After going one-two for both races of the Mercer Cup last weekend in New Jersey, Luna riders Georgia Gould and Katerina Nash have proven themselves an intimidable force for the remainder of the season. On November 15 and 16 they battled the engorging mud of Mercer County Park after heavy rain and came out on top.
The likes of Wendy Simms, Mo Bruno-Roy and Natasha Elliot never really got a look in as Gould and Nash countered each other to share the series leader's jersey, while Gould took both wins on offer. Gould explained the position the duo found themselves in, and how it worked to the advantage of the team. "Katerina and I want Luna to be on the top of the USGP."
That's not to say personal ambitions don't go totally unchecked, however. "I would prefer it was me and Katerina would prefer that it were her. But the second best thing is to have your team-mate up there. We work really well together but once it's down to just the two of us, we don't cut each other any slack."
