“The Shasta Dam Grand Prix went well! My 430 got me off to a great start. I was able to get into the lead and bring it all the way to the finish. The course had all types of riding from tight single track to wide open roads so I had a ton of fun. My team did a great job in the pits as we pitted every lap of the 28 mile loop. I am happy to build some momentum and expand my points lead.”

“Lake Shasta… I had a lot of work cut out for me after a bad start. I put my head down and started charging. I was able to make my way to the front of the pack, but I used a lot of energy and focus getting up there. I made a few mistakes and was sitting 3rd, so I made the decision to settle in there and ride to the finish. I probably could have charged harder, and got into second, but I didn’t wanna push myself into a mistake and risk crashing.”

“I got off to a great start at the Shasta WHS with the holeshot. After leading for a bit I developed a bad case of arm pump and was having a hard time holding on. I was able to shake it off about halfway through the race and catch back up to the leader. With about a half lap to go I made the pass into the lead again and held it to the finish! I’m super excited to get my Beta up on the top step!”
