“The fans were nuts and all really into it, especially all the fans in front of the podium! They were so
loud that it was hard to hear. I’ve had good and bad races at Red Bud, but any time you can go out and
go 1-1, it’s a great memory. I really enjoyed myself at Red Bud this year. It depends on the amount of
rain they get and how it’s prepped, but the track is usually really good to race on. If you’ve ever been to
a motocross race in Europe, the Euro fans have so much enthusiasm. Red Bud is like racing in Europe as
far as crowd enthusiasm goes.”
“The fans in front of the podium and the fans who are watching the racing just go nuts. I got there
early on Friday and watched some Amateur races that were running at night. There were so many people
there, and a number of people were drinking beer. I really had the feeling of being in Europe. Red Bud is
different from most of the other races in the USA and is definitely the best National on the yearly circuit.
Everything is super crazy, and the whole thing is awesome.”

labor of love.
