Small description as to why you chose to race the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series:
I have raced Sumter for several years as a youth rider for a warm up race. I really liked the format and asked my parents if we could do the entire series. I did 3 races last year until I broke my leg. I also thought it was so cool when Melissa Randt let me ride with her and film for my YouTube channel while I was recovering from my injury. I have recovered and we are chasing the series again in 2019. I like the format and I like that you don’t ride the same trail over and over again like a hare scramble.
Your favorite race so far:
I really liked the Cherokee last year and am looking forward to that race again this year.
Favorite moment on the National Enduro Series:
I was super pumped to get my first B class win at the Alligator a few weeks ago.
Goals for the Season:
My goal is to win the B Open class championship.
