Long time no motocross team report! Find out what etnies Girl team riders Sarah Whitmore and Tarah Gieger have been up to over the past month, in their own words…

On January 4, Sarah Whitmore left her home in Northern Michigan and traveled to California. Here’s what she said she has been up to since:
“First off, it is cold back home and I’m not able to ride. I normally go to Georgia in the winter to train, but since I am riding for Richardson’s RV this year I came here to support the male riders on our team who are riding the West Coast Supercross races. Besides going to all of the Supercross events to watch my team ride, I am busy riding every day—all I do is ride, train and eat. I have done some photo shoots with some lifestyle magazines and sponsors but the highlight of my month was when the MTV “True Life” episode aired with me on it. I actually didn’t want to see it because I knew I would look stupid (and I did) but everyone else seemed to like it and it was good for the sport in general to be on a mainstream channel like MTV. I’m just bummed they showed me crying like a baby on national TV. I am going to be out here for almost another month before I head back east to the Indy trade show. Hopefully I’ll be faster by then.”
Here’s what Tarah Gieger had to say about how she has been spending her time:
“Lately I have been doing more of the same. I have been out in California this past month going to the Supercross races for my sponsors: shaking hands, taking pictures and kissing babies while yeah, guying it all day. I flew back to Florida a couple of weeks ago to go to Surf Expo and see my mom. We also adopted a new dog while we were there. Other than that, I have just been surfing while I am in California. Last week I went on a little road trip up to San Francisco for the Supercross up there. My friend and I drove up the coast, stopping along the way to surf.”
That’s it for this month! Stay tuned for regular motocross team reports.
