I know why they call her Super Girl!

FRIGGIN' TEA! WOW A national title. 2nd in Middleweight SuperSport. She has come so far in the last two years. Every time she rides, she goes a bit faster and more consistent. She BATTLED for that 2nd place position! IT WAS AWESOME TO WATCH! Andrew and I were standing on the fence line yelling and cheering. Knowing how hard she has worked in the past few years, I'm not ashamed to say that seeing her up there on that podium spot, brought a tear to my eye.

Your dedication, determination and drive to improve is very admirable. I can't wait to be your pit bitch at an AMA event some day.

She kicks all sorts of ass, my daughter likes talking to her (even though she can only understand Tea's curse words), and gives back to the sport. A great role model.

^ that.

I'm way more proud of her second place in MWSS and that hard fought battle than the Championship... I mean, all she had to do was beat me, and that's not that hard, she's been doing that all season.

Still, that #1 plate is pretty cool. She'll have her name up in lights at the AMA awards banquet in Vegas along with Chimi, and Alex.

I agree I have a 2 2nd's and 2 3rd place trophies that mean more to me then my 1st's. I hope this one holds a special place for her, because I as well was very proud of her.

Awww, you guys make me cry here.

Thank you all so much!
Like I mentioned before, all my riding friends were in this race with me, because I learned from all of you and i had to use all i've learned for that 2nd place.
It was back to back with the other race and i was too exhausted to pull away and shake the guy off my tail. I had to strategize and I did well!!

Jen, you picked up 2 seconds in our race. it was NOT easy to beat you. Christi picked up 4 seconds since the qualifying. It was all but easy. else, i wouldn't have been as tired for the SuperSport

You all did great and I'm proud of all of you!!

Thank you so much for the kind words. It means a world to me!!

I remember my first track day, we were in the same N group at ACC full. You should be VERY proud of how far you have come in such a short amount of time to get to where you are today.
