These are her impressions about the Boise, Idaho eight round of the Series:

“I liked the track, it was a fast layout, although it had some slow and slippery obstacles, like the trunks and the sand. It’s been a lucky race for me. I started quite well, but Tarah Gieger fell in front of me, making me and other riders avoid her, losing some time. It’s not that easy to make a good start competing with other riders who come from motocross racing!! At the end of first lap I was still running upfront, but then I had a small fall at the woodpile and lost some time. Another mistake at the final lap allowed Pechout to pass me just a few meters away from the chequered flag. In a short three lap race format you can’t cope to have any mistake if you want to win. Pechout managed to avoid the initial pileout and had no major mistakes, and so, she won the race. Another key factor has been the freezing cold Alaska storm that hit the USA those days, making it almost impossible for my body and for my bike to get warm when the race was about to start.

Overall I’m very happy with my second place, I believe we are working in the right direction and being at the podium is always good. However, I’m never satisfied with second places, so next week I will give everything on my own to be at the top spot”.


De vuelta a los Estados Unidos Sandra Gómez competía el pasado fin de semana en Boise, Idaho con su Husky 125 la octava ronda del Campeonato Americano de Endurocross “AMA Geico Endurocross .

“Me ha gustado el circuito, era rápido pero tenia pasos lentos de troncos grandes y patinaba mucho tanto los obstáculos como la arena. Ha sido una carrera loca, he salido bastante bien pero Tarah Giegger se ha caído delante mía y he tenido que esquivar su caída y la de muchas chicas en la segunda curva. ¡¡No es fácil salir bien teniendo una parrilla de pilotos que vienen del motocross!! Aun asi al final de la primera vuelta me he puesto primera. He tenido una caída rápida en una piscina de troncos y en la última vuelta he tenido otro fallo lo que ha hecho que Pechout me pasara a pocos metros de la bandera de cuadros. Solo teníamos tres vueltas lo cual no podíamos permitirnos ningún fallo y Pechout ha tenido una buena salida y no se ha visto implicada en la múltiple caída. Hemos pasado un frío impresionante debemos de estar en mitad de la ola de congelación de Alaska que azota a EEUU. Me ha costado mucho calentar bien y también a la moto.

Pero estoy contenta con mi segundo puesto creo que estamos trabajando bien, estar en el podium siempre es bueno aunque no me conformo y la semana que viene volveré a darlo todo para estar arriba”.
