Across the country, round one of the National Enduro series was getting kicked off. The season opener was held in Wedgefield, SC which was the same location as the East coast Hare Scramble. The event was used as a warm up for many of the factory teams so the Pro class was stacked. NEPG regular Drew Higgins made his Beta race debut finishing solid 14th position. Higgins teammate and GNCC racer Nick Davis used the event as a warm up finishing 20th.
"My day started out really good, got to a good start in the first test and ended up 8th. Test 2 and 3 were good, made minimal mistakes and tried to just maintain my speed throughout the test. I felt like my bike was working awesome all day, besides some mistakes in test 4 that caused me some time. I hit a tree that was bent over and it ripped me off my bike, after I got going I crashed again trying to get back in my groove. I road as hard a could for test 5 and 6, but my pace was a little off of what I should be. All in all I was really happy with my fitness and my bike, I just need to limit the mistakes that I make, and ride smoother. I'm looking forward to building off this result, and going up from here in my finishes." Higgins explains.
