Tayla Jones claims third Sprint Enduro title | News
Husqvarna's Tayla Jones has wrapped up the Kenda Full Gas Sprint Enduro Women's Pro Class title at the penultimate round of the championship Young Harris, Georgia.
Jones missed the previous round due to a hand injury which required surgery but still managed to secure the Women’s Pro title one round early with an overall victory at the Rockcrusher. It marks Jones’ third Full Gas Sprint Enduro title in a row.
“I was kind of nervous coming in. I hadn’t been riding too much because of my fingers, but overall I had a good weekend,” said Jones. “I had a few crashes, but nothing major. My hand held up pretty good. While I’m riding, my fingers don’t hurt, but as soon as I finish is when all the pain hits. So, every time I stopped, it hurt a lot more.”
Second overall in the Women’s Pro class went to MEP MX/KTM’s MacKenzie Tricker, a minute-and-a-half behind Jones, while Maxxis/KTM’s Becca Sheets rounded out the podium in third.
