    “I have been working hard on my technique and timing to be more precise, so I am glad it paid off. On such a simple course there wasn’t much to separate anyone other than really committing in the turns and working your body. Caroline is a good competitor and I enjoy the challenge she brings for me to compete at my best to win. On a side note, I hope the tracks will evolve to be a little more technical to showcase everyone’s skills.” – Jill
