“The last two runs today were good, and we feel confident going into tomorrow,” said Sampey, who has seven career No. 1 qualifiers at the U.S. Nationals. “We’re going to hold onto this the best we can and we’re certainly capable of winning this race if I can keep my composure. I’m going to give it my all and I just want to win the race.

“But I need to do my job in the first round and that’s where I need to keep my focus. I’m just so comfortable on this bike.”

Sampey will face Ron “The Ray” Tornow on Monday in the first round of eliminations. She is looking to capture her first U.S. Nationals in 20 years.
