This weekend was the Supercross race in New York. I have done this race several times and it is always a favorite of mine. It has so many elements that make it a fun course such as punchy hills, off camber sections, and normally lots of mud. Unfortunately for me it was a dry course this year. I much prefer muddy courses. However, I was thrilled with my start. I have worked really hard on improving my starts, so this was great! The weather was good and not terribly cold like in PanAms the previous weekend. It was cold enough to wear my snuggly warm Pearl Izumi thermal skinsuits. Becca won pies both days so that was great for my sweet tooth.
I am home this entire week and I plan to rest all week before Hendersonville. Hendersonville is also a favorite race of mine as I consider it my home course. I have raced there since I was ten years old and I always have great support from so many of my friends and family in NC! The weather looks like it will be perfect with 100% chance of rain on Saturday to produce some mud! It is hard to believe that we are winding down the US season and headed to Europe so soon! It has been an exciting season so far and I am thrilled to be able to continue racing in Europe thanks to the amazing support I have received this year from the Amy D foundation and all my great sponsors!
