Elena Myers #21e

You don't see to many scuffed knee pucks in Flat Track but in this case they belong to the first woman to win an AMA Road Race, Elena Myers. Calistoga was her first real entry into upright ,dirt circle racing and she cottoned to it like a hummingbird in a hot house. She backed it in when needed and used her road racing experience and kept the wheels in line when she could and made some incredible speed. Elena looked totally comfortable and fast. I hope her schedule lets her get some more dirt track races under her belt. Elena would be a welcome addition to the sideways circus.
