Congratulation for Audrey for 3rd place at the Winter National in Surprise, Arizona.
Coming into the Winter Nationals was probably more exciting than any other national because I was able to race down the 3 story SX hill and SX first straight. It is a lot more fun than racing down a regular ABA national starting hill. That was my first time actually getting to race on the big SX hill and doing as good as I did, I was proud of myself. Even though I hurt my ankle on the first day of racing, I did not stop. I got it wrapped and kept riding like nothing was wrong and placed a 4th on Saturday. Sunday came along, and my ankle was a little sore but I was so determined to get on top of the podium. Third round I hurt my ankle even worse, but knowing I was qualified for the main there was not one thing stopping me from racing it. My mom didn’t want me racing the main event, but I did anyways. I went down to the paramedics and got my ankle wrapped a bit more, and I was off to the main event race. I got on top of the podium like I wanted, right behind Brooke Crain and Dani George. Perseverance is the key to success!!
Here are some pictures from the race.
