02.21.12 Hello there sports fans!! PT checking in with a little update on my world!
First off I have to say, BUSY!! I think I am more busy now that before. Its a little crazy, good crazy. The past few months have really been a whirlwind.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to the Monster Energy Gives Back and Make a Wish charity event in Corona CA. What a cool deal. We made a young mans day, ripping carts and goofing around. Myself, Twitch, TJ Lavin, Trigger Gumm, Weeman, and Rick Thorne all were in attendance and had a blast. Cool event for an even cooler cause.
Lucky for me SuperCross (A1) was the next day, so I was treated to my 1st ever Anaheim 1. I am not sure I have ever seen so many fans in my life! Angels stadium was totally sold out! Pretty Cool.
The next week I was off to Towgotee MT Lodge for the 2013 Polaris Photo shoot. I have to say be on the look out because the folks at Polaris have done their homework and have some amazing stuff coming out this spring. I rode a bit and smiled pretty for the camera! Such a great group of people. Too much fun!
Then of coarse after the shoot it was time for Winter X Games. This year was one of the busiest and most amazing I have been a part of yet. All my Monster Teammates killed it. Especially the sled guys. Cory Davis with his ridiculous whips, Joe Parsons with his finely tuned run and Gator Wrestler flip variation, but the man of the year award goes to Heath Frisby. A front flip????? Really??? Unreal and the kid stomped it! I was super proud of all the boys this year. It was a treat to be there and be a part of history. What the heck are we going to do next year?? Remote control tandem front flip?? Haha
Well with the new year already a month old I am looking forward to getting on the sled a little more (maybe even upside down againwho knows ;) I am excited about getting in the mountains in the next few weeks on my new Polaris Assault! Ripping! Looks to be a super busy year so stay tuned for more crazy stuff in the life of PT!!
