Pictures and Videos of my son racing his 125.

I'm just gonna put all the races in this one thread from now on so I don't clutter up the forum.

Here is the helmet cam video of Bradens last SX race. He allowed himself to be pushed out on the holeshot and let his nemesis on the DRR in front of him and wasn't able to get the lead back, but he made a last second push at the finish line and came very close to snatching first place. I still can't get him to down shift coming into the turns. lol.


Here's Braden coaching up his sister before her first race ever.



Braden clearing his favorite table top.



Coming real close on the finish line.



Braden doing the post race coaching. lol



Trophy time.



Braden and his sister.


Here are the current standings for our local AMA District 13 MX points for the 90cc production class.


Our next race is on the 17th for the local AMA District 13 MX race. Braden is currently in first place and this will be Shelbys first 50cc race, so it should be an exciting day for us.

Here are the 90cc points standings right now.

I have some +2 Alba's on my YFZ and it's unreal how well it corners! He'll like that a lot!

Lol, that would be great, but as long as they are having fun, and not stuck on video games, it is worth every penny.

I hope so, we ordered forward 1" and +3" a arms, so hopefully it allows him to carry more speed comfortably in the corners.

Thanks. It's always a nail biter between those two.
A arms should be here any day. Already got the stem and clamp. They are up 1" and +3", so they should make a considerable difference in stability.
Believe me, he hates watching the helmet cam videos with me after the race and I keep harping about his corner rpm. Lol but if he gets frustrated enough with losing, he will start doing it.

All of our races down here in NC were cancelled due to rain, so we decided to drive up to Breezewood Proving Grounds in PA to hit up there outlaw race. On our way there we had a caliper lock up on the motorhome, so we were late getting to the track. we got there 20 mins before the first moto started, so the kids didn't get any practice in, and we have never been there before, so we were a little nervous. but it all turned out great and we had a lot of fun. Braden got 2nd in the 90-125cc class and Shelby got 5th in the 50-70cc class.

Here is Bradens helmet cam video.


Here are a few pictures.
