A father/daughter go racing...

Well, this weekend is where it all begins. A slow 42yo C rider and a his daughter, an enthusiastic yet inexperienced 13 yo, will race the first HS of the year in the FTR series ( We've been riding together now for 4 years now and both of our riding progression has been fun and steady. Haley had her first race last year ( and I haven't raced in a few years

but we've never raced the same course. My Sun. course will include hers plus a few extra miles, so we'll have plenty to talk about afterwords. We're both excited, and nervous, and if we weren't I'd be really worried

I'll be racing Senior C (40-45 yo) and Haley will be in Mini Girls (9-14 yo). She'll be on the same row as the Mini C boys, so 20-25 other kids on her row will ensure someone is always passing you or ready to be passed.I'm on a KTM 300 and she be riding a CR85R. Maintenance is done, bikes are loaded, so we'll be reporting back in on Monday with many stories, hopefully written with a smile on our faces!
