Team PSI rider Julia Krzemien guaranteed her spot in the Regional Championships this past weekend.
Last Saturday at Tomahawk MX in West Virginia was the northeast area qualifier for the Loretta Lynn National Championship in Tennessee and the first race of the 2016 season on the PSI sponsored KTM.
Julia managed to get 3 out of 4 hole shots for the day. In the Women’s 16+ class Julia unfortunately got caught up in a crash, but, she worked her way up to 3rd place in the first moto which gave her a 2nd overall. In the 14 + class Julia’s 3rd and 2nd place finishes were good for a 2nd overall. The second moto of this class was an awesome battle as Julia and another female racer went back and forth the entire race and Julia believes it helped both of them to push each other to the limit.
