Racing under AmPro Yamaha Racing, Rachael has fulfilled her own expectations to ride, train, race to the best of her potential given the opportunity to compete in WXC has been hard won for a teenager who grew up riding Cross-Country on family’s farm in South Waikato, NZ.

What is so inspiring is Rachael’s sheer conviction of making it happen no matter what disruptions, changes to schedule, challenges that have occurred this year. Not least keeping oh-so-tight focus on goals when she had to return to NZ after COVID outbreak, then return to USA and race within couple of days of arrival.

That just sums up what Rach is made of- enduring spirit to better herself, on and off track, while remaining grateful for being able to do what she loves- race!

Rachael: ‘I was dead last off the line and rode as hard as I could to catch up and was in the lead by lap 1. I didn’t look back and pulled away!

‘I’m feeling confident and strong. I’ve worked out how to get my head in the right space and remain calm, minimizing mistakes and riding smooth’.

WXC Championship points are: Becca Sheets 276, Rachael Archer 234 and Tayla Jones 186. WXC Round 11 Mason-Dixie October 10-11th.
