This memory popped up on FB today. Running of the Bulls in 2013 to celebrate my 40th. Seems like it was 10yrs ago not 5 with as busy as I’ve been the last few years. My last actual “vacation”. Although, I’m not complaining about my life. Wouldn’t change a thing. #memories #pamplona #ibiza #runningofthebulls #2013 #bucketlist

Well I’d say the Philly trip was a success. Rocky ✅ Liberty Bell ✅ Philly Cheesesteak✅ Paddy’s Pub✅ kick some ass.....(to be continued)!! Hung out with some BMX family tonight. Watched Pastrana jump Caesar’s and back to hotel at airport. AJ raced hard this weekend but just couldn’t find his groove. Had some good laps at times and finished really strong taking a 2nd in cruiser. #memories #philadelphia #houston #bmx #ajthebullet #alphabicycleproducts #friends

After the race is over you let the kids play. These kids lay it on the line all day until the race is over. 1200 water balloons and ready to fight. #bmx #memories #usabmx #whywedoit #kids #athletes #parents #waterballoons I need a count for all gun shops and gun manufacturers in Houston.

Do you know what time it is? Why yes, yes I do. Philly bound for a race. Our goals are kick ass, see the Rocky statue and Liberty Bell, eat a Philly cheesesteak and drink a beer from “Paddy’s Pub”. #pappasitos #margarita #dontleavehomewithoutit #bmx #houston #philly #alphabicycleproducts #ajthebullet #southwestairlines #usabmx

We left for the airport Friday night at 7:30 pm in Baku. After a 3 hour flight from Baku to Doha, a quick 3 hour nap at hotel in Doha and then a 15 hour flight to Miami we made back to US soil. 1st pic is when we arrived at our hotel in South Beach at 6:30 tonight. I mean what else would we do but decompress and catch up on our phone!? These are some pics from our voyage home. From AJ running in to new friends from South Africa at Baku airport to me getting FB messages from parents from Australia trying to find AJ’s family so their son could stay in touch. It was such an amazing experience racing aside. The city of Baku was great as were the people. The depth of talented riders was crazy even though the rider count wasn’t near what it was last year in the US. It was truly a “worldly” worlds. Looking forward to the short flight home to Texas and being home. #homesweethome #usa #2018bmxworldchampionships #welltraveled #ajthebullet #miami #southbeach #texas #fatherandson #prouddad

Well our 2018 World Championships have come to an end. This pic was after AJ was eliminated in semis. I couldn’t be more proud of the way he rode this week. I thought we were done in quarter mains but he found a way to lay down the best lap I’ve ever seen him ride. Coming from gate 8 to take the 3 and keep the dream alive. However our semi was stacked beyond belief. The 4 kids that made it out went 1-2-4-5 in the main. 4 of the kids didn’t lose a lap in the 1st 3 rounds. Congrats to our buddy Ronnie Kim for picking up his 3rd straight world title and also to our other buddy Wyatt Worth for bringing home the W8. The amount of fast riders was really unbelievable and I know this experience will push AJ even more and make him a better rider moving forward. He swapped out jerseys with a Russian competitor and also a kid from Belgium. Made more friends from all over the world. These moments I will cherish for the rest of my life regardless of the results. Thanks to our Factory team @alphabicycleproducts back in the US for all the support getting us here and to all of the @usabmx staff for their support behind the scenes. Now we get to relax for a few days and take it all in. I am truly grateful. Big thanks to @alphabicycleproducts for all the support of AJ as well as @tangentproducts @boxcomponents @flyracingusa @onyxracing @veetireco @cyberhorse_sportswear @bad_ace #usa #baku #2018bmxworldchampionships #memories #bmx #usabmx #alphabicycleproducts #grateful #blessed #ajthebullet

What an awesome day of racing. I am so proud of the way AJ raced his cruiser today. He came out on fire and won his 1st 3 heat motos coming from behind in 2 of them. Then took a solid 3rd in his 1/4 main and was in a qualifying position to make the main in his semi and got caught and passed right at the finish line. It was heartbreaking for sure but it will add some fuel to the fire for tomorrow’s class races. Not coming home with a cruiser World plate by inches, but to finish in the top 10 in the world is something to be proud of. Stay tuned for tomorrow. Gonna be fun!!! It was awesome seeing all the support from back home today. Thank you guys so much. #usa #baku #2018bmxworldchampionships #ajthebullet #alphabicycleproducts #prouddad
