Despite the fact that the electronic scoring at Bump 'n' Grind was all messed up and we didn't get to see any results on Saturday, my dad and I thought we did really well. We woke up Sunday morning excited to do our favorite event, the Cross-Country. I was super excited too because this is the first time I would be racing head-to-head with the 15-18 year old Cat 2 Juniors. After comparing my times with the guys at the SERC, I was feeling pretty confident that I would be able to hold my own, even though I was the youngest competitor at the event.

When I got far enough ahead that I didn't see him, I tried to use what I learned from all the races I've done and just settle in, ride my race, and protect the lead and my bike. I was so excited with the win that I did a silly sprint to the finish. It was awesome!! Even better, I walked away with $80 in prize money. Carter ended up placing second and he went home with a check as well.
