I had turned six and my dad had promised me that he would get me this pretty pink glittery bike with training wheels I begged for. And teach me to ride it. I had never attempted to ride a bike before so I was extremely nervous. My dad wanted to make sure I was prepared. On the day of my birthday, I was given safety gear first.
This hard work eventually paid off for Armstrong as he was then recruited to the national professional Motorola Cycling Team. After receiving the title of a professional athlete,
I had placed 1st in class D and 3rd in sectionals and I was the first alternate for states. This means that if one kid in my weight class didn’t make weight I would be wrestling in his spot. I never got to wrestle but it was a good thing because I wouldn’t have been able to make weight. After the normal season ended I gained 20 pounds in three
Not much, in my experience. Having a quality set of mud flaps will help keep the dirt and mud off your bikes while traveling, although they will probably end up getting messy anyway. 4: Drive somewhere you 've never been. The summer is a great time to explore new places.
Before climbing hills on foot, cycling possessed my passion for a couple of years as my only activity. After one year of riding with Tim, he announced that he would be climbing Mount Rainier. My response was simple; “good luck with that.” Though I began participating on training hikes with Tim as he prepared for his colossal challenge, the two of us continued to ride on a regular basis as riding the “Seattle to Portland” Bicycle Classic remained a mutual goal.
Dirt Bike Catastrophe Some four years ago on a small loop road, county road 355, hidden somewhere in the weeds was a convolution maze of dirt bike trails. It couldn’t have been but six months since my step brother, Austin and I started riding dirt bikes daily. We were nothing short of motocross eligible teenagers, jumping feet off the ground, sliding every turn, and being so dirty at the end of the day that two showers were necessary. All of these things changed very suddenly in a wreck that changed our lives.
I was so excited that I had gotten two buckles form nationals in the same year. That really put us well in the average. The top 5 in points and the top 10 in the average come back to the short go. Coming in we were setting third in the world, even though I did not know we were setting that good.

The Sumner Valley bike track amazed me. So first there is a starting hill, then there is a triple, next is a table top, after that there is a double and first turn and then there is triple then two doubles and the second turn then here comes the complicated part table two rollers step up double step down triple the third turn and finally two rollers and then a table finish line. When I was at the lumberjack nationals it was the summer of the fourth grade.
My team was awesome. I was with Tim Clayton and Cole Morrison. Our team did very good the first game and I scored the winning shot for us to advance to the next round of the tournament. I knew that since I made that shot it would be my time to shine in the next game because coach would be watching me. Before the game started I looked into coaches eyes and he smiled and nodded his head.
He was raised in a family that did not have much money to spare, or spend on traveling around the United States. “Once the season progressed, and we started getting good at racing, it was already time to put the bikes up, and wait for the next season.” Says Ryan Dungey. But that never stopped him; Ryan Dungey eventually started getting better as he moved up on bikes, and classes. By the age of 16 he managed to get a chance to sign a pro contract, and get paid to race full time.
So I rode my dirt bike on the dirt path so I won’t get hurt. So when my friends got them a four wheeler or a dirt bike we cruise with each other and we don’t go to fast when we riding it because we don’t want to fall off so when I was enjoying myself my daddy had to take my four wheeler and dirt bike to a shop because it had broken down because I was riding it every day. So it got out of the shop my daddy let my dirt bike and
After that season I was more motivated than I have ever been. I was determined to go all out for my first varsity season. I convinced my dad to sign me up for a gym membership. At first, I wasn’t taking it that seriously, I would go around 3 times a week. But later on I got myself a partner to train with me and we pushed each other to our limits.
I can say it has been over a year since I did my last amateur cross country race, between moving, family/work responsibilities and a self admitted laziness in actually getting my ass to a race early Sunday morning when I could be sleeping in, I do, in fact miss this part of my cycling experience, therefore I am hoping to join in on the racing festivities next spring when the local mountain bike series starts up again. Even though I have not done much racing lately, I have been doing plenty of riding and having a blast exploring all the sweet trails in my small part of the world. While writing this article on racing I was reminded of all the excitement, nervousness and unplanned chaos that comes hand in hand with weekend racing and I suddenly remembered why I began racing in the first place: because I love the chaos, I love the feeling of butterflies in my stomach as I stand at the start line, waiting for the race director to yell, GO, and I love getting beat up on a technically and strenuously demanding race course and then crawling across the
At six years of age, I broke and trained my first horse. I have trained two world champion Racking Horses and several state champions. Their smooth ride will spoil even dedicated western cowboys.
