Tarah and Sarah (left to right) in San Francisco
Tarah Gieger is back!
Now fully recovered from a crash last year at Washougal that left her with a fractured skull and chipped vertebrae, Tarah was released to ride in February after taking nearly seven months off to recuperate. Tarah won round one of the WMA National Championships at Glen Helen last year, and is getting ready to defend her victory at Glen Helen Raceway in San Bernardino, Calif., this Saturday, May 13. Before her accident, Tarah was tied with teammate Sarah Whitmore for second place in the WMA standings, and ended up placing fifth overall in the series despite sitting out the final round at Steel City due to her injuries.
Check out this video clip on Transworld Motocross for an interview with Tarah about her injury, what she did with all of her free time last year and her plans for this year, as well as footage of her riding.
Good luck to Tarah and Sarah this weekend at Glen Helen!
