Hey everyone thank you for visiting the site and following what I’m up to.
It’s been pretty crazy these last few weeks and it’s kept me from posting for awhile! I’ve been working full time at the Leamington District Memorial Hospital (LDMH), enjoying some musky fishing, and of course some riding too. Motocross has been very tough this season for me. It seems every time it started looking up things turn and go bad. I’ve won some races and I’ve had rougher moto’s then ever in my past. Intermediate and pro are a whole different step that take full commitment and a whole lot of funding. The commitment this season hasn’t been hard for me as this is my passion and I expected it to be tough. The funding on the other hand has been tougher then ever. At this level you ride 3-4 times a week, so you need to have two bikes, a practice bike and a race bike. The reason for this is a 250f only lasts 40-60 hours before it needs a top end rebuild and it’s to risky putting all the hours on the bike you intend on racing. Not only do you need two bikes, but you need parts for the bikes, to build a full race bike, you wear out gear like you couldn’t imagine, and the biggest expense is traveling all over the east coast. What I’m getting at is it’s expensive when it’s all out of your own pocket. Then in addition to that the mental game is unbelievably stressful.
In conclusion I’ve made the most depressing decision of my life and I will not be attending the east coast nationals for 2013. It’s been an overwhelming year for me and it’s all come to fast. At this point motocross has lost it’s fun and became dangerous as I wasn’t mentally prepared. Don’t misunderstand me I’m not quitting just taking a step back and slowing things down. My plans as of now, are to work hard at building relationships with sponsors, get back to having fun, spend some time teaching lessons, make some money, attend some local races, and stay safe.
I apologize to all the people who were looking forward to seeing me at nationals, and to the sponsors that this effects. I’m going to keep the site rolling and keep everyone updated as I have all year.

Here is a quick photo report.
Michael Tebruegge snaps some pretty awesome pics if you ask me!
Huge thanks to Fly Racing, Dragon, Forma, and Asselstine’s Country for keeping me looking fresh!
Went 1-1 in the A class
It was 102 degrees and the track couldn’t hold any moisture.
Like I said it was dry!
Maybe a little dusty too. Speaking of Dusty I’m so pumped to see him back from his injury and I’d just like to take a second and say “Good luck and let’s see a Canadian on the top step of the box at Gopher!”
Poster picture??? I bet Jeff from Gamma Sales likes this one!
Speed and Style?
Hmmm? Think they would notice if I borrowed the Cobra? Maybe I could pull a holeshot!
People say fishing is relaxing…I don’t think this fish understood that concept!
After 20 minutes of getting muscled around buy a fish. It’s relieving to hold it up for the camera.
Dry, Dusty, and Concrete. Braaaaap
It’s pretty awesome when you have a fan club! Thanks for the support!
I’m going to end it with this! Excited? Ya me too!
Good luck buddy!!!!
