Camp Coker ranks extremely high on my list of favorite places to race and is worth every minute of a 14 hour drive!!
This place has plenty of sand too keep my inner child smiling, dirt, hard pack, and some soft sinky holes. Yes I did find one of those sink holes, haha. I got off to a great start. P3 to the woods and got passed a few miles in. I was feeling good and making smooth, fast passes on the trail traffic. After lap 1, I was only 50 seconds down from 1st. That is the closest I have been to the front of my class after a full lap ever. I was feeling good. Unfortunately, I have taken some time off to heal my foot so my endurance is not quite up to par and I could not maintain that pace. I fell back a few minutes. Last lap, I had to gas and also buried my bike in a field. It took a few fella’s to help me get it out. So I lost some significant amount of time with those two things. It’s a learning process but I am feeling good and confident. I am riding like I know I can and BELIEVING in myself. I finished the day with my best class finish, coming in at 4th. I cannot wait until the next round.
I am thankful for those in my corner helping me on or off the bike. It takes a team!
