With my first two races of the season done all I want to do is ride and race my bike. The latest race at 360 Park was a blast! My goal going into it was to start strong and have fun! Thankfully, I met both of my goals. Although the weather was a little crazy and cold, the energy and positive vibes from everyone was awesome! Lining up at the start is always nerve wracking, but getting to chat with the other girls and knowing they are just as nervous as me is a little more comforting. I love crossing the finish line because at that point I’ve left all my energy on the trail but at the same time I’m on a riders high! It’s a wonderful feeling I only get when I’m riding.
