On top of that , even on days when I wasn ’ t thrilled about getting the bike out after work , I far exceeded the minimum time requirement on my practices .
Did riding 10x per month work ? Consistent practice created steady , noticeable improvement which led to better results at events . This year I competed in my first National MotoTrials event ( NATC ) and won the West Coast Clubwoman Championship . I won all 3 days of the Women ’ s Open in the Advanced Class . I moved up a class in my local series ( STRA ) where I took third for the year . Across the NATC MotoTrials nationals , the Youth & Women ’ s Open , local trials , and fun trials , I had 9 wins , 17 podiums , and earned 3 Championships ( AMA and FIM .)
All in all , the experiment was a huge victory , and the extra riding translated to achieving success at events . I ’ m preparing to do it all again and to use the momentum from the end of this year to gain more month-to-month consistency in 2023 .
