The motocross racing scene has been a big part of my life but for the past several years it has been about college and life after college. During my college years, I met my husband and we got married then we graduated together and moved to California. Once we moved...
After the Area Qualifier, I wrote down what I needed to work on and adjusted my training and the tracks I would ride on until the Regional Qualifier.
The first change was changing from stock suspension to lighter spring. As I started to go faster over the past few months, the stock suspension was no longer working.
The second change was to practice getting into ruts for turns, straightaways, and jump faces. A lot of the tracks I had been riding are sand tracks and they don't really get rutted. I was able to ride a private track with ruts and crazy acceleration and breaking pumps then I made my way down to Glen Helen for during the week motos. They ripped the track deep and watered a lot, creating some deep ruts. I could take parts of the track, focus on the turns, and get comfortable in the ruts.
The last change was working on acceleration and brake bumps. Testing the suspension to work through the bumps and practicing charging them harder and faster was essential.
After visiting those tracks and and working on those items I will be ready for the regional and Fox Raceway.
