The Cone Girls
The Cone Girls
Julia and Kayla
Julia and Kayla have been racing dirt bikes since they were four years old all over the state of Florida. They race the series that is called Florida Trail Riders. The race is called a hare scramble. It is basically an hour and a half race through the toughest terrain and conditions Florida has to offer. This sport requires stamina, courage, strength and confidence; something the Cone girls are all about. After winning the girls championship both Julia and Kayla have chosen to race in the more elevated boys classes seeking harder competition. They are currently both contenders for the championship in their new divisions. This sport is a great family sport, where we have had the opportunity to meet and make great friends from all over the state. This sport has taught us that “Hard work pays off”.
