Coming off back of 2 week gap where Archer puts pedal to the metal cycling, training, focusing on making adjustment to race new 2020 YZ250F bike, NZ’s first-ever woman International cross-country racer has plenty in store for the final 2 WXC Rounds.

#650: ‘Mason Dixon was super dusty, having had hardly any rain for a few weeks the track was like baby powder with lots of tree roots thrown in the mix’.

‘Just having moved onto the 250f model I have had to change my suspension setting which I’m still currently working on and that didn’t really help me in the weekend race’.

‘Unfortunately we made a mistake with the calculations and the bike wasn’t handling good at all in the rough conditions. We have moved on from that now and I’m looking forward to the next 2 rounds to prove I can ride this bike!’

With America’s inaugural Grand National Cross-Country Series moving into Final Rounds, Rachael sure will embrace next venue which takes place at Summit Bechtel Reserve, West Virginia. Not short of acreage to mark out track, this new venue hosts 14,000 acres of reserve with mix of black topsoil covering some rocky terrain- just can’t wait to see what Rach delivers on race-day!
