He's really enjoying this summer. ....... Schultz won the gold medal in early August at the Adaptive Moto-X event at the ESPN Summer X-Games in Los Angeles. Winning gold never gets old to Schultz who knew he had his work cut out for him at the ESPN games. "I knew I would have some stiff competition so I built a practice track at home." Before the competition in prac- tice at the event "a couple of the other guys looked strong," Schultz said. "I knew I needed a good start and at the first corner I was in sec- ond place." Schultz knew he would have an opportunity somewhere dur- ing the race to make his move, and that's exactly what he did in the fifth lap when "I made my move and made it stick." "Winning in the motocross never gets old. The bumps are so much bigger (than in snowmo- bile racing). To be on the top of the game on a dirt bike is huge." While at the event Schultz got a call from the Kimball Days parade organizers, asking him if he wanted to appear in the parade. "It was kind of funny getting the call at the X-Games. But to come home with the gold in front of family and friends was nice." Schultz is a hesitant celebrity, but he admits "it's kind of neat." a 'monster' of a summer =Monster" Mike Schultz was in the Kimball Days parade Aug. 11, just days after winning yet another gold medal in the XGames.
