Thursday evening Mark, Ethan and I headed to the Washington County fair for a motocross race. The weather started off extremely hot and cut our night short with a big thunderstorm!
Ethan ready to race!
This isn't good! Mark's bike was locked up and he had to have a friend pull start him before the race. It seems that Elijah watched Ethan wash his bike earlier that afternoon and he thought he would be nice and "wash" Mark and his Uncle Kurt's bikes. Well he ended up getting water in the mufflers locking them both up. Thankfully no damage was done to either one!
Ethan in line ready for his practice with all the other 50cc riders. They have two 50cc classes, one for 4-5 year olds and one for 7-8 year olds, at this track they all raced at the same time.
These young riders have a lot to watch out for during a race. There's jumps and ruts, other riders and often times the little ones will fall over and need help starting again, so they even have to watch out for parents on the track!
Ethan did great and never wrecked once!
Passing on the last half lap to win second place! Ethan was very disappointed the rain came cancelling the second moto, he would have loved to race again!
Mark also raced, this time in the Open B Class. This class is mainly teenagers that are very aggressive, with out a wife and kids at home to support. :) Next race I'm going to encourage him to go back to the +30 B Class, these guys don't have the " I'm invincible" attitudes of teenagers.
