Canyon Lake, CA – Monster Kawasaki Team Green’s Sara Price had a successful week of racing over the Thanksgiving holiday at the Winter Mini Olympics in Gainesville, Florida. She brought home a second in Motocross and a third in Supercross.
16-year-old Price, who is racing women’s amateur until her WMA pro debut next May, won her motocross Heat race and in the Main had the chance to race seasoned WMA Pro racers Jessica Patterson and Tarah Gieger. Price had a good start and was second into the first turn behind Patterson. She kept Patterson in her sights the entire moto finishing a solid 2nd overall.
In Supercross, Price got the holeshot on her KX250F and led three-quarters of the race. She made a few mistakes that cost her two positions but finished in the third spot on the podium.
“It was great to get to run with such accomplished pro racers like Patterson and Gieger” said Price “I feel like I can run the pace and that I will be even more prepared for my first WMA pro race next Spring. It was also exciting to have such a great turnout of women racers at the Mini O’s”.
Sara was part of the special Thor Rider Appreciation exhibit at the Mini O’s that featured replica manikins of four of Thor’s top amateur racers including Price, Dean Wilson, Cooper Webb and Terren Odell. The display included an oversized action poster, a replica of Sara’s 2009 KX 250F and a manikin decked out in Thor Women’s Phase gear and Helmet.
