In his efforts to push towards the front of the pack, Cole suffered a setback during a collision with a tree, injuring his shoulder and cutting his hand. The frustration of the pain and consequent poor performance left the rookie Pro very unhappy with his day. “ I was trying to make up some time on the second loop, and that’s where it came apart. I was trying to avoid all the little whippers from hitting [my shoulder] and then I’d get off the trail. I struggled lots, but I’m going to work on what I need to and press on. Boise next!!”
Cole will be riding Open A at the Idaho 100, 2 day enduro near Boise, Idaho June 2/3.
Kitimatt, BC’s Ben Rego had much the same type of day near Vernon, BC, at the Squealing Pig Hare Scramble. After getting “ a sick start “, Ben led the Pro class, until a split in the course where he continued on the wrong section of the course. Once he realized his error, he was forced to dnf the event. “ I was in first, didn’t see the A B split and went the wrong way. Not happy.” Not the best for Ben, but his determination will certainly bring him better results at the next race.
