Hett Takes the Podium: Desert 100
The Shorai sponsored Cornergrass/Husaberg Team is having a great start to their racing season. Below is the latest release provided by the team. The entire Cornergrass team is equipped with Shorai LFX Batteries.
Wardlow AB: Victoria Hett of Vernon, BC, ventured to Odessa Washington where she challenged the ladies class in an event of over 1500 riders. The Desert 100 began in 1969 and has grown into an event of over 3000 people.
After some testing to adjust her Valley Motosports Husaberg TE 250 to the faster speeds of the desert, Victoria gated in the top 10 out of nearly 800 riders on the line. After working her way through the pack, her luck nearly took a turn for the worse, high siding off of a hidden rock in the silt. After regaining her composure, Victoria pushed herself back into a comfortable pace and took the victory in the Ladies Class. Taking the win by over six half minutes, this victory was redemption after running in 1st place last year and running out of gas less than 10 miles from the finish!
