Small description as to why you chose to race the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series: This is my first year doing NEPG series all the way through. This race starts in my home town of Sumter and for the last few years I’ve enjoyed racing the Enduro more than the Harescramble. I guess coming from the Junior class all these years racing Harescrambles, It is fun to race a section of woods not knowing what lies ahead in the track.
Your favorite race so far: This season so far, Sumter has been my favorite race. It is my home town race and the woods are always fun to ride. I’ve grown up riding in these woods and my family and friends always come to watch.
Favorite moment on the National Enduro Series: Just getting the win after the race. I always give 110% and when I don’t get a good time in a section, I feel like I’ve let myself down. Coming out on top are the best moments.
Goals for the Season: To win the Overall B class would be the greatest. Coming from C class last year and to win the B 200 class would be an achievement that I mainly have set out to do. I just want to get better and win races in the end. I raced GNCCs last year and held on to the 1st place in C class until the end when I broke my foot during football practice and I missed the last 4 races. This year I’m only doing the GNCC races that are on the SETRA schedule. I plan on going all the way with the National Enduros and hopefully coming out on top.
