Default Ohio 2012 qualifier for 6 Days Germany

This past weekend was the 2 day event, 107 miles each day with 3 grass special tests and 6 woods tests. I rode my 2012 300 race Gas Gas in the E3 class. It was hot and dust both days.
The bike ran like a champ as you guys know they do, I changed the air filter every chance I had, cause when I caught other riders I got dusted out. Needed to get by them fast, which wasn't easy, their top riders in their area of the country.
AMA takes the top 2 rides in the class and after the first day I was behind Mike Jolly by 21 seconds, just had to ride day 2 smart, still had to be aggressive, 3rd places was 25 seconds behind me and anything could go wrong.
Day 2 was extra dusty so I didn't push so hard into the corner and other riders trying to make time made mistakes in the early part of the day. With Moto Tally my pit crew kept me up to date on the scores.
I made the USA team and I am very excited to represent the USA in Germany on a Gas Gas.
