Just a few days after the Lake County Fair SX, it was off to the grand state of Tennessee for the Amateur National Motocross Championships. Phil and Smalls rolled down in style with Travis and Adam from EVS.

Once they arrived the crew set up pits on Vendor Row and opened the trailer to help all the EVS riders that needed support over the week.

Phil took part in the Parts Unlimited Pit Bike National and took the overall win after a heated battle with Smagical rider Shaun Miller.  A big shout out to Smagical Athletes Kody Kamm, who ran as high as second in the 250A and Jake Boss who rode well within the top 20 in both supermini classes.  Tough luck and a get well soon goes out to Vaughn Mays and Matthew Menzer, who both left the ranch with more pain than they arrived with, better luck next year guys!  Congrats to all the riders who qualified and put on great racing in all classes.

Lake County Fair SX

Monday, August 30th, 2010

Sorry for the delay in posting, but after lots of travel, and even more internet troubles, updates just weren’t able to be updated very up-to-date.  A few weeks back the gang traveled down to Grayslake, IL for the Lake County Fair SX.  As you can see by the pictures, they made the most of the car-pooling idea and crammed as much stuff and as many people into one vehicle as possible.  Along the way they met a freestyler from LG who recorded a quick beat about Wilbur the Goat and picked up one of his CD’s for Smagical 3.  

Full truck?

At the race Phil managed to take the win in the Pitbike race each night over a speedy Mike Wendricks.  On the big bikes Ross Martin and Travis Sewell split wins, with Smagical Ripper Kody Kamm coming home in third.

Nicks Birthday Party

Nicks Birthday Party

The world lost a good one today.  Nick McClellan’s fight with cancer finally came to an end.  But it wasn’t for lack of fight, as everyone who knew Nick knew that he wasn’t one to just give up.  I remember many nights in the Smagical Acres barn shredding the mini with Nick.  Its a tight halfpipe, not too friendly for bikers…but that didnt stop him from rippin the ramp apart.  Or the night out at the pond when we transformed it into a snowpark for skies and snowboards.  After nearly everyone left, Nick stuck it out till the late hours, (technically the next day) and rode everything with us.   Nailing 540s over the step up and gapping onto the double-stacked tables, he stacked some shots!      Even though he may no longer be here with us on earth, he is with us in spirit.  And dont you think for second he’s not riding a mountain full of powder in the clouds somewhere.  You will be missed, Nick, but never forgotten.  I wish his family and friends all the strength in the world through the time of mourning.  

 R.I.P. Nick McClellan
