Small description as to why you chose to race the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series: This year we decided to do National Enduros to broaden my ability and bike skills. This is my first full year, and I’m having a blast.
Your favorite race so far: My absolute favorite place would have to be Sumter. Sumter was my first ever national enduro, and I’ve raced it a total of 3 times. With the property being sandy and not super tight it fits my style fairly well.
Favorite moment on the National Enduro Series: By far my favorite would have to be at the Rattlesnake this year (2018) when I found out I scored my personal best finish with a 9th overall in test 4. Nothing beats the satisfaction of doing good.
Goals for the Season: The end goal would definitely be a national championship, but we are just taking it race by race. Individually, I would love to keep breaking the Top 10 every round. I’ve done it once, now I just need to figure out how to repeat it!
