Can't believe Rod would put the rabbit ears on Juleah like that. Rod and Juleah got to go to the Nascar race with us in Kansas and we had a blast. The race kept getting rain delayed from the showers but it ended up being a good race. Juleah picked Carl Edwards as her driver and he didn't have the best of luck from that point on, I wonder what that was all about.
Just another picture of the condo complex that we stayed at while we were in Breckenridge. It was a very nice place and just to the left of it was snowflake lift which when you got on, would take you up to the base of Peak 8. It was the only lift that I have ever ridden on that makes a turn half way up the mountain.

Brent on atv track at home from Brent on Vimeo.
I found this video and thought it would be funny to put it up on the blog. This was shot in February of 2000. I had just started racing and this is the track we built at home to practice on. The atv that I am riding is a Polaris Sport 400 that we had modified for racing. Lots of power but terrible suspension. Just watching the video makes me remember how much the landings hurt.

The day we finally got to take Brennen up on the mountain. The weather was terrible and the only pictures I got to take of him on his skis turned out blurrry because it was snowing so hard. He did really good but after lunch, his stomach started hurting so I took him back to the condo and Denise stayed on the mountain practicing her turns. Brennen and I drove around and took pictures of some of the places we thought looked nice or would be good places to stay the next time.

This is on day one of our Breckenridge trip. The weather was not the best and it was extremely cold and windy. It was so cold and windy they had to shut down some of the lifts going to the higher parts.
We did a snowmobile tour with Rod's family and had amazing weather for it. The one we chose took us up to the Continental Divide. Brennen rode with me and Denise rode by herself. These were so fun, this was the first time for all of us to ride snowmobiles. It was a blast and the ones we got to take were Polaris snowmobiles.

I took a few photos of our first day on the slopes at Breckenridge. It was so cold and the wind was gusting at times of over 70 mph. They had to shut the two superlifts on Peak 8 down because the wind was so bad. The slopes were great, there was plenty of powder and they were all groomed really well. Brennen took ski lessons and learned how to snow ply and just needs to work on his turns now.

Another one of my favorite pictures just after getting off one of the lifts on Copper Mountain. This was one of the only days that we had this much sun shine since it snowed practically the entire time we were there.

There were so many beautiful places to take pictures while we were at Atlantis. This was in front of one of the many waterfalls.
This is the Champion 214 fish and ski boat. We ordered it with the wake board tire. This is by far the nicest and best laid out fish and ski boats that I have ever seen. Denise helped to pick out all the details and design of this one just in case we decided to keep it for ourselves.
We can't get enough these right now in stock. They are so awesome too. I want one so bad but we can never get enough ahead on them. They have been the most popular unit that we have had ever. They are also a blast to ride and super fast to.

Kevin wanted to see if a fatter rear tire would fit on the 2008 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 Custom. We ordered one in and installed it and it fit perfectly with just a little trimming of the belt guard. This tire we installed is a 230 wide tire and it changed the look of the bike dramatically.
