Eve was competing in the Girls and the Women class at the Arenacross race at SouthPoint hotel and casino. Friday’s timed practice went perfect with the best time in the Girls and 3rd best in the Women. In the qualifying runs she did 2nd best in the Girls and 5th in the Women.
Sunday morning was race day, Eve got off to a bad start in the Girls heat race and tangled twice with some lappers and ended up finishing 4th. Eve finished 5th in the Women heat race.
It was now time for the Finals. Eve stalled her bike off the gate and started dead last for the 8 laps final in the Girls class. She tangled and went down in the first lap while trying to go aroung some slower riders. By lap 6 she was in 4th , making ground on 2nd and 3rd place when on the last lap they got together and they both went down opening the door for Eve to take the runner up spot on the podium.
The last race of the day was the Women, Eve got a good jump off the gate, and was in 6 after the first lap, by mid race she had made it up to 4th place and was reeling in 3rd place, finishing the race only half a bike length off of the last podium spot.
Eve’s next race will most likely be the first round of the CMRC/AMXQ Provincial championship in Ste-Julie.
