After breaking her arm in a provincial race on june 23rd, Eve was back racing last weekend. Despite not being able to ride or train for the last 3 weeks, Eve didn’t want to miss the first round of the Eastern Canadian Pro Women National. Practice went ok but it clearly showed that timing and shape were not up to par. Eve started in around 8th place at the start of the first moto and quickly moved up to 5 on lap 2, and was putting pressure on #114 around mid race forcing her into a mistake to take 4th place, where she stayed up until the checkered flag.
Eve had a bad start in the second race and was around 15 in the first corner. She quickly made a couple of passes and was in a 3 way battle for 5th place. Then her lack of training the last couple of weeks and her weak shoulder forced her into making mistakes and she went down in a corner losing some ground on 5th and 6th place. At that point her arm was killing her and she finished the race in survival mode, but was able to syill make a pass on 6th place rider with 2 lap to go to finish the race in 6th.
At her first ever Pro race, at only 12 years old, Eve’s 4-6 result was good enough for a 4th place overall. Eve was hoping for a top 10, so she is really pumped going into de second round in Ste-Julie july 22.
After Ste-Julie Eve is heading south of the border to participate in the Loretta Lynn’s AMA amateur National in Hurricane Mills Tennessee.
Eve would like to thanks :
