REALMOTOCROSS MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: SARAH WHITMORE!
Here at realMotocross we have over 40,000 members. Most are everyday riders, racers and fans like you and I…but we also have a lot of talent here. One of our more esteemed members (and a realMotocross sponsored rider) is Pro WMX racer Sarah Whitmore.
Sarah is a well-known racer who is riding in the WMX Nationals this year. She’s got some tough competition and has battled back from injury - but with the help of her family, sponsors (like us) and fans, she hopes to get on the podium this year.
We took a minute to talk with Sarah between rounds…and here’s what we found out…
RMX: Will you be competing in every round of the Lucas Oil Outdoor Pro Nationals this year?
SW: The WMX division runs a bit different than the men’s side, so the women will run 8 out of the 12 men's nationals…so I'll be doing all 8!
RMX: What bike are you riding this year?
SW: I’ll be competing in the 2012 WMX season on a Cheboygan KTM.
RMX: How did you hookup with the folks at realMotocross?
SW: I’ve known about realMotocross for a while now and I had a chance to meet with Iain…after that I finally got things set up with them and I’m really happy about it!
RMX: What number will you be running this year?
SW: Unfortunately, I broke my hand last year and missed half the races so I have a high number this year, it’s Number 12.
RMX: Can you name three highlights in your career?
SW: I can name four actually!!! All four of my Loretta Lynn championships would be the first four…and then multiple WMX Nationals overall wins.
RMX: What are your racing goals for this season?
SW: I’m optimistic I can run in the top five and hopefully make some podiums this year too!
RMX: Are you on Twitter and if so, what’s your Twitter profile name?
SW: Sure thing I’m on it – check out my tweets at @swhitmore89
RMX: Any tattoos?
SW: Ha Ha – OK, yes. But my tattoos can only be seen at the beach!
RMX: Chocolate or Vanilla?
SW: Vanilla! Because vanilla cupcakes are the best invention ever made! But everything else should be made of chocolate! :)
