He Earned His First Paycheck

Still not the smooth run that I would like to have, but Moon is keeping up with the big boys, even with all of my pilot errors. We were awful wide going into first, but he came back out of it good. We went into second pretty good, but came out wide...

We were a little wide getting to third. He was really good and let me move him over some. He came out just a powering...
Our time was 17.098. The winning time was 16.018. We picked up 2nd place in the 3D. Obviously Moon has the speed, now if I could just get my butt in and out of the saddle at the right time...

Megan made a nice exhibition run on Rip. First was sort of wide all the way around. Second was wide going into it...

They came out of it in great form though...

Third was beautiful...
Megan's form is back on track and Rip's run reflected it. I'm so proud of my girl!!

WOO HOO! congrats on winning the contest! And congrats on both of your runs! Moon was smoking-that is a great time! I love it-if I could get my butt in and out of the saddle at the right time! ROTFL!! It's normally always pilot error!
Way to go Megan and Rip!
Sounds like tons of fun!
