“I am excited to be bringing home another Extreme Enduro win, this time from the Battle of the Goats in North Carolina! I have been practicing hard for this style of racing in preparation for the Tennessee Knock Out, and it looks like the hard work is paying off! I hope to keep the momentum rolling into the National Championship race, and I’m sure my Beta teammate Morgan Tanke and I will make it an exciting battle!”
Bike: 300 RR Race Edition
“Battle of the Goats was gnarly!! The two-lap race around a 17-mile course proved to be one of the most demanding races of the year. The heat and humidity played a huge factor on top of the extremely technical course. I led the first lap but ran into lappers on lap 2 when the course was polished and extra slippery. I began cramping 2/3 the way through and continued pushing through for a 2nd overall. It might be a second, but it feels like a win after struggling back East lately. I spent a few weeks training over there before the event which really helped. My 300 RR worked incredibly in the slick stuff. I am stoked for Tennessee Knockout!”
