Welcome to MXGirls.com

MXGirls was created based on the lack of knowledge and news in regards to women’s motorsports 7 years ago. Back in 1999′ the idea of Women Racers getting web and magazine exposure was extremely rare. I felt we (the MXGirls) needed a home base to come together and MXGirls.com was born. Here at MXGirls.com we like to help promote Pro and Amateur riders from around the world. We admire all levels and ages of riders; we appreciate the will to excel, strength to master, and the passion to win.

MXGirls.com is the homebase for Womens Motocross.

Enjoy and Please spread the word!



MXGirls.com Founder: Michele Johnson “MJ”

Welcome to MXGirls.com and my little part-time hobby since 1999. I am from Trabuco Canyon, California (The O.C, lol) and now I reside in Lake Mathews, California which is anywhere from 5-45 minutes to all top tracks in Southern California. I have been riding bikes my whole life, started on ATV’s, Trail 90’s, Quads and I’ve been stuck on 2 wheels for the past 9 years.

I enjoy riding tracks the most, but I definitely head out the Glamis Dunes, Johnson Valley, and Ocotillo Wells to get my desert riding fix a couple times a year.

I race in the Womens Motocross Association several times a year, but now I mostly ride for the love of the sport. I often race local races in the area such as Day in the Dirt, Lake Elsinore Grand Prix, and a handful of the other biggy races.

My favorite part about motocross is the friends I have generated through the year and the most amazing memories to keep me feeling young. I’m a wife of the perfect husband and a mother of a coolest little dude in the world.

For 2006 I’m riding for 3Bros Racing out of Temecula, CA. I have a awesome KTM 250SX which I run my FMF Racing Titanium PowerBomb, which kicked my bike into a super duper high performance level . For gear sponsors I’m running the THOR Racing Gear, Alpinestar Boots, and the THOR/Platinum 1 Painted Helmets.

Over 20,000 fans braved Brisbane’s inclement weather to see world champion, Suzuki’s Chad Reed win the inaugural Super X championship at QSAC tonight.

A tumultuous lead in to the final round saw organisers thrown a number of challenges with the crazy rains and storms that have been reaping havoc across Queensland this week destroying 6,000 tons of dirt that was brought in to build the track on Wednesday.

A further 6,000 tons of dirt was sourced to ensure the events go-ahead and $50,000 worth of tarpaulins were trucked from Sydney to insure the track against further downpours.

While storms continued to threaten all through the day, the skies and weather magically cleared and provided perfect conditions for riders and fans to enjoy the action packed conclusion to Super X.

Reed entered the round as hot favourite, despite his shock absence from last weekend’s Townsville final. The buffer he had built after scoring five dominant round wins in a row was a formidable challenge for his closest rival, CDR Rockstar Yamaha rider Jay Marmont.

Reed was a convincing winner tonight, easily winning all four races in the Quadruple Sprint format and taking home his sixth maximum points haul from seven rounds.

In the battles for second and third local riders Dan Reardon and Jay Marmont fought intense battles with the undisputed ‘King of Supercross’ Jeremy McGrath across the four races the three riders provided some of the closest most action packed racing of the night as they battled for the minor placings on the podium.

After finishing second in three of the four races, Reardon claimed second with Marmont third, the CDR Rockstar Yamaha rider also claiming second overall in the championship.

Reed, who attracted a frenzy of fans from all areas of the state, said he had enjoyed the challenge from local riders who were constantly pushing him to new heights.

“There is nothing like the experience of actually getting out there and racing against strong competition to prepare you for the season ahead. The tracks were on par with anything I’ve raced on in the US as well. It’s been a very successful campaign and I’m glad to have started my relationship with Suzuki with a championship win on the RM-Z450. I have gained an advantage in that I’ve developed some strong race fitness. It’s certainly going to help in the next few weeks as I undergo the last month of training ahead of Anaheim” he said.

A consistent podium placer and the only rider to beat Reed to the top step of the dais, Marmont said he was very happy with the final result and was already looking forward to next season.

“I have to say I really have had the dream season, a national motocross title, a win against the World Supercross champion and second in the inaugural Super X Championship. This will be hard to top, I am going to have to work really hard in the lead up to next year’s racing seasons and I have already set myself some huge goals for next year.” Marmont said.

The battle for third place was just as intense, with CDR Rockstar Yamaha Cheyne Boyd eventually claiming the final championship podium by a margin of only three points.

With Matt Moss wrapping up the Lites class title a round early, all eyes were on the battle for second and third in Brisbane. Moss and Luke George both failed to finish the fifteen lap final leaving KTM factory riders Ryan Marmont and Tye Simmonds to fight it out for round honours and the final two spots on the championship podium.

Marmont won the round with Simmonds second and US rider Chris Gosselaar rounding out the podium but in terms of the championship it was Simmonds who finished ahead of his teammate.

In its inaugural year Super X has had an accumulative TV audience of three million people with live crowds of almost 100,000. This is more than double any other Supercross series in Australia. The championship will be back bigger and better than ever in 2009 with venues to be confirmed over the next two months including one round in New Zealand, which secures the first step in making Super X a truly Australasian series.

Global Action Sports Managing Director Mike Porra said the series had superseded even his own expectations.

“Super X has burst on to the Australian sporting scene in a spectacular way with phenomenal results across the board. The reaction from television, fans and industry has been extremely positive particularly on the new race formats. They have allowed us to bring great racing to a mainstream audience showcasing the skill, speed and courage of these awesome athletes.” Porra explained.

Organisers will now turn their attention to planning for the 2009 Super X season.

Its always an exciting day here at the Supercross.com headquarters ; )




Today I got something in the mail that made me smile, and I’d love to share it with all of you.




Little Brian W. sent me some Track designs and asked if we would consider using them in Supercross this year. Unfortunately we do not have anything to do with creating tracks for Supercross, but we can share them with the world ; )




Great job Brian! And keep up the great work! You are very talented and I am sure if you work hard at it, you will be designing tracks for supercross in no time! Dream Big!




Thank you for sharing your ideas and art-work with us!

Katherine Prumm pre injury interview, Josh Coppins interview, Katherine Prumm injury update

Our friend ANDREW LEIATAUA the BREAKFAST HOST on MORE FM TAUPO 93.5 in New Zealand conducted these two audio interviews with New Zealand motocross legends Katherine Prumm and Josh Coppins, before the big international motocross event in New Zealand.

Unfortunately, as you might know, Katherine fell in a practice crash, and was injured. The text below should give you a bit of an update on Katherine.

Katherine is 20 years old, and one of the top women motocross riders in the world. She was seriously injured while practicing in West Auckland. She missed a jump, crashed hard, and then the bike pummeled her in the back. She fractured 4 vertebrae, and ligaments were damaged. Katherine suffered temporary loss of feeling in her lower limbs for some time immediately after the crash. She eventually was taken to North Shore Hospital.



She underwent a surgery that was 7 hours, and doctors fused together the broken and unstable vertebrae to stable ones above and below.



Katherine says “Somebody was watching over me, I was really lucky, not to be paralysed and I am looking forward to getting fit and strong and to being back where I want to be. I am also very grateful to have had two such fantastic surgeons. I couldn’t move my legs for about a minute, it was the most terrifying thing to go through. I never, ever want to be in a wheelchair and that was just running through my mind over and over. I was a bit out of it at the time but my friend said that I was screaming and screaming. When the ambulance did finally arrive, it took another 15 minutes to get me out of the track because they can’t go over bumps with a spinal injury, so that was pretty terrifying. They didn’t want to rush so it was another hour to get me to the hospital. It would be the scariest thing I’ve ever gone through and it’s the worst pain I’ve ever had. I’m still flat on my back and I’ll be fitted with a brace to wear for the next three months.”



The good news – it appears as if she has feeling throughout her body, and is not paralysed.



Erich (Katherine’s father) said “Kath said she knew she was in big trouble from the moment she took off from the jump. She landed face first and a result of the high impact is that the brain swells. That causes agitation which could dislodge a blood clot so Kath was heavily sedated. It is way too early to make any prognosis but it is a great relief to find that she has full feeling and use of her legs. She will be fitted with a custom fitted body cast to give her both internal and external stability. Kath is expected to be in the brace for a minimum of 3 months, followed by approximately 3 months of rehab.”

Thanks Andrew, Russ, and feel better Katherine!

 

 


Australasian Supercross Series Round 6 – Marmont, McCoy, Reed, McGrath!

Australasian Supercross Series Round 6 – Marmont, McCoy, Reed, McGrath!

Australasian Supercross Series, Round 6 – November 22 – Townsville

Round 6 of the Australasian Supercross Series had some unique happenings … the first being the weather, which was ‘rain’, and made the track a bit slippery for everyone. The second was that the winner was not Chad Reed, but Jay Marmont! The third was that the greatest supercross rider in the history of the sport made a trip from his home in southern California all the way to Australia to compete … and that would be Jeremy McGrath!

The series is also unique in that different race formats are used frequently for various events – something very new to the sport of supercross. (Watching the video below will give you an insight into that.) The big winner in the 450 class on the night – Jay Marmont on his number 2 Yamaha took home the Gold, followed by Daniel McCoy with Silver, Chad Reed with Bronze, and Jeremy McGrath fourth.

Matt Moss clinched the Lites championship, with one round remaining (Brisbane) with his second place tonight. The winner was Tye Simmonds.
