I took our grandsons to watch the most recent MX event in Washougal WA.  It was so exciting! I had never watched the races before this year...usually I had worked a concession booth for the Knights of Columbus each year so our youth groups could earn money to go build homes in Mexico.


This year....we found a perfect place to watch...under some trees but we could see almost all the curves in the track.  It was one of the most amazing events I've ever seen. It was electrifying, exciting and terrifying all at once. The "young" participants were so DRIVEN to win, I don't think they had a thought in their head that they could have an accident at those high speeds. (No one had a real accident so all was good.) But my heart would be thumping so hard just watching the riders slam their way up the giant hill climb and the high powered jumps over the other hills, the killer curves and the different ways the riders managed the "whoop-de-dos" (7-8 little hills all lined up in a row)...Gut wrenching.  I could tell they all wanted to win no matter the cost.


I also learned things like the meaning of the flags that are held out as "messages" such as the blue flag that says the leaders of the pack are coming up behind the rest of the group and have "lapped" them. The other riders are expected to "give way" to the front runners. 










I will definitely go again.  The Washougal Motocross is an awesome event!

It's good to mingle like that and it's good to be a little bit scared and a little bit excited at the same time, right?
