top 25 overall , with a final moto tally of 24th , as well as being the only female rider to complete the final moto in the time allotted . Gutish earned herself an impressive 32nd overall finish , out of the 115 riders that competed .
“ Moto 1 started off a little rough I felt tight and was making lots of mistakes at the beginning ,” said Forsley . “ Rachel even took off for a bit and I lost touch , I just tried to slow down and keep forward momentum . Luckily , I was able to make a pass and then gain some ground . It seemed close for a while but when I finally got towards the end , I realized I had a decent gap . Moto 2 went much better .
Rachel was on me at the beginning for what seemed to be a while , but I stayed patient and made sure I got through everything and finally I pulled away . I felt really good Moto 2 , things were flowing and I was able to find good lines . I was definitely a little tired going into Moto 3 and knew it was going to be a harder one . But I stuck to my plan of just making sure I rode smart and got through everything . I had a slower pace , but it worked really well . Overall , I was really happy with the day ! “
