last Saturday, I went to Southwick, Massachusetts, for the motocross nationals event, where the professionals were racing. it was awesome! I got to meet several of them and got a bunch of autographs, and there were a ton of photo opportunities. there were some riders who I wanted to meet but wasn't able to, but I'm definitley going back to Southwick when they're racing there again next summer! Here are a couple of pictures I took that day, some of my favorites.
this is me and Ashley Fiolek, currently #1 in women's professional motocross. she's the one pro who I really wanted to meet. she's also hearing impaired, and at a young age was told there were a lot of things she wouldn't be able to do. look at her now!
this is me and Davi Millsaps, a veteran of the sport of motocross. he was the first pro I got an autograph from
this is Trey Canard and Justin Barcia (who is signing my shirt!) I didn't get to take a photo with them, but they both signed the shirt.
this is Aj, Catanzaro, who was making his second pro start at Southwick. He's my age, and he's actually friends with two people who I went to school with.
this is Nico Izzi, coming off the track after one of the races
This is Eli Tomac (243) and Dean Wilson (108) two young but already successful pros. I almost met Eli!
this is Blake Wharton (21). almost met him too! he's teammates with Eli Tomac
this is Sarah Whitmore, a veteran of wome's pro motocross
this is Tarah Gieger, another veteran of women's pro motocross
