The most highly regarded amateur national in the world, the Loretta Lynn Amateur National, has come and gone in the blink of an eye! During this time, many factors came into play. A major factor was the weather. The heat and humidity left riders exhausted and the rainfall made for muddy conditions which left the track even rougher when it dried out. This race placed a great deal of pressure on the athletes and with the competition so heavy, any small mistake cost championships. To be victorious, the athletes had to ride smart and be consistent.
The Leatt amateur athletes showed their endurance, speed, consistency and the ability to win but also proved that even the best riders can make mistakes. Overall, the team produced exceptional results with 20 top 10 overall finishes. In particular Garrett Marchbanks and Casey Cochran who claimed the championship titles in their classes. We are very proud of our #LeattFamily.
