Race Report from Sifiso Nhlapo – 17 and 18 May 2014

Good days racing here in New Mexico. I had some solid laps in my heats with 3rd, 2nd, 1st qualifying for 1/4 finals. In my quarterfinal I finished 3rd which transferred me to the semi final. In semis I finished 5th with a crash. I’m happy with the days racing and looking forward to tomorrow. Thank you all my fans and sponsors for the support. Let's turn things around tomorrow.

Sundays racing was filled with highs and lows. Crashing out in the first heat and finishing 6th I knew had to get some good scores in the next two rounds to qualify out of the heats. I ended up getting a 2nd in heat 2 and was coming into qualifying position in the third heat but made some contact with another rider, which left me out if the heats. On the bright side I learnt some lessons this weekend that I will take with to my next race in two weeks in Salt Lake. Thank you to my fans and sponsors for the support. We will keep pushing.
