San Diego, CA - February 8, 2006 - Sick Racing has developed a strong
relationship with women's motocross over the past 4 years and the 2006
season will see an expansion of their support. In addition to stepping
up its support of the Women's Motocross Association, Sick Racing will
be increasing its rider program. Kaite Garret (YAM #14), Lindsey
Jelitto (SUZ #29) and Jessica Patterson (HON #250) will round out Sick
Racing's 2006 Pro Line-Up. Kaite Garrett and Lindsey Jelitto will lead
the charge on the track while Jessica Patterson will represent Sick
Racing as a spokes model for their recreational clothing line.
Garret, 20, has been racing the Women's Motocross Association Outdoor
Motocross Championships as a pro for four years. Her personality,
commitment to school and strong racing career, she is an excellent
representative for Sick Racing and an inspiration to young girls
everywhere. Garret will be competing in the WMA 2006 Nationals.
Jelitto, 19, is coming off her best season ever. Jelitto became first
Women's Arenacross World Champion after clenching first place at Clear
Channel's Amateur Arenacross World Finalsheld at the MGM Grand, in Las
Vegas, Sunday, Oct. 9th, following the US Open of Supercross. Jelitto
followed that up with a 7th overall in the Z1R Helmets WMA Cup
presented by Hitachi, at the Cycle Ranch MX Park over Thanksgiving
weekend. Jelitto's 2006 racing plans include the Spring Classic at Lake
Whitney, the 2006 AMA Amateur National Motocross Championships at
Lorreta Lynn's as well defending her title in Las Vegas come October.
As an "up'n comer" in the sport, Jelitto had many choices when it came
to sponsorship for 2006. When asked about her choice, Jelitto happily
responded "I chose Sick Racing because they are the most friendly and
helpful people I have ever met in this industry, they have awesome
gear, there casual wear is really cool and cute as well as there
accessories. I just love being able to be a part of a company helping
women succeed in what has traditionally been known as a man's
sport...but also looking good while doing it."
Patterson, 22, 3-time WMA Pro Champion & 3-time AMA Loretta
Lynn's Women's Class Champion, touts one of the best records in women's
MX history. Patterson has been a force in women's MX since the late
nineties. Her dedication and commitment to the sport make her the
perfect choice to represent Sick Racing's recreational clothing line.
"It's really cool to be involved with a company that's so unique in our
sport. Sick Racing was started by three women in California that
are really passionate about motocross, and they are involved in the WMA
in a big way. Their clothing is really cool too, and I'm exited
to be able to help get them some more exposure."
Patterson plans on defending her WMA title in this year's series, and
will also seek to win Loretta Lynn's title #4 in Tennessee this August.

Association and is very please provide support for such a dedicated and
talented group of riders in 2006" said Shasta Johnson, President and
