NewYork my sons first wrestling tournament!

Recommended Posts

Ok, I know this isnt motocross related so I hope I dont get in trouble for this.

So today was my 5 year old sons (Ryder) very first wrestling tournament. I am very proud of him. Its been a long tiring winter, but every Tuesday, and Thursday he has stuck it out and gone to the gym for practice. We woke up at 6 this morning, weighed in at 8 for a tournament that was supposed to begin at 10. Didnt start till about 11:30. In his division there were three brackes A-C A being for those with the most experience etc..... He was supposed to be in division C, but was moved up to B to even out brackets. I am so proud, first match from neutral position, he scored takedown after takedown, and a near fall! He got beat on points due to multiple escapes after switching to top starting position. In the end he got beat by one point. Second match he got pinned right from the word go. I honestly think the long day kicked his butt. To his credit, he happily shook his opponents hands, and didnt cry. (lots of crying there) As we walked away he told me he'd get them back next tournament. Ok, I lied.... I'm beyond proud!

Great stuff!! Wrestling is the next greatest sport next to motorcycling!!!! I wrestled at one of NJ's premier h/s and got a ride to ESU. Coached for 10 years at the middle school and h/s levels too. I love the individuality of the sport, much like riding and racing.And, just like riding, keep it fun and he can have a long career in the sport.

Very cool - isn't it great to see kids going after something they enjoy. In 2 weeks I need to pull my daughter out of school a half day so that she can swim. Golds which is the best in the region meet for their 'Olympics' which is based on times throughout the year. She's in 7 events plus relays Friday - Sunday.

Very cool stuff and thanks for sharing your proud moment!

      I'm currently active military and have 4 years to decide on what to do when I get out. I have post 9/11 gi bill so I can go to college or technical school for free,  and I love the northeast and saw there's a good amount of mx tracks up there, good roads for motorcycles,  and excellent mountain biking. 
      I'm here for any input on good jobs up there that some of you have, I'm currently looking at real estate but they often work weekends.  So if you have a job that you don't hate going to everyday please let me know what you do and if you want to say the good and bad parts of it.
       
      thanks in advance

      So I'm starting to get a bit sick of riding the same old stretches of quad/sxs trails along the mass/NY border, and am looking to stretch my dualsport's legs a bit more in New England. 
      I know there's plenty of legal riding in the Western Mass state forests as well as class four roads in VT, I'm hoping there are some well traveled riders who can give me some recommendations for technical bike oriented trails in the area, or point me to riding groups who seek out such things.

      MCI is pleased to announce we have been working our butts off to create what we feel is the best Stump Jumper in quite some time! We first took the opportunity to (again) hold a Fall Sand Run. What that means to you is a more pleasant enduro experience. Pretty colors, no bugs, and virtually zero over-heating of the bikes/you. The fall is the best time of the year to ride, so come ‘on out and pin that thing!

      First on the agenda, we took a long hard look at NOT sending you down 539 in the morning so you know what that means… you’re going to get something a little warmer, a little “slower” to start the day. Trust us, we engineered things so you can start you day by testing your time keeping skills. No ridiculous “Tricks” that waste your whole day, just a fun way to show all you know how to get the 00/00!

      After the “warmer” morning you are going to be treated to an amazing route that crisscrosses the wonderful forest known as Bass River. The majority of your day will be filled with fun, flowing, smooth, clean pathways that have been painstakingly maintained by the elite MCI strike force. All you old MX guys, does the words “MX special tests” mean anything to you??? Ah yes, I can hear the rev-limiters popping now… If you come out of Bass River at the end of the day without a smile welded on your face, I’d recommend selling you dirt bike and taking up knitting.
