I want to be world champion for the super enduros. Racing at a top pro level locally.
General travelling expenses to get to the races. Endurocross is also physically demanding, if you aren’t in good shape it is very hard to finish these races.
Being well conditioned, riding smooth and “clean”, not making mistakes, being confident in my bike and equipment as well as myself.
My training on bike takes part at the local track here in Calgary Alberta. If we aren’t riding track we are out playing in many areas of the beautiful and challenging Rocky Mountains.
Practicing drills, you can ride laps around your track for days but what it really comes down to is knowing how to ride something that is unfamiliar and knowing how to react in these situations.
We will practice many different techniques on one obstacle, for example practicing the smaller logs and slowly increasing the size of the log.
Trusting the skills of the competition. This is especially stressful when following another rider through a section where there is limited options. If they mess up, I’m hooped. When racing it isn’t the fact that you can or cant do something it is doing just as good when others are on the track at the same time.
Mom, Dad for sure. They have been there since day one and continue to push me to be the best rider I can be. I also have a large fan base of young girls that ride, I constantly get messages from people that say their children are excited to watch my races.
Never die until your dead. This directly relates to endurocross. Sometimes we have a bad race and end up in the back of the pack. But with endurocross you can go from hero to zero in a matter of seconds. So make sure you never give up!
As much as I would love to have a career in the motorcycle industry, I have to focus on finishing high school and pursue post secondary schooling. And, of course, working my butt off to defend my endurocross championship and challenge myself on a world level in super enduro.
