Happy March, everyone!
I just got back from Holimont, New York, where the third and final Race to the Cup of the year was held. We arrived late on the 21st and trained the next day. The race was two PGSs on the 23rd and 24th, and I couldn’t be happier with how I did. The first race day was very exciting, as it was beautiful and sunny. After time trials, I qualified for finals in 9th place, which meant I had to race the woman in 8th. I won and advanced to face Ariane Lavigne, the woman who qualified 1st.
