Thought it was time to congratulate and wish the Team SIMX and Team moto-x-foto Racing qualifiers good luck!
The long road to the Amateur National Motocross Championships usually starts the day after the current years racing ends. It is a lot of hard, grueling work training and many miles traveling through out the US, racing most every weekend.
This year, both website has a combined 4 riders heading to Hurricane Mills, TN next week.
We'll start with the smallest... Brett Gourley. Brett is making yet another trip to the famed Loretta's course. Brett is from Boonville and has been racing since about 2004. Last year he raced at Loretta's in the 50 7/8 year old class and finished 16th overall in the Nation! He was in the top 10 going into the all important third moto, but had problems in the last raced, but still managed the 16th spot.
This year, Brett has moved up in class to the 65 7/9 stock class, and will have plenty of competition to run against.
