Well, it seemed like all year I was so busy. Every couple of weeks I was off traveling somewhere! Hanging out with Mitch & Heidi Cooke, Jeremy& Tyler, Laura, Shawn, and Robbie was a great time in Florida. Playing a game of basketball under the lights was a blast. If my memory is right, I scored the most points putting my team on top!
Racing in Germany and the Pentiction Arenacross were both super fun and a new racing experience for me.
I'd have to say most of all I really enjoyed my time between SDL national and Walton. I got to ride lots and the weather was great. The beach was packed the whole time. Being at home and spending some time with my girlfriend Summer was a nice way to cap the summer off!
Ah, my Most Memorable Moment would probably be boarding the plane with Mason (Phillips) to go race the Canadian nationals. I had no real idea what was about to go down, but it turned out to be a rad 5 months. I can't wait to get back up there this year!
My Most Memorable Moment last season in Canada was, for sure, getting the win in Moncton. After everything that happened that day and getting my eye split open with the rock the first moto, it felt really good to still come out of it with a win.
My Most Memorable Moment from last year was getting my overall at Sand Del Lee. There’s a lot of people in my corner who have helped me out tons from my family, friends, trainer Brian Robitaille to Kevin Tyler at SDL. I had some ups and downs in 2011, but it was really nice to get the win at SDL to show that the work is starting to pay off.
The Most Memorable Moment from 2011 for me is obviously from Walton, but besides winning both motos, having a son, and winning the championship, I think the most memorable moment was going to staging not thinking one bit about the race but to talk to Jeremy. I remember it vividly going through the crowd under the canopy to peg number 1 getting off my bike giving Jer a hug, talking about what Heidi told me, the feeling of warming my chilled hands on my silencer, in between pauses in the conversation watching the drops of water fall off my clear mud visor extender and thinking how excited I was to meet Talon.
