Our first stop was the NZ supercross Open, held at Mount Maunganui. This event I quailfied 2nd fastest behind Brad Groombridge. After a hectic four motos of bar banging and crashing were complete. I grabbed 5th overall for the event. Despite a disapointing overall, I was happy because I gained alot of confidence in myself at this event.

Round 2 of NZ supercross champs was held at Taupo. This event started off great. I qualified 4th and was feeling good about myself and the bike. Moto1 going across the whoops I crashed into a rider that was down, then was ran into by Peter Proxy. My ankle got really badly twisted up. Too sore to race, so I sat the rest of the event out.

Next stop is always a Favourite. Round 1 of the Sth Island supercross champs held at Motueka the RAT TRACK. This track I have grown up racing and practicing on every year and it never gets boring!.

I qualified 4th. Then went 3rd, 2nd and 5th in the motos, This gave me 2nd overall.The Next day on the Same track, was Round 3 of the NZ supercross champs. I went 4th,3rd, 4th. This put me 2nd overall for the day. I was Stoked with my weekends racing. Staying up and consisted put me up on the podium where I belong.

Last stop was Mcknights property in Timaru. The track was new, So I was super excited. It was the Last Round of the Sth Island supercross champs. In moto1 I was not far off the leader Craig Smiths pace, I finished 2nd behind him. Moto2 I DNF'd as my subframe was just hanging on. Moto3 I finished 2nd again right behind Craig. I wrapped up the day with 4th overall.

The Next day was the Final Round of the NZ supercross champs. Moto 1 I finished 2nd again right behind Craig. I was pumped up from this, and ready to rock in moto2. But It all went sour!. A narly crash had me taken to hospital. I re injured the same ankle I injured at Taupo but this time it felt worse. The X-rayed showed no break!, So things wernt so bad!.

This being my first season in the MX Lites class. I had alot of fun racing great riders, and more fun beating them. There are alot of positives I can pull out of the season. Also Negatives we will improve on for next year. Now Bring on The Motocorss Nationals starting in Febuary!.

Cheers for all your guys support! keep it up.
