MX national

Second week end on the road

After a visit to Manitou Springs (cute but touristy) we drove 2 hours for Lakewood Colorado home of the fifth round of Lucas 2010 MX national!
As we all know, act like you own the place and nobody will ask you anything….
Within minutes we had Lollypop parked between the 2 semis of our dear friends Procircuit and FMF in the Pro pit! This was awesome! We were within few feet from all our friends.
Talking about friends we were so happy to see Joel and Mary anne from Fmf (and from our home town NSB) and Philip Hewitt from Orlando (Wrenching for Shawn Hackley)
Big thanks as well to David Clabaugh for letting us park where we were and organizing a great MX National!
David has been our friend and partner (Denver Endurocross) for several years and I could not say enough good things about him.
Within minutes of our arrival, Alec was hired by ONE industries (thanks Marc and Russ) for a photo shoot!
If Dimitri succeeded (lol) we will see Alec in the 2010 catalog…pretty cool for AP
The Saturday race day went so fast…. I started hangin banners with my friend DC for couple hours then spent some time with Christophe and Arnaud (Did not see them since Jacksonville SX)
First moto was won by Christophe ahead of his teammate Jake Weimer!
Mitch was pretty pumped on first moto and the day went on.
Sadly for Christophe the starting gate had a malfunction and he had to race from dead last to 6th place.
Fortunately he still did manage to be on the podium and to keep the championship lead!
Christophe was not too happy about the situation but Carol managed to keep his smile with a good swiss fondue and some French dishes we all enjoyed late at night joined by our friends Jeff Emig and Lebig.
Night was short since Amateur Day Practice started at 6.30 am?????
Spend some time in morning fixing a flat on Luca ‘s bike and socializing with Uncle Bevo…
Had a great time at the race…. We will miss Thunder Valley MX Park


  1. cool to see you've been able to hang out with a bunch of your friends....

  2. Alec: Way cool about the photo shoot!! They are going to have quite a challenge picking photos of you for the catalog, as I am sure every shot is a keeper. Congrats. Miss you xox

  3. Thanks again Carole for the Fondue and the wine. It was awesome and we had a good time!

  4. It's official. Alec is a supermodel! Wait until he comes back a world traveling model. Carol and Eric, you may want to invest in a stick to keep the girls away. ;-)
