WOW, what a long, stressful, eventful, successful, and GREAT weekend for Grippen Park BMX's Gold Cup Northeast Regional Qualifier weekend. I have so much to post, but I'll try to keep it short. Here's the recap:

Saturday Double Point: Saturday was a really long day and it took a lot to be able to stay concentrated. I had 21 riders in the pro-am and rode super well through the motos and made it to semis. Wasn't easy being the smallest rider for that haha. For class, I picked up a 1st place with 11 total riders.
After racing we did a 2 hour skills clinic which went really well.

Today - Gold Cup Northeast Regional Qualifier: By the time we got done with the clinic, ate dinner, and got settled into the hotel last night , it was past 11:00 pm. With an early wake up this morning, I started off today a bit sluggish. But after some caffeine and sugar, I was able to make it to semis again for the pro-am and grab another win for class! Today was another super long day and I was already tired from yesterday, so by the time my main event rolled around, I was running on empty. Somehow, I managed to get the holeshot and hang onto it from there. I was super exhausted by the time I got to the last turn and was barely able to hang on for the win. TNT Bicycles New York also took an overall 2nd in the team challenge.
Just a few thank yous as well: thank you to my dad and my TNT Bicycles teammates for all the support, and thank you to TNT Bicycles owner Mark Zalewski for coming out to support the team today. And last but not least, a HUGE thank you to everyone who cheered me on this weekend. I had so many kids and adults coming up to talk with me and wish me luck, and it helped so much! And thank you to anyone who took the time to read this super long post, haha. And a big thank you to God for keeping me safe this weekend and helping me avoid a lot of almost crashes.
This weekend was both really physically and mentally demanding so I'm really happy that I was able to stay focused and get the job done. Really happy with my gate starts, first straights, jumping, and overall "flow". Hopefully this is just the beginning of a big year! Back at it again next weekend!
