Report: 

            This past weekend, I got to travel to Three Springs, PA for the GMER Enduro.  Last year, I attended my first GMER enduro and it was something totally different than anything I’ve raced before.  Most of the race course is off-camber which makes gradual braking essential.  It is one of the more technical races on the circuit.  I headed to the race Sunday morning from Penn State, and got everything set up.  Normally, we race 5 sections, but this time we raced 9. 

            My day was a little frustrating as I was hot and cold all day.  From the start, I just felt a little off but I soon found some speed in some sections.  That was followed by mistakes in other sections.  With short sections between 3 and 5 miles, any mistake was the difference between placing well and doing mediocre.  By day’s end, I was able to win the A-200 class and take 12th overall.  I was a lot further off the AA pace this time around, but I’m looking forward to regrouping for next weekend. 

            Next weekend, I will be heading to Speedsville in New York for another ECEA enduro.  I hope to bring home another win and a top ten finish.  Thanks to everyone that has supported me this year!
