We are 2 days away from celebrating the new year and a week away from the beginning of the 2012 AMA Supercross season. Exciting times. More so for me as I am moving to something new, exciting (bis repetita), challenging, super cool, different, rewarding and what will be some kind of a change in our family life.
I have left AGV Dainese, after 4 great years there, achieving a few good things like the return of AGV in MX with 2 new helmets, the development of the MTB segment for Dainese, in order to try to take the brand back to where it belongs, and more. I was comfortable there, I had a good living, a good crew and had tons more things to achieve, more challenges and successes ahead.
Until one day I was offered something that is difficult to refuse; a project that would demand more and better from me, a project that was exciting, that was C.O.O.L and more especially, the opportunity to work with gentlemen I have always admired and respected in this industry.
Definitely an opportunity I couldn't refuse, an opportunity that forced me out of my safe cave, but that is already so worth it and rewarding.
But enough with me. Boriiiiiiiiing!!.
We are 1 week from the end of another memorable silly-season, that's what's the most exciting part of celebrating this new year.
If last SX season was described as the best season of them all (let's keep things in perspective though, despite Ralph's enthusiasm, and Feld's PR machine, and remember that things were pretty exciting in 1985, '86, '91, '92 or '98 too); then the upcoming season looks REAL good in the 450 class. Apart from Trey Canard sidelined with another injury for the first rounds, we have a pretty heavy line up ready to take on Anaheim.
I'll be there, I want to blog more, I want to post more pics, I want to make this a fun year again.
