MXGirls Blog: Vicki Golden, A Day in the Dirt, Ross Maeda Benefit Ride Day, April Zastrow
First, we went to Pala Raceway to meet with Vicki Golden for an MXGirls feature video! Supercross.com’s Ace Photographer & Video Man Gerald Geronimo captured a great interview with Vicki Golden, the 2009 AMA Women’s Motocross Rookie of the Year! Check out Vicki Golden’s video interview.
I didn’t make it out to the 2009 A Day in the Dirt, but my fellow MXGirl and race correspondent did! Bridget Hall is one of my favorite weekend warrior – dedicated to the sport of motocross! She has been on fire participating in all the local events!
I reached out to Bridget for her MXGirls feedback on how her race went out at LACR (Los Angeles County Raceway) for the 2009 A Day in the Dirt event held over Thanksgiving weekend in Palmdale, California. Once again there was a healthy showing of girls out there racing the Women’s GP on Saturday morning. Some of the well known names in attendance were Tarah Geiger, Heather Kelley, and Sayaka Kaneshiro. Tarah Geiger clenched the win in the Women’s Pro Class, with Kaneshiro finishing second. Bridget ended up finishing third in the Women’s Intermediate class and had a great time as usual! I look forward to attending 2010!

As many of you know, Enzo Suspension’s Ross Maeda suffered a debilitating crash in September at Starwest MX Park which left him with a broken back. With the help of Enzo Racing, TransWorld Motocross Magazine and Perris Raceway, the motocross community came out on December 6th to have a ride day and show support for ‘Rossi’. Many vendors donated great prizes to the raffle & auction and the ride day was packed! The moto community is such a fantastic one; it’s amazing how many people came together to show their support! Many of the pros were in attendance as well, such as Jeremy McGrath, Mike Sleeter, Brett Metcalfe and Brian Deegan (to name just a few). It was a HUGE success and everyone wishes Ross the best of luck in his recovery. Please follow his journey at www.rossiproject.com
