It’s been a great year. I’ve been blessed to have been able to race the races I’ve raced and earn some decent results while working as much as I have been, even at the tracks and in between motos. Unfortunately, I had a tip over in the LCQ at Budd’s Creek that put an end to my season. I finished the races that day but an evaluation from my knee surgeon shows that it’s best I get some R&R. I’m super thankful for all of the people who have helped me grow as a racer and as a person. Racing motocross has shaped me into the person I am and taught me so many valuable life lessons. There’s no dollar value that can replace that. But where I used to put a race before my health, i’m putting my health before a race. I’m not racing this weekend at Iron Man, but when i race again, I’ll be healthy and strong ?? @cycledump

After my wrist injury during supercross, my pain never seemed to go away. Over time that pain has moved into my hand and has been very difficult to ride with close to zero grip strength. After last weekends race I just couldn’t handle the pain anymore so I’ve decided to get a jump start on the healing process and get surgery today. Already looking forward to getting on a bike and being 100%
