Sweet. 2 Nationals less than an hour from the house.

Never attended a national so this should be fun that both of the 2 tracks I frequent are hosting Nationals in '13.  Guess im gonna have to break out the class bike, cause im not where i want to be on the cruiser.  The 2 tracks are Chesapeake BMX and First State BMX. 

Anyone else have an easy traveling schedule?

Sweet.  I and Son of Thunder will most likely hit both of those as well.

Re: Sweet. 2 Nationals less than an hour from the house.

You should race cruiser also.  This is my first year racing, I freestyled as a kid and only raced about 5 times between 12-14 years old. I have raced 5 National races this year and haven't made a main yet in 36-40 Cruiser.  That is my goal for next year though! Riding with those guys makes you a lot faster!  My first race I was beat by the entire last straight, now I am at least close enough that if one of them make a mistake I have a chance!  I did make the Semi's in Louisville and ended up 16 for the East Coast Nats.  I will be on a 20 in 2013, but only for Nats and State events. And, I will still be racing cruiser.  Everyone told me not to bother racing a Nat, they don't because they don't have a chance.  They were wrong!  I may be motofill but I have a great time.  On Sunday at Louisville a first time cruiser rider made the main in the other group because 2 riders in his rack didn't show up because of the rain. The Cruiser Motos are stacked, but they are fun and well worth it!

Trust me I might end up running cruiser but I chase Bynum around every weekend.  He's like #5-6 NAG right now in 31-35.  and unless I can close the gap between now and then is the deciding factor.  the only advantage id have over most is its my local tracks.  Im thinking Ill just put all the energy into the class bike as I too will only race the states and nationals on it. The bigger thing is getting my son ready for the 2 and under strider class.

There is so much time between Motos at a Nat that you get enough rest to run both.  Even losing is a good time at Nats!
