Small description as to why you chose to race the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series:
National Enduro are Great events with very consistent courses and scoring. I love going to different places to ride and to push myself to be a better rider. I find some really great folks at the events and have made several new friends at each event. These events have people go out of their way to help you and if crash or break down.  Many of the riders will stop and make sure you are okay.

Your favorite race so far:
Cherokee, it had very good trails and super weather, really made this one the best event so far in 2018!

Favorite moment on the National Enduro Series: 
Finishing the Virginia Dragons Back National Enduro after the total mud event of Lynnville, OH. I really had to dig deep for those events!

Goals for the Season: 
This is my first year in the A class, even being “old,” there are still many fast riders out there! I am still looking for a W in the A class and I hope to see one soon! The main point of racing the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series is to enjoy the rides.
