Natalie Kane at The Sandy Årsunda

A great weekend for Natalie Kane despite the less-than-great weather at Årsunda Motocross track in Sweden for the MXSM Swedish Championship.

Natalie races with EBC CX Extreme™ Motocross Rotors and MXS Series Moto-X Race Pads.

After a two-week break recovering from a herniated disc, Natalie Kane was back for the 4th round of the MXSM Swedish National Championship held at The Sandy Årsunda Motocross track. The weather has been extremely hot in Sweden recently, leaving some tracks in bad condition if they’re even open. After having no rain for months however, the weekend event was accompanied by thunderstorms, creating some difficult conditions.

Natalie got some good laps in qualifying and was feeling pretty good. She posted the fastest lap for pole position and the track was holding up pretty well against the rain.

Natalie didn’t get off to the best start in the first race, starting around 18th place, but she charged hard to make it to the front. After 10 minutes she had a nice gap between herself and 2nd place. Controlling the race from there, Natalie happily took the win.

The track was feeling pretty destroyed for the second race, becoming very rutted and technical – which Natalie enjoys – but she still needed a good start. She got 4th out of the gate and quickly into 2nd, but this time she had a battle with the Norwegian Thea Johansson for a few laps before finding the right spot. After making a pass she wanted to charge for the whole race and in the end won by almost a minute.

Natalie was pleased with her performance and to open up her points lead in the championship. She now has the Pro Women’s UK National and another Swedish National to come this month, which she says she’ll continue to work hard for.
