I was all over the place snapping pictures.
Team USA was killing it throughout the day for both the Men’s and Women’s Elite. Shout outs go to Day, Robinson, Fields, Herman, Sharrah, and Long. Thanks for repping USA so well. Can’t forget the ladies that represented Team USA Martin, Crain, Post, and Geving. Conner Fields took first in the Men’s Elite and broke his last record during time trials. This guy is my pick for GOLD in the London Olympics 2012. I cant wait. Herman took third and of course did an amazing job. Although Team USA did not take any podium spots in the Women’s Elite, I am still proud of them!!
With a couple months to prepare for London, I was also around to check out the Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony for the London Olympics 2012 replica track currently being built at the Olympic Training Center and almost compelte. Trust me when I say that this track is gnarly. Everything is bigger and badder! I can’t wait until it is done to see the riders practice on it. The mayor or Chula Vista was also in the house, well…. outside actually. hahaha.
I went back on Sunday to watch one of my riders during the So Cal Nationals. Shout out to Dawson Terry for making finals and taking home a trophy! Can’t wait for the new jersey. Factory Team Outsiders representing!!
Enjoy the pictures players.
