Today was pretty special. The folks over at FIM, the largest and most recognized motorcycle racing sanctioning body in the world, sent me a note thanking me for my years of competition at home in the U.S., and abroad during Motocross des Nations, as well as MXGP this year.

It has has been a long 4 months since my injury in St. Louis. It is so hard being hurt when your an athlete and can not do the simpliest things, like walking. It’s like being a caged up animal and all you want to do is tear a hole in your cage to get the heck out!
