Well, 2014 has been a great start for the Dream Traxx crew. We had an amazing time in Australia, building a brand new facility that will change the face of Australian motocross! Newcastle MotoX Complex has big dreams and visions, and we were pumped that they asked us to be a part. They still have many steps to go before they open their doors to the public, but by the picture below you can tell they are off to a great start! We wish them all the best!
As soon as we landed back stateside, we were off and running to the private compound of Chad Reed. But, then we were reminded of how unpredictable Florida weather can be. With a few days of rain, we had to park the dozers for a bit and let things dry up. As the sun shone again, we got the dozer blades digging in. We had a great week of building, and as you can see below, were spoiled by being able to watch Chad train as we were building. Just as we were putting the finishing touches on the track, Florida’s unpredictability slapped us in the face once again. We received more rain in 15 minutes than we had the whole week prior. So, the finishing touches were going to have to wait a few more days!
Luckily, I had a stress relieving vacation already planned – and it could not have been more needed. It was time for our annual family ski trip, and after the past weeks at Chad’s, it was a great way to get my mind off of the chaos and spend some time with the family. We will be heading back to Florida on Saturday, and will hit the ground running to get all of our top guys tracks ready for east coast. But until then, I will be soaking up every minute of this…..
We are starting the new year off right! We jumped on the big bird and flew over the pond to the place down under – Australia! We are teaming up with a brand new facility – Newcastle MotoX Complex to help create and build their dream training facility! This will be a facility like nothing Australia has ever seen, and will rival any US based training facility! Trust us when we say it will be amazing! Between the elevation, picturesque setting, and multi-stage plans and goals this facility has, it will be a one of a kind, world class training facility! Stay tuned as we document the progress of the build!
It’s almost Christmas time!! And we were able to take a break from supercross to build a new motocross track for a family in Georgia! It was a nice change of pace for us, and they were a great family to work for! Check out some before and after pictures below!
We have had a whirlwind of a few weeks! From the compound of Trey Canard, straight to the “top secret project” (watch the video below), to Ryan Villopoto’s, over to the compound of James Stewart and Malcolm Stewart, then Zack Freeberg, and on to a plane to Texas!
All those weeks went so smooth – there was bound to be a hiccup! And that there was, when I had to book a United flight instead of my typical Delta. I had a feeling something was going to go bad…and that it did. Landed in Houston, went to reboard, and get this “the plane is now overweight, we are taking no more passengers”! Are you kidding me?! In all my years of flying, I have never had this happen. To make matters worse, they took all of our luggage on that flight. With no other flights out until the next day – we had to purchase another airline ticket, ON A DIFFERENT CARRIER, to get to our final destination – Odessa, Texas. Home of Friday Night Lights! We finally arrived, went and got our luggage, and are now halfway through the build. Stay tuned and we will post some finished pictures this weekend.
But, to go along with our rough trip out to Texas – we thought this was fitting….
The 2014 Supercross season is getting closer, which means we have been logging a ton of dozer hours! This is one of our favorite times of the year. All our boys are in full boot camp mode, and have a huge list of goals for the upcoming season. It is cool to see them all have that fighting spirit, and ready to make big things happen!
