Hello All!

I finished up my motocross season on Labor Day weekend at the Steel City National in Pennsylvania. I didn’t reach my goal of a top-ten AMA finish this summer but came really close with a 12-place finish in the second moto at Budds Creek.  It was one of the craziest races of my life!  I have never seen so much mud and water.  I literally saw Monster cans, water bottles and other stuff floating on the track while I was racing.  It was unbelievable!  If you haven’t seen the SPEED broadcast, you need to.

It’s hard to believe that summer is already over but I had a lot of fun racing moto and mountain bikes. I have my final MTB race this weekend and it’s a big one – The Fat Tire Festival’s Chequamegon 40.  Last year, it was my first-ever MTB race and I was not prepared.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into!  My friend John talked me into it and I’m glad he did because now I’m hooked.  This year, I’ve been racing, riding and training and feel like I’m capable of a strong finish.  I need to thank Mellow Johnny’s Bike Shop for their support this summer and Tyson at Penn Cycle for keeping my bike dialed in.  I also need to thank FOX Racing Shox for getting my bike set up with new suspension.  Check back next week for pictures and video of the race.  Mandi will be the official photographer because she broke her fibula a little over a month ago in a MTB race at Buck Hill.  She’s off her crutches and anxious to get back on her bike.  She was supposed to be racing the Short and Fat this weekend with my friend Rob.  Now Rob is racing the 16-mile race solo but I’m sure the Chief will find his way!

After this weekend, I’ll be switching gears to snocross. I’ll make sure to keep you updated on my racing plans.  Hopefully snow will be falling soon!  My Monster Energy/Castle Replica gear is now available in Castle dealers.  Make sure to get your gear soon because it’s selling fast!  Also, make sure to check out  It’s a cool new website where you can get the inside scoop on everything Arctic Cat.
