Weekend at the OTC….
Going in we knew this was going to be a great weekend, a full USA BMX national, the Olympic Time Trials, Hall of Fame dinner, and a great weekend it was.
Shannon and Jeremy drove down on Thursday and got the pits set up in Factory Row and get Jeremy there for practice. Dani also came down early on Thursday to get a bit of practice in on the track as well. We all knew it was going to be an early Friday with the split schedule for the weekend.
As Friday Morning rolled around, Dani was at the pits bright and early for the first practice, then rolled in Jeremy and Shannon, followed up by Blake who is fresh of off his win at Angelfire last weekend and last but no least Ken Pliska who we haven’t seen much at the Supercross Pits since his bad leg break years ago in Boulder. But Ken is on a mission and wanting to come back strong.
The pits were feeling good, we had the generator working so everyone was able to relax in the A/C if need be, Jeremy and KJ made the front of the trailer their little chill room as they should, with some comfy chairs, the A/C blowing cold and the iPod dock and music pumping. The rest of the pits were stocked with Snacks and cookies along with all of the Powerbar’s , Water and Gatorade that everyone needed to keep hydrated through the long weekend.
While practice was going on Friday, Elliot McGrath of Stile industries brought over some new jerseys for Dani, Ken and Randy Roberts. Shannon and Blake were joking around and tried to put on Randy’s jersey at the same time. and stretched it out a bit for him. “The Bulldozer” showed up on Saturday to cheer Mikey Day on at the Olympic Trials and pick up his Jerseys.
