The season started very well for Helen in the USA with a win in this season’s opening cross, Nittany Lions. Helen took the lead on the first corner and extended her lead throughout the race. Joyce Vandenbeken provided strong competition in the opening laps and she continued to pull away from the local riders to take 2nd place.

“It’s always great to start the season with a win so I’m really happy. I came here wanting to win for Kona in their own country and I did just that.” said Helen after the race. “The course was great, the guys have put so much effort into the events over the weekend at a great venue with all the best facilities. With the live stream too they really are being progressive with their events here.”

Tomorrow Helen will be taking part in an event on the same course where she hopes to make it 2 out of 2 for the start of the season.

“Bring on tomorrow!”
