We made it through our first motorcross race Sunday at RaceDay Park Mx. I thought it would be easier since I've been practicing. Boy, was I wrong â€” in fact, I think I got a little slower. I've got to practice more so I can pick up the pace.
When I got at the starting gate, one of my coaches, Jerry Chamberlain Jr., was talking to me, telling me what to do. My heart was beating so fast it could have run the race. Jerry had me so pumped up I thought I was a professional rider.
