Lyon, France, Here we come!April 29, 2009
I am just getting all packed up ready for our first trip to europe today, we are flying to Lyon, France and racing an avalanche cup this weekend. I have heard that the track is pretty fun and the crowd is crazy so i think its going to be a cool event. I am really looking forward to the 2nd world cup, which is in 2 weekends time. Its a brand new track in Labresse, France. I'm hoping i can get my first world cup win of the season there but the competition is tough this year so we will have to wait and see.
I have had a pretty cool break since Sea Otter, i have just been staying at Seans house down in socal. I decided on friday to buy a ticket to Salt Lake city to watch the 2nd last round of the AMA supercross, the racing was pretty tight. My boy Chad Reed had some bad luck with Stewarts team mate trying to take him out and he unfortunatly didn't win but got 2nd. It's all going to come down to the finals in vegas this weekend to decide the championship. I did score a Reed signed jersey though so that made my trip even sicker.
I also had a photo shoot yesterday with Troy Lee, they have some of the coolest new gear coming out for next year, i wanted to keep it but they wouldn't let me just yet. It was a massive day of pushing up and redoing sections to get the shots but we got some pretty killer stuff. We had a pretty cool crew there and there was some funny stuff going down. Troy found this massive tree that had a split it in about 20 feet high, so he climbed up there with his bike and made it look like he was riding out of it. It was pretty funny, especially when he got ants all in his jersey and on his neck.
Well I'm going to go smash a cold Monster and load the car for the airport.
