I will still be riding my 105 in supermini both side of the border and in the Girls class in the US. But will be riding a brand new 150SX 2012, in the womens and schoolboy classes in Canada. I felt pretty good right of the start on the 150SX and really look forward in racing the other girls in Canada on an equal size machine in the Women A class.
At school break, Simon Taillefer, Jamy Langelier, my dad and myself went for a ‘’BrodeurRacing’’ training camp in North-Carolina. After a couple of days and a couple of inches of rainfall, we decided to pack up and headed to the sunshine state, the beautiful Florida. There were a bunch of our Quebec friends parked at Waldo so we stayed there for a couple of days before slowly making our way back up-north, stopping at a couple of tracks on the way. The main goal of our trip was to spend the last 3 days in West-Virginia for a North-East Loretta Lynn’s qualifier at Tomahawk MX park.
We had just got back to the Hotel on Friday night when rain started pouring and it rained all night. When we woke up we knew it was gonna be a mud bath. They kept postponing the morning practice till the rained cleared up and they started working on the track, cutting four or five section, it made for very shorth lap time. They asked all the classes with less than 8 riders if they wanting to race or just draw their finish position and make it count as a qualified position. Some classes elected not to race (all 50cc, Womens, ‘’A's’’ and Pro sport) but the girls all said they wanted to race. Practice went underway at 1PM and my race around 3PM.
They had combine 4 classes in our race, Girls9-11, Girls 12-15, 65cc open and 85cc open. I got the holeshot and never looked back. I even got to beat Jordan Jarvis, the girl that I considered to be the fastest 9-11 old girl last year in the US. It made me proud. I also raced supermini and was running in 10th before a fall in the last corner put me back to 13th.
I’d like to thank all who made this possible, Duroy Racing, KTM Canada, Motovan.com, OCSuspension, All4oneDesign, Langelier-Lanoue, Forma boots, and my parents.
