MXGirls Blog, Bye 2009 WMX, Ride for the Cure, Makes MJ Smile
Hello MXGirls Fans!
It’s been awhile since my last article, so I figured I would jump in here and give you some scoop on the important stuff …
Women’s Motocross Rocks!
We all know that the Women’s Motocross season has come to an end, the racing was awesome and extremely competitive. Ashley Fiolek was crowned AMA Women’s Motocross Champion of 2009, Jessica Patterson took second place, and Sherri Cruse locked in third place overall for the season! (You can see their Rider Profiles here.)
I was very impressed with how driven Jessica Patterson was to regain her top position on the circuit. She got stronger as the season went on! And Ashley Fiolek kept her drive up, showing how intense and passionate she is by finishing her last race of the year with a broken collarbone! Those two have a lot of experience …. and I think some of the ‘rookies’ that came into the series had a rude awakening as to how extremely competitive the pro class is, but it also gives them something to shoot for and improve upon and train towards – improving in 2010! Sara Price is a good example – she stayed consistent and I am sure she is going to arrive in 2010 with vengeance for a top 3 Championship finish.
3rd Annual ‘Ride for the Cure’, October 3rd, 2009 in Anza, California.
Super important. An up and coming event I feel is worthy of worldwide exposure! I will be in attendance and I will be doing some laps on my KTM Dirt Scooter! Looking forward to getting out and supporting this event! I do expect to see you there. You can come stop by and get my autograph! Ha-ha-ha Just kidding!
Here are the details on the Ride for the Cure: Rynoland Motocross Facility will be hosting the 3rd Annual Ride for the Cure October 3rd 2009 in Anza, California.

Stuff that makes me smile!
I’ve decided during the women’s motocross downtime I will thrill you with my favorite find on the women’s actions sports product scene, I will try to focus on the companies focused on women like myself … but, just in case I find something super amazing, just want to give you a heads up, I may travel outside the boundaries of women’s motocross. If you have a product you would like to share with me to be featured on my blog, please email me at [email protected]
I have personally been thrilled by the MotoCandy.com Clothing line, so thrilled I am now sporting the MotoCandy Logo Sticker on the back of my ride.
I felt it was necessary to lock down the specs on MotoCandy, so I shot off a couple questions to the creator of MotoCandy, Gina Downey out of San Diego, California, but I got her out of office reply. I think she is on lock down creating the 2010 MotoCandy line, so I wont bug her. Instead I will give you my personal description of a MotoCandy Girl.
Confident. Sexy. Dare Devil. In Control, OK enough from my head, here is what the website says “Girls that are into moto-sports are on the edgy side that’s for sure. But the fact remains that they are GIRLS.”
So, if you have any style-sense, you appreciate good quality, attention grabbing, self labeling clothing and you are a MotoCandy at heart, I would assume that your next purchase is going to be directly from MotoCandy.com. I will also be sporting my MotoCandy wear at the 3rd Annual Ride for the Cure October 3rd 2009 in Anza, California at Rynoland on October 3, 2009. MotoCandy is one of the companies donating to the cause, you better get your bootie out to Rynoland to make a bid on the MotoCandy basket and save some boobies!
Here I am [Michele Johnson] , working from the home office with my MotoCandy Tank on.
And, let’s not forget the recently wrapped up 2009 FIM Women’s World Motocross Championship – the new world motocross champion? Steffi Laier from Germany! You can see her Rider Profile here
