 Big congrats to Aaron from SCG Racing at Fontana, we believe in you bro. You do us proud at Southridge, you were a big topic of conversation at todays race in the pits..."Still can't believe he started here only a few years ago.". Keep on doing what you're doing cause it's working. Looking forward to watching you at Ft. Bill in a few weeks. Get ya some!

 Good to see the USA starting to get some form back in the sport. Names like John Tomac, Mike King, Myles Rockwell, Shaun Palmer, Leigh Donavan, Missy Giovi seem a lifetime ago. Never again will we see a rider win a World Championship in XC and back it up with a second in the DH. JT still rules the roost.
