Jazzmyn Canfield started the week off with a moto win in the Girls (11-16 class). After securing the lead before the close of the first lap Canfield maintained a solid pace and stayed ahead of the crowd. She went on to another win in the second moto on Wednesday. All signs pointed toward a championship for Canfield, but heartbreak struck when bike issues plagued her for most of the final moto. She managed to hold a top three position until she was unable to finish the moto in the final lap.

In Women’s 12+ Canfield had her sights set on frontrunner Hannah Hodges, coming up a close second in the first moto. She battled it out for third place in the subsequent motos, finishing second overall in the very competitive women’s class.

Hunter Cross headed out to Loretta’s fresh out of shoulder surgery only ten days before after breaking his collarbone during training. While his fitness might have struggled from the recent injury, as always Cross brought his strong will to succeed. He got decent starts and pushed through crushing fatigue, earning himself top ten positions in the first two motos. In his third race of the week he started out in front of the pack, running in second and putting in solid lap times toward the finish. But a crash that compromised his shoulder left him in searing pain that night, and the next day Cross and his parents decided that it was time to call it rather than risk further injury.
