Anyway, FSC #7 took place at Loyce E Harpe (Carter Road) Park in Lakeland. I was really excited to be going back down there to race. My mom, dad, and I did a charity race in February there and I remember the trail as being fun and the Fingers section as being technical and challenging. I rode it pretty well last time, but I was hoping that I would do really well this time since I've gotten so much more experience riding the harder trails.
The 9-11 year old race turned out to be one of the most exciting of the season so far. Austin led us out on the motorcycle for the first lap.
The Juniors race would also end up being one of the more exciting races, but not for the same reason.
The exciting part of the race happened when Dustin went over his handlebars on the Second Finger during the second lap and broke his wrist. OUCH!! I felt really bad for him when I came down the hill and saw him on the side of the trail. Then I passed his dad who was running to get to him and I figured something happened that was more serious than just getting the wind knocked out of him. Hopefully he will heal fast so he can make it back for the last couple of races.
