Just over 4 months away, the AMA District 17 Enduro Season will be underway. Last season I had the initial goal of competing in the complete D17 HareScramble series, though after the initial excitement, it seemed an unattainable goal due to the sheer number of events throughout the year. Along the way, I managed to sidetrack myself with a brief (yet exciting) stint in the world of supermoto. I continued on with a couple more HareScrambles with mediocre success (bike changes, failures, etc) , before finally giving in and going out to try racing in an Enduro. I quickly realized what I should have been doing all along.
So here we are, January of 2012 with just a few short months to be completely prepped for the upcoming season. I’ve decided to set some short(er) term goals in concrete here. Without a clear goal in mind, I’ll never formulate a clear plan of attack. I’ll never win anything, without a plan. So here is my simple 2012 goal:
Top 5 Overall B D17 Enduro
That’s it. I KNOW I have what it takes to get myself there. I’ll have to push myself & machine for sure, but I am confident in what I can do. It’s time for me to attack. I’m taking the year off from swapping bikes. I’ll campaign the BMW G450X for 2012. That is final. I’m excited. You should be too.
We’ll see you on the trails.
