Race Report: Taylor Libman


Name: Taylor Libman
Grade: 10
City: Mercer Island
Team: Mercer Island Composite

My goals going into this race were to have fun racing and to make it onto the podium. I met both of my goals, however, it wasn’t my best race. I crashed pretty badly in the middle and didn’t pace correctly. At least it motivates me to do better next race. I really liked the straightaways and uphills best because it was nice to go fast and be able to pass people. The steep downhills and middle section with turns were difficult at race pace. At the finish line, I felt energized and wished there was one more lap. Didn’t pace correctly and wished I had put it all out there! After the race, I enjoyed helping out with the awards ceremony along with other members of the student council.
