Trail Jesters KTM Racing - The Hoosier GNCC Race Report
The Trail Jester KTM Racing team headed to Crawfordsville, IN for round 6 of the 2022 GNCC season. After lots of rain leading up to this event, track conditions turned out to be nearly perfect as the team set off to race on Sunday.
Korie Steede: “I kept my cool and rode smart all day and made another last lap pass for the win!”
In the WXC class, Korie Steede found herself in a 4 way battle for the number one position throughout the first half of the race, finding herself sitting 4th as the 2 lap to go board came out. Steede put the hammer down, laying out the fastest lap of the day and moving her way up to a last lap pass for the lead. As the checkered flag waved Korie Steede took the WXC win. Taylor Johnston also took on the WXC class this past weekend, putting in a consistent day of racing and finishing her day 12th in class.
In the afternoon race, Simon Johnson and Jesse Ansley took on the XC2 class. Johnson found himself in a grove early on in the race as he bounced just outside the top five in class. As the race carried on he stayed in the mix of battles and finished his day 9th in class. Ansley checked in 15th place in class at the end of the opening lap but grinded the entire 3 hour race working his way up to 12th in XC2. Unfortunately Mason Semmens had to sit out this weekend with a foot injury.
Lining up in YXC1 was Trail Jesters Next Gen racer Van Gosselin, who spent the first half of his race in a bar to bar battle until he made the pass for 3rd. Gosselin settled into that 3rd place position and held it down until the checkered flag waved. Unfortunately Jiggs Fustini sat out this past weekend due to a broken wrist.
