“It was a great day for me at round 3 of the National Enduro Series. I had a good first test putting myself into the lead early. In test two a vine ended up grabbing my bars, which made me crash and lose some time. The times were extremely close all day between me and second place. I knew I had to ride pretty mistake-free in the remaining test, and I knew that if I was able to I would be in the hunt for a win. Going into the last test there was only one-second separating 2nd place and I. The last test I was able to put in a good mistake free ride and claim my first National Enduro win in the Pro 2 class and 6th overall! My Beta 250 RR was running awesome all day and handled like a dream on everything the track had to throw at it. Looking forward to the next race!”

“The National Enduro was located at a National Forrest in Louisiana. The soil couldn’t have shaped up any better and the trail layout was an all time favorite! My first three tests were solid and consistent. A little off from where I wanted. I made some changes and felt better throughout the day. Unfortunately, with three tests to go, I encountered a slight mechanical issue that led me to just ride out the day in one piece. Other than that I felt good and was having fun. We will work on my tight riding skills and be better at the next Enduro!”
