I don’t always travel across the country… but when I do, it is to RACE MY DIRT BIKE!

I made the 13.5 hour trip to Arrington Virginia to race the Drangon’s Back NEPG. The mountain views were beautiful and made the long drive well worth it.

With rain in the forecast, I was unsure how conditions were going to be. Majority of the rain skipped the property so it turned out pretty PRIMO!

Test 1-3 were pretty flowy and fast! These sections did not have a lot of rock either just a lot of logs. I got along pretty well and found a flow fairly quickly. Test 4 got a little rocky but nothing crazy. The transfer between test 4 and test 5 was brutally rocky. We climbed to the top of a mountain and it was a rock garden! At the top, the view was absolutely beautiful. Test 5 was my least favorite. About a mile in, I hit a tree and shot my bike down a steep hill. I lost around 5 minutes right there trying to get it out and going again. My biceps were on FIRE!! It was nuts. Finally, I got some assistance to help me get going again. I am super thankful for that. The rest of the test had a lot of boulders and it was overall more technical.

At the end of the day, Dragon’s Back is still one of my all-time top favorite places to race! The views, terrain, and dirt are amazing! I finished 5th in Women’s Elite.

I also want to say good job the the rest of the Bonecutter Off Road crew who raced it:

Colby Gibson – AA 14th

Scott Boyer – A+45 5th

Jeremy Harris – B 12th
