Finishing credible 4th Overall in EMX Women at Vasoul in the weekend, racing Round 3 in 2 days time, Lynn takes all learning curves to improve her racing against peers as opportunity plus.

# 172: ‘Yes overall it was a good weekend in France finishing 4th in both races. The starts were not good so that’s what I have to work on for the next races’.

Already keen and on top of tight schedule with 4 back-to-back race weekends on the go, Lynn manages it all with high spirited enthusiasm- certainly a great combo.

#172: ‘Yes these weeks are very busy. Every week I try to do as much as possible gym/ swimming/ cycling. Riding this week and next week is not possible. We are coming home on Monday, school on Tuesday and leaving Thursday for the next Round’.

Taken in context on what Lynn gains from race-time- 5 additional EMX Women Rounds slotted in between 5 WMX Rounds doubles experience to maintain self-confidence not only on the track but training in gap weeks.

#172: ‘It helps me a lot to race with the girls on this level. Italy and France were both hard-pack and on these tracks I still need to learn a lot. That’s also why I ride the EMX Woman Series to learn and improve myself’.

Feeling motivated to gain momentum from each race meet, Lynn focuses on positives, aiming high to improve her points standings in both Women MX Championship Series.

EMX Women 3rd Overall and WMX Championship 6th Overall with Round 2, MXGP of Portugal, May 19th.

#172: ‘Yes I definitely feel really good for Portugal. I’m very excited to ride there again. After Portugal I have 2 more EMX races before round 3 of WMX’.
