No matter how many events and venues Alexa Efraimson competes in, the thrill of stepping up to the starting line never fades.
"It's one of the reasons I love racing," said the 16-year-old from Camas. "I just get that feeling of excitement, and I know I'm ready to race."
When she crosses the finish line, the thrill comes right back. It could be finishing in first place, attaining a new personal best time or just gaining points for her team. Efraimson relishes it all. She uses each race as a stepping stone toward the next big challenge.
"I think back to all the training I've done," Efraimson said. "All of it was worth it for that one moment."
