What Do the Riders Do With a Weekend Off?Wednesday, April 11, 2012 | 10:40 AM
Monster Energy Supercross presents 17 races in 18 weekends, making the Easter Holiday a big one for the racers -- it's the only off-weekend of the SX season! We ran through our contacts and texted a whole bunch of riders to see what they did with their time off. As you'll can see, even the West Lites boys (who have already been off for a few weeks) got to enjoy some good times with family and friends. And for the 450 boys who haven't missed a weekend yet, well, the time must have felt good. Check out the answers below.
For Easter I stayed home after Houston and spent some time with my family at my nana's house.
I went to the beach and hit some dirt jumps with my trainer Randy [Lawrence].
For Easter Weekend I spent time in Texas with the family and friends.
For the Easter weekend I went and spent the Saturday at Steel City for a local race. The Eleven 10 Mods boys and I decided the best way to get back to motocross is to go race a motocross track and see where we are at! I went 1-1 in 250A and 3-1 in 450A. Steel City's uphill start doesn't suit a 250F in the 450 class, haha.

For Easter weekend just went by the coast and hung out for a bit and Easter dinner and stuff. Didn’t hunt any eggs or anything haah.
Went to my chicks parents house for the weekend and went to the beach for brunch. Had a pretty relaxing weekend.
Easter was really good to be able to spend some time with the family. I don’t get to see all of them that much from traveling and riding, so I really enjoyed it.
On the weekend I just got in some well needed supercross laps. It was good to have a week of hard practice and not have to rest for a race on the weekend.
Easter weekend, I’ve been building a jet ski trailer, so I did some welding and grinding on that. That’s about all I did, I’m trying to finish that up before the hot days come this summer!
For Easter weekend my family came out to Cali for my birthday. We went to the beach and hung out.
I’m in Florida so I really didn’t do much for Easter. Me and [Zach] Freeberg went fishing and other than that, man, we just ate some good food.
This weekend I went riding and spent time with family. Saturday Erin and I went out to Elsinore and met Matt Moss, his girlfriend and some friends who are out from Australia, and brought a BBQ, and spent the day riding.

On Easter weekend I did training at home and then I ate with my family. I really liked it.
Well Easter weekend Saturday I went and rode at Cuhiulla Creek with all the mechanics from the MCR shop. Then spent some time with my girlfriend Saturday night. And Easter Sunday Tyler and Danny Villopoto came over and my dad played chef and cooked us a ham up while we just relaxed in the hot tub!
Easter weekend was pretty low key this year…We had some old family friends over for Sunday and had a BBQ. Made my famous carne asada and had some fun in the sun.
I painted my boat and put new carpet in it. Went to Elsinore MX did some fat whips haha and hung out with family!

Easter weekend just relaxed a little, did some swimming and some fishing. I really just enjoyed a weekend off!
I had a great Easter weekend. I took my girlfriend to Disneyland on Saturday. Then Sunday my family and I had a few close friends over for dinner and to just hang out.
It was my girlfriend’s spring break so she flew out and hung out with me and my family. On Saturday we headed up to Durango, Colorado and did some biking around the town and just had a fun day. On Easter Sunday me and a bunch of friends went and filmed some awesome free riding, we ended up finding a couple jumps and I found a big hit -- it was probably between 75 and 85 feet.
Easter weekend went out to dinner with my girlfriend and family on Saturday night. Then Easter Sunday had a big crawfish boil at my house with the whole family. Was super delicious and fun.
I went to Phoenix to spend some time with the family-in-laws. Had a good golfing weekend, and Easter on Sunday with some candy.
I went to the beach with a couple friends and rode beach cruisers around. Missed the family on Easter for the first time but my mom sent me some candy and an Easter basket so it's all good! Haha.

I played golf, and we had a baby shower lol. Yes, we’re expecting!
Over the weekend, I went riding outdoors Saturday and Sunday with Borky. It was badass!

For Easter, I had a golf game with my family then raced RC cars with buddies.
On Friday I flew back to Charlotte [from California] to spend the weekend with Paige’s [GF] family for Easter. I’ll be back here until I fly to New Orleans, then it’s back to California.
For the weekend, I hung out with some friends and shared a few laughs. Then Easter day, I ate all day and enjoyed my family. Felt really nice to be home and have no stress.
