The 2012 Windy Hills Regional in Ellerbe, NC turned out to be great weekend of racing for our South of the Border MX riders! Here’s a recap:
Christina Older won her regional qualifier to qualify for LLs for the 5th straight year. Older is moving to the Women’s class this year after finishing 2nd and 4th in the Girls class in 2009 and 2011.
South of the Border MX has big news to report. Multiple time AMA champion James “Bubba” Stewart Jr. has joined Yoshimura Suzuki Racing for the Supercross and Motocross racing circuits for the next few years. This comes after his abrupt release from the Joe Gibbs Racing MX Yamaha team.
Barely 24 hours after the end of the Monster Energy Supercross series in Las Vegas,
Gibbs issued a press release saying they had “mutually agreed” to part ways after only 6 months of working together. There were many rumors and Twitter clues that Stewart was unhappy with the way things were going at Gibbs Racing and his injuries prevented him from racing about half of the Supercross season.

I love the system. At the end of each day of training I can see how my times compared to the other riders and I can compare them to my earlier day’s sessions.
