Well I have to admit, I've really come to love this sport thanks to my boys.  Erik grew up riding motocross with his dad and now is carrying on the tradition with Charlie and Max.  So when the pros come to town it has become a family tradition that we go to the supercross races.  We spend the whole day there visiting the pits, checking out practice and qualifying rounds, opening show, races, complete with hot chocolate and cotton candy.  This year the AMA Supercross moved to the Oakland Colleseium from AT&T Park in San Francisco.  I was bummed when I had my telephoto 70-200mm lens "confiscated" because I did not have media credentials.  It didn't matter much anyway since it was raining off and on and I didn't get too many pics.  But the rain made for some exciting racing--lots of slipping and sliding.  I sat next to Charlie, and he was a doll cheering for his favorite rider Yamaha 450 rider #7 James Stewart while Max fell asleep on Erik.  Charlie even made a sign to show James his support :) ( I made a sign too!) Did I mention that Charlie is an encyclopedia of knowledge on supercross. To top the night off Charlie's rider won his class and my 2 riders won first and second in their class. Boo-Yeah! xo, Stacey
