After the juniors race, the boys chose to participate in the Men's Cat 5 race to get more practice on the course. They significantly improved their dismount and remount skills. Both of them completed the race and looked great!
The course was reversed for day 2. Some new barriers were added, making this course far more challenging than the previous day. The junior boys had some tough competition with the addition of 4 racers all over 14. The field for the girls remained the same as the previous day. Liam and Barrett looked strong on course, finishing 5th and 6th respectively, just behind the teenagers. Emma crashed on the first lap to find herself dead last. She battled all the way back to 1st to take the win! All 3 kids showed an amazing amount of grit and determination on this tough course. They all chose to race again in the Men's Cat 5 and Women's Cat 4. These kids are an inspiration!
