Supercross in Australia and New Zealand: halfway around the world to have fun with the same old friends.
“Three weeks?” my neighbor asked. “You can get that much time off of work?” Yes, because this was for work. Barely. Yeah, I was covering and announcing the Monster Energy S-X Open in New Zealand and AUS-X Open in Australia, the biggest supercross races Down Under, but I also packed my wife and two kids. We took in beautiful scenery and fantastic cultures. Yet I had the most fun seeing the least. For instance, my daughter came down with a stomach virus, so we skipped a day of hiking and watched movies all day in a hotel room. It was a blast. We should have days like that at home more often.
