Sarah Whitmore has been making strides for women and motocross for some time, and 2007 will be no different. Although Sarah was hurt for much of the 2006 season with a separated shoulder, she continued to campaign for women and motocross, including being on MTV’s True Life, and ESPN Magazine. She is also a part of the recently released DVD by etnies girl, “12 Pack.”
For 2007, Sarah will be joining forces with the Yamaha backed Motoworldracing.com team and pitting under their canopy and along side the team’s male riders. She will also be at each of the West coast Supercross Lites events signing autographs and publicizing the team and its sponsors. Joining Sarah under the Motoworldracing.com canopy will be Girlyz’ sponsored Katie McGuire. So come out and meet Sarah and her new teammate at Anaheim 1 on January 6, 2007.
Paul Lindsey of Motoworldracing.com said, “We couldn’t be happier to have the relationship with Sarah, as she is certainly one of the sport’s most recognizable racers, male or female. Women in motocross is certainly a burgeoning industry, and we feel that it is an honor to have someone of her caliber and distinction on the team. We are looking forward to supporting Sarah in her effort to come back stronger than ever for 2007 and bring Yamaha a championship.”
Sarah replied, “I am very excited to be on the team, as I have been riding for Yamaha forever, and the Motoworldracing.com team is going to bring even more publicity and notoriety to women in motocross. My shoulder is healing up nicely, and I can’t wait to start racing again.”
