Spencer's 1st Race
« on: December 13, 2009, 09:00:28 PM »
Well Spencer did his 1st race today at Santos and he did OK. he was very nervous since he had no idea what to expect. He finished 6th out of nine boys, and most of the other boys had raced the whole series. he had a crash from another boy running into him, but he had a good time. Now that he got the 1st one over with and knows what to expect, i think he will do better in his next one. from this picture you can see how nervous he was... ;D

Here is a link to a short video on FaceBook. you can really see how nervous he is in this... He thought he came in 4th, but results showed him 6th.. I was not at the finish line since I wanted video of him on the trail.. You can hear all the people go  "Eww" when he falls...

And Art (355) right beside her. 

Pam (459) in the background.  I believe she came in first in her class?

355 is not Art... He raced in the Yellow wave, I did not hang around for that... Had to head home and take my wife to lunch for her Birthday...

Now for a bit of irony, starting left to right. The order we lined up at the start of this race in the pic is the way we finished in the overall series. Humberto 1st, me 2nd, kyle 3rd and to his side Steve 4th, kind of freaky :)
