Hey Guys, Well the journey has came to a close.
It’s been a long rode trying to make it to the London 2012 Olympic games. The last 2 months I’ve spent a lot of time in the UK for World Cups and getting ready for our World Championship. That being the end of our Olympic personal points for the 1st spot on the USA team. Going into worlds I was in 4th. (winner getting first selection). So my results there was going to change much. Starting out the day great, I wasn’t able to keep it going getting knocked out in my semi final and my day coming to an end.
Back home in America. 2nd choice for the Olympic team was a trials event held at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, CA. 2-5 in points were automaticly in the race and the other 4 were coaches selections. Luckily I got an automatic selection. This race was the 8 fastest USA riders. Winner gets to go to the Olympics and 2-8 get a “Good job, see ya next time” haha. It was a different format from normal. Every lap eliminates the back riders until there was 4 left for a main event. I rode well and made my way into the final 4. Nerves were really going now. I didn’t have the best start but got myself into 2nd in turn one. Coming out hard toward the next section I tried hitting the biggest jump too low. Coming up short and ending my day watching my last chance at Olympics ride away. Guess it’s time to set new goal for this year but I’lll be coming strong for 2016. 4 years will go by fast!
Back to the ABA series now. Small hill small jumps. Here I come….
