Alex wins Pace Bend Junior Race
Alex won the junior race at Pace Bend park by 2 minutes!. It was a great race for him as he started out in the lead but was going so fast that Coach Boris warned him about riding alone. By lap 3 of a four lap course it was clear Alex was having a great day. So Coach Boris gave him the green light to press the race. The driver of the lead car made a comment to the officials (can you believe this kid?) as he drove the last lap of the race. It was exciting to watch a young man who started riding competitively just last year, improve so much over the course of the year. Congratulations Alex!
