Since the test at Daytona I've just been hanging out at home in Arkansas. It was nice to get to enjoy the fall colors and do some great mountain bike riding in the Ozarks. While I was home I got a call from the guys at the Texas Tornado Boot Camp asking if I'd like to come down and be a guest instructor. I jumped at the chance and packed up my dirt bike gear!

So I drove down to Texas and spent four days at Colin Edwards playground! It was so much fun getting to ride with some old friends who are full time instructors at the camp, Merle Scherb and Shea Fouchek. Having Colin there was also amazing because of his wealth of knowledge and down to earth nature. I learned a lot while I was there and I hope that I can apply those things to my racing this next season. The TTBC is an awesome experience and I can't wait to go back down and do it again!

Now it's back home to start logging the training miles and getting ready for Daytona in the spring. I'm really looking forward to the upcoming season since we have a new sponsor joining the team,, and new team mates Jake Lewis and Benny Solis! It's going to be an awesome year and I can't wait until it starts. See you in March!!!
