The Rad Dad National Enduro in Tennessee is known for its hard packed and slick conditions. The Friday before the race it poured - getting around 4 inches of rain, so I got my goggles prepped for the mud and was ready to go!
I had a good first test ending up the 5th fastest. Overall the ground was great in the tight woods sections, but the faster open sections were muddy with tons of puddles. I rode horribly in the third and fourth tests and I kept getting stuck in vines, trees, and mud holes. Going into the last two tests I know I had to do some damage control. I rode more consistently for the 5th and 6th sections and ended with the 6th fastest time in both sections. I ended up 8th overall for the day and I’m disappointed in my performance as a whole but it is giving me motivation to work harder next time. I am still 5th in the points however and still on the hunt to move forward.
