Default Kallin's Rookie Year in Motocross

My 5 year old son Kallin participated in his first motocross race this past Sunday. He is in the stock 50cc 4-8 year old class, and would of won if first was last. We all had a great time. I have a list of things to work with him on. Like not holding the throttle in one place and pining it to take off from turns. Should have it now as we worked on it when we got home. He started riding his 50cc KTM two years ago with training wheels. The wheels came off the beginning of last year, and he made some practices at Byron Motorsports track late in the fall. He raced six other kids, all older, up to 8 years old, and experienced at racing. The next slowest was a girl on her third year racing. He finished a half a lap behind her in the second moto, unsure about the first. They race two motos, five laps each. He did get lapped as some kids in his class are fast! He fell twice. Got help up the first time, and gather himself up the second. We worked on that the days leading up to the race. Racing again in two Sundays.
