On Saturday, my dad and I went out for an easy first lap pre-ride. Well, we didn't get very far, because my dad slipped and fell and ripped his knee back open (gross!). I was pretty freaked out about it. While my mom and dad went to the ER to get him sewn back up, I pre-rode with Mr. Kovi and Bryce, and then went back with them to the Cattani's house to play and have dinner. It would've been a really great day if my dad hadn't messed his knee up again.

The Juniors' race was equally as exciting for me, because I had my best finish so far this season. Also, Dustin got a new cast on his wrist, which let him race, and that was really cool.

My mom took a ton of really cool pictures for this race, but they wouldn't format right on the blog, so I had to leave them off. If you want to see some more, you can find them all on the mtbmike.com facebook page.
