Mikey vs. Mammoth

The scenery was beautiful and the competition was tough. On the first day of racing, Mikey (#555) placed 21st amongst 60 of America’s most qualified mini riders. On the second day, he was pumped and ready to clear the freeway tabletop (pictured above), and he did it with ease. This little boost earned him a few more passes, placing 18th. His parents are proud and hold high hopes for him as he has two more years in this class!

“What do you think about on the starting gate, Mikey?”

“I think “Mike Alessi”!”, says Sandoval. I think Alessi would be proud of this hole shot! Way to go, Mikey!!

Awesome series of images captured by Mike at Factory Trash.
