Here is the description of the award I won this year! “Tommy Aquino Spirit Award” will be granted to an AMA Pro Road Racing rider who best embodies the spirit of the paddock during the 2014 season. The paddock will vote for the rider who exemplifies qualities mirroring those of Tommy including passion for the sport, fan engagement and team interaction. The award will be presented on behalf of Cortech and SHOEI at the conclusion of the 2014 AMA Pro Road Racing season.

I can not believe the whole paddock voted and I won this amazing award! I have to give a huge THANK YOU too Cortech and SHOEI for having this award this year! Carrie and Michael Aquino for being present to present the award. Also would like to thank my MOM and DAD. I obviously didn’t become the person I am on my own. I had some pretty amazing parents guiding me.

I had a pretty amazing first full season with AMA Pro Road Racing. There were lots of learning experiences that will defiantly help me in the future!
