Vernon, New Jersey (May 21, 2012) – DRD Intense’s Lauren Daney captured her professional win of the season this past weekend at the Eastern States Cup ‘Spring Classic’ at Mountain Creek Bike Park in Vernon, New Jersey. The newly designed racecourse provided racers with long, fast & challenging terrain to test any competitor. Lauren’s victory would be hard earned, as she took things to the limit, and just a bit beyond!
“It was a rough, but great weekend for me,” said a battered, but ecstatic Lauren Daney. “I was still getting accustomed to my bike, and getting it set up for my riding style, then I took a big spill in practice. I was a pretty sore, so I wanted to save myself for race day.”
A beaten Lauren Daney managed to start her seeding run in order to make finals on Sunday.
“All I wanted to do was make it down the hill,” said Lauren. “I kept things smooth, but fast & didn’t take too many risks. This seemed to be the winning ticket to take today’s win! I’m pumped!”
With her victory, Lauren takes over the 2012 Pro GRT series points lead. Lauren now heads to Plattekill Bike Park in Plattekill, NY for the 2nd round of the Eastern States Cup on May 27.
