2012 Season Recap

It’s that time of year again. Time to break out all the trophies and take that collective photo and assess my season as a whole.

2012 was another up and down year for me. It had a lot of disappointment due to having multiple issues during mains and semi-finals where I showed a lot of promise towards podiums or even victories. 2012 also had some good wins and also a lot more learning experiences and growth which will be utilized fully for upcoming years.

Here is my 2012 season breakdown:

1st Place Finishes – 29 2nd Place Finishes – 3 3rd Place Finishes – 1 Top Qualifier Honors – 32

So a huge thanks to all of my sponsors for making this year possible. I learned a lot. Had my expected hardships but also some good high’s as well. I really feel my race package is the best it’s ever been and I just know 2013 is going to be a break-out year for me!
