First round of the CSRA snowcross was a weekend of ups and downs. Ready and having more practice than ever leading up to the first race I was ready for the light to go green for the first time in pro! Fighting the tough weather conditions and track conditions I went out for practice trying to find lines and get comfortable on the track for the up coming races for the day. Had trouble all weekend with starts and lead me to have to fight through the pack of riders most races all weekend. All throughout I was trying to keep a positive attitude towards the day and my finishes. Sunday I had a good final and dug deep to pull off a 4th in the final and almost taking 3rd! Things to work on but getting through the first weekend was a goal and secondly my finishes where right where I wanted to be for the first round and I can’t wait to build on my results and make it to the podium!

This weekend was something I was pumped about for a while, coming in as a rookie in the pro class I was excited to show what I had. Saturday was a fun day, had too motos and caught hard for a 3rd place in the final, was super happy about it. Sunday came around and was nervous and excited to see how day two would go. Rode hard and fast and ended up with another 3rd in the final. I can’t thank the Bailey Motorsports team enough for their support. Also big thanks to Skidoo, Mystik, Scott goggles, and Troy Lee Designs for having everything dialed in. Ready for Round 3 and 4!

This past weekend was one to remember as it was my first weekend in pro lite and I had manage to pull the hole shots in all my heats and finals and stay out front and pull away from the pack!! having these wins at round one of CSRA was a huge confidence booster for me. the sled couldn’t have performed better, it was pulling hard out of the hole, glen did some tweaking with my suspension to make it perfect, and I was feeling real comfortable on the sled. the track was an icy one as well as being small, but it gave us riders a challenge to see who could get to the checkered flag first!! overall this past weekend was a great way to start the season!!! also wishing mitch king a safe and fast recovery see you out there soon bud!!❤

Had a great weekend racing at the first round of csra snowcross, with really cold temperatures and icy track conditions that made it hard to ride on a snowbike. I was able to finish off 2nd and 1st overall on the weekend, happy on my ridding and looking forward to the next round! Yanick Boucher

I am stoked about how the whole weekend went, it was awesome making front row in the older boys Junior 1 final both days. Felt great starting the season off on the right foot winning my first Jr girls race, bummed about falling off while I was leading my Jr girls race on Sunday but happy that I had enough of a lead to finish the race in 3rd. Bring on round 3&4!

This weekend was very exciting and crazy at the same time! It was my very first time attending Rouyn-Noranda! I didn’t know what to expect at all. It was freezing cold all weekend even my sled didn’t like the cold weather, I had some technical problems with my race sled freezing up and braking, Making everyone working overtime! I just wanna say a big thank you first to everyone that helped get my sled back up and going this past weekend. I think my favorite highlight of the weekend was finishing 2nd in one of my Transition girls heat and 4th in my Transition 8-10 heat! I definitely learned no matter the bumps in the road you keep at it and you can achieve anything with a little hard work
