Bex Baraona

Once we signed Bex in 2018, she was coming off a high ten season as a privateer. She had self-funded her season with a combination of fundraisers, odd jobs, and true grit. She was her personal nutritionist, coach, mechanic, and crew supervisor. We admired her willpower, and we had been elated to supply a place on our manufacturing facility crew. That first season, she cinched her first podium. Over the subsequent three years, she stored working at her targets with that very same willpower that originally drew us to her. It was unbelievable to see her win an EWS in her hometown.

Alongside the way in which, we loved her superb humor (and snigger). We’ll miss working with Bex however want the very best for her going ahead. Gowaaan Lady!
