Bike: Beta 430 RR Race Edition

“I started the race out Sunday morning pre-running the bomb start. I found a line I felt good with, and the rest was up to the bike. My Beta 430 fired up like a champ. I held it pinned and ended up with a hole shot. Led for the first 35 miles and lost two positions. Had some great battles over a very difficult 80 miles. I was able to ride to the finish in 3rd place!”

Bike: Beta 250 RR Race Edition

“I was super happy to get my Beta 250 RR on the podium at the first round of NHHA! I got off to a good start and knew it was going to be a very fast open first loop. At about mile 15 I started having a small bike issue that set me back. After a quick pit stop I set out onto the second loop in 4th. Knowing that the second loop would be more technical I pushed hard to make up the time I lost and catch the leaders. I was able to make some passes and finish out the day strong in 2nd!”

“I had a good weekend out at the first round of National Hare & Hound. I’ve been doing everything I can to improve myself on the bike and it’s showing just not quite in the results. I can’t thank everyone enough for supporting me. Once we have everything working as one, it’s game on!”

“We had a great first round of National Hare & Hound this weekend! I got off to a really slow start on the bomb run, but I made passes quickly and got up to 3rd in Pro 2 by the end of the first lap which was a very fun and fast loop. The second loop offered a much different set of challenges as it was quite technical and slow, but I made up a lot of time here passing into second place. My fitness felt good and towards the end of the race I caught up to the leader but unfortunately was never able to make a pass. Overall, I’m happy to come away from the first round healthy and with good points.”
