Kaur said the participation in the race was tough for a first time rider like as the race was organised by the company and they check every micro security point of the participants. “The competition was indeed very tough and before the race we get time to practice on the track which is totally different from here. Here I practice on bumpy dirt tracks and in Goa the ground as filled with dry grass where we slipped. But during practice session I learned to control and that helps in my race. I am happy to get second position in my first ever National competition,” said Kaur.
