Sam was 2nd, 1st and 1st in her mains Sunday (November 28th) on her way to the Grand National title and the overall Girl Pro Title. (I think she is the first non American to win this title).
Big brother Ken was leading the first main in A pro when he fell and hurt his knee and had to settle for the 8th, half of the riders in the A pro main are turning AA in January. Awesome job by Sam and Ken at the worlds biggest BMX race. Sam and Ken's friend and training partner Bubba Harris pulled off one of the greatest comebacks, after falling in his first main he pulled off a couple of firsts and securing himself the ABA overall Pro title.
