My 2014 Race Season Review

Friday, December 26, 2014

My goal for 2014 is to earn a custom number plate for being the top rider in my age group.

It's been a while since I've been at the track, so I guess now would be a good time to do a review on my 2014 season. Upon reflection, I think I did pretty good in balancing work, training and racing this past summer. Although I wish I spent more time at practice and doing local races, I just wasn't left with any free time with everything else going on. This season has definitely been more stressful, with personal hurdles and emotions getting in the way, I remember finding myself crying a lot or being a lot more angry when I didn't do well.

When speaking of provincial races, I improved significantly from the season before, finishing in mostly 2nd place and not too far behind from the first place winner. As for Nationals, competing against American riders continued to be a bigger challenge.

This was the first year that I got to compete on a bike designed for racing. The weight loss, proper training and proper bike, contributed in me improving overall. I completed my 2014 goal when I earned a #1 number plate for being the top rider in my age group (21-25).

The Bent Not Broken Team and I have parted ways, so 2015 will be the year that I will be racing solely for my company, Magnolia BMX. For 2015, my goal is to defend my #1 plate in the 26-30 age group, compete in cruiser at the local races, and complete on the new Pan Am track in Etobicoke.
