XGames - The Inside Scoop
Within a few jumps of practice, I ended up drifting off to the side of the landing during a jump and took a small spill. Unfortunately resulting in dislocating my shoulder and unable to practice anymore. Due to 'protocol' the medics on site wouldn't pop it back into place until getting x-rays and scans to ensure no worse damage was done. But we had less than an hour until the event and I wouldn’t have made it in time for finals. Thankfully fellow motocross rider Josh Sheehan was there to help pop it back into place quickly as he is familiar with the injury.
Big thanks for checking out and reading my article. Also a huge thanks to XGames, their staff, and the track crew for always doing the best they can. Also thank you Casey @defyfocusphotography for all the photos!
For anyone that knows me (Soap Boy), then odds are you also know Kortney (Soap Girl).
She has been my sidekick the past 5 years and I was very excited to have the opportunity to ask her to marry me at the event. Due to the pressure she HAD to say yes. A future blog will tell what the future holds ;)
Funny Story: Jarryd Mcneil actually set Kortney and I up on a double date 5+ years ago. And the rest is history!
They call him "Soap Boy" - founder and creator of Grip Clean.
