See how Lorena Dromundo began competing
Back when Lorena was only 11, she started competing on horses. Explaining to Nick, she says that she jumped horses and raced horses too. As you’ll see, she’s a natural competitor. Next, she realized how much she loved bikes over horses. So after some exploration, she discovered downhill mountain biking. After that, the rest was history!
The name of the game: Crashes and injuries
Lorena mentions to Nick that she has never broken a bone competing. But, she did crash once causing her liver to tear in half. See just how priceless the look on Nick’s face becomes when she says that. Next, she tells Nick that getting knocked un-conscience is almost a weekly event. At the speeds they cruise down the mountains, along bumpy paths, wipe-outs must be very rough indeed. Apparently, the more you crash, the better you get – makes sense.
