Pete Zernik 2015 Wrap Up
We asked longtime Liquid Militia Jetski racing team member Pete Zernik for a wrap up of what went down for him in 2015, here’s what he had to say:
2015 was a great year for me at Zernik Racing. I made it my personal mission to do better than years before and also battle back after having hernia surgery last year. This year on the 4th of July Vanessa and had our 2nd Child together beautiful Liliana Kaylee Zernik. Making a grand total of 3 youngin’s here. The hardest part of racing this past season is the endless weekends away from my family and kids I missed all of them and it’s defiantly hard.
DJSA / Pro Watercross National Tour
I competed in the local NorCal DJSA Series where I ended up 2nd Expert 900 and 1st in GP Ski. I also did the whole Pro Watercross National Tour this year for the 1st time and it was amazing with lots of ups and downs. A big thanks goes out to team Utah aka the Austins for all there help this past year it wouldn’t of happened without them.
Pro Watercoss World Championships
At the Pro Watercoss 1st World Championships in Naples Florida I competed in 3 classes and placed 4th Pro Ski, 7th GP Ski and 1st Vets Ski GP. The tour was amazing with lots of killer race sites.
RPM Nightime Shootout / IJSBA Wold Finals
The RPM SoCal/NorCal Nighttime Shootout was a blast. I ended up 1st in GP ski and can’t wait for more. Lastly after training all year long it was time for the coveted IJSBA World Finals. I’m pleased at my progress over the years and ended up with my best finishes yet, Pro Ski 7th and 2nd Vet ski GP. Pro Ski GP I made the mains and was in the hunt for top 10 and had a boat failure in my main putting me at 16th I believe overall.
It’s a long journey from the beginning to the end of the season. I want to thank everyone who competed. I look forward to some killer motos, races and venues this season.
