Race day was Thursday and we got a half hour of practice on Wednesday. Summit Orthotics and Prosthetics had built a new prosthetic leg for the race, but unfortunately I didn't have enough time riding with it to feel comfortable so I was using the one they had built previously for me. Todd at Summit really puts a lot of time and effort into my prosthetics and I have 100% faith in him, if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be riding at the level I am at.So, practice went OK, I spent more time wanting to hit the big jumps than thinking about the rest of the track which kind of put a damper on getting comfortable. I came up short one time and realized there was only one other rider hitting it, so I concentrated on the rhythm sections and felt like I had great speed where I needed and could make up time if I wasn't jumping the finish line jumps.Thursday came quickly and we got one 10-minute practice to feel the track out. I was really feeling especially good with the Race Tech suspension, it was a life saver! I could charge the rhythm sections without having the bike blow through and bottom and with the dry, slick conditions it really held to the ground. X Games is a made for TV event, so we lined up to the starting gate in a weird rush and were told to hurry up and wait. Then as soon as we were told to wait the gate dropped. I was lined up next to Jim Wazny and with the bottom end my Muzzy Exhaust produced I got a great jump off the line! Jim and I leaned on each other as we dropped down into the coliseum, I was kind of pushed outside on the little 'S' turn at the bottom of the start straight. I braked and cut across to the far left side of the track behind about 8 other riders. Most of the other riders doubled the finish line jumps while we were still bunched up, I rolled the first one and kind of stepped up the second part of it gaining 6 positions instantly. After a short rhythm section I was in second behind Wazny. He went way wide on the 180 degree corner so I shot up under him and passed him for the lead. I led the first lap until we came to the finish line jumps, Mike Schultz was behind me and being the only guy that was jumping it he went for it passing me in the process. It's hard to be a FMX guy and get passed on a jump! But things were still looking and feeling good, my bike was running and handling great and I had only 5 more laps to go.The same lap, I got a little hung up on a corner before a rhythm section and another guy came up along side of me in an 'S' turn before the climb out of the coliseum. We tangled after his elbow repeatedly tried to knock my hand off the handlebars causing me to slide out. I landed on my prosthetic and when I got back up I could feel something wasn't right with the stability of my foot. The next jump I landed hard off of it broke completely off at the ankle area, so I had to take a DNF. That's racing!All things considered, the whole X games experience was awesome! I came out of it with the determination to really push hard this year and redeem myself by winning next year. I couldn't do any of this with out the support of my family, friends and sponsors who have shown so much enthusiasm. I am back in Oregon riding 3-4 times a week now and making plans to race the Winter X Games adaptive sno-cross event in 2011. So don't count me out, because my journey has just begun.
