Friday was an early morning but a super easy drive to the airport and an even easier flight to Phoenix. We got picked up by Brent and his good friend Chris then headed to the hanger to check out his freshly painted and re-engined toy.
Bryce had a good time playing with his dog 'Hannibal' who tries to catch shadows. It was absolutely comical. After a good lunch, we headed out to the race course for B to register and get the bikes tuned then to Chilis for dinner with the crew and an early night.
Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day that began with a long ride on the CX bike from Phoenix to Bryce's MX race about 60mi out of town.
Other than the freaky hobo on an electric bike, the ride was quite pleasant with LOTS of cacti to look at :)
I arrived just in time to see B start his final special test of the day. He crashed really hard during the first couple miles and got pretty beat up so he wasn't having the best of days. However, I'm super proud of him for finishing up and getting through the first race of the season.
After getting all the jitters out, he finished with a solid score for the last section and got his confidence back for Sunday. After chillin' in the hot tub for a few, we met up with his parents and their good friends for dinner and had another relaxing evening.
