That was EPIC. Red Bull 2017 complete.
Started in 6th finished in 13th/173, 1 second slower than my seeding run but I had 3 epic crashes today so I was going way faster in the race. Got a cracking start, about 6th for first 1/4 of race until somebody caused me to crash heavily twice, OTB down the A line and then into a tree avoiding another crash which lost me so many places. Fought hard the remainder of the race to regain some places, having some right good elbow bashing battles BUT it was amazing. Disappointed my fitness let me down on the flat sections and finish line and knowing I could have easily finished higher minus crashes but thats the nature of the beast, racing at the top end, fast and furious with some amazingly fast pro riders. So proud of Christina Stone for nailing her 1st ever mass start event and proud of my result, riding as hard as I could in conditions i normally avoid and considering I don't ride that much lol. #rachelatherton #redbullfoxhunt #redbull #friends #goodlaugh #sonervous #proud
