SHIFT SIGNS SARAH WHITMORE
- January 31, 2008

Women’s motocross is bigger and better than ever and Shift has jumped into the fray by signing top AMA/WMA competitor Sarah Whitmore to sport their new line of women’s race gear for the 2008 season.

Sarah may be new to Shift, but she’s definitely no stranger to the brand. “I have been a big fan of Shift for years and I actually won my class at Loretta Lynn’s back in 1998 in Shift gear that I bought!, said Whitmore. “When I saw that Shift was making women’s gear, I knew it would be the perfect fit!”

“Shift has always had a unique and aggressive style”, said Shift Brand Manager Brett Nicholas, “which is why we’ve waited to find a rider who’s equally as energized and independent. Sarah is the nicest girl you could meet off the track, but when the gate drops, you better watch out because this girl knows how to twist the throttle!”

Whitmore has numerous Loretta Lynn’s titles to her credit and has also claimed several national wins in the women’s pro championship. For 2008, Sarah has made some big changes in her efforts to take the title including a switch to Suzukis, where she will be running #89 in honor of her Grandmother.

Whitmore Joins Forces with Motoworldracing.com

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.”

Sarah would like to thank all of her sponsors: Yamaha, Michelin, etnies girl, Deluge Water, Scott Goggles, Alpinestars, Kicker, O’gio, FMF, Enzo Suspension, CTi Knee Braces, American Racing, DRC Products, Zeta, FASST Bars, Sunstar, Hinson, Boyesen, Pro Wheel, Elf Lubricants, Acerbis, P.C.S. neck support, ZLT, Twin Air Filters, Applied, Hot Cams, Galfer, Wiseco Pistons, Pro Clean, Engine Ice, Motorsport Products, Carbon Fiber Works, Mototassinari, Tekbolt, Hammerhead Designs, HRP Sports, Ultimate MX Hauler, and WINXS.

September 4th 2006
From Steve Adalcos, Sarah's agent:
Sarah and Tarrah raced on Sunday (same day as the males), during intermission and after the last male race was over. Accordingly, there were approximately 20,000 fans at the race.

Thank you for the continued support, and I look forward to speaking with you regarding 2007.

Both Tarah and Sarah will be at the final round of the Motocross Nationals this weekend at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, CA. They will also be bowling in the Motobowl on Thursday, Sept. 7, 2006, to help raise money for the Women's Motocross Foundation, which donates money to the various safety organizations and the Asterisk Medical Unit.

The opportunity to bowl with Sarah and Tarah (separate teams) was put on ebay to allow fans to bid. They brought in more money than most of their male counterparts. Just another demonstration of their popularity.

Take care.
Steve Adalcos

Richardson's RV Race Report
AMA/WMA National Motocross

Glen Helen - Rd. 1:
The first round of the Women's Motocross Association's (WMA) series was held on May 13, 2006 at Glen Helen Raceway in Devore, California. It would mark Tarah's first race back to the series, since her series-ending crash last year at round 4, where she suffered a fractured skull and a chipped vertebrae. Two weeks prior to the race, Sarah suffered a separated shoulder while practicing.

When the gate dropped for the first moto, Sarah had a terrible start and began in about eighth. Tarah, on the other hand, had a decent start in about fourth. By the end of lap one Tarah was leading the race, and beginning to pull away from the pack. Going up one of the big uphills, she hit a rock and fell, dropping her back several positions and finished in sixth. Tarah said, "The bike was working well, but I was having some carburetion problems. I was pulling away from the pack, and just made a rookie mistake. I feel good, and my endurance is better than I thought, given I have been off of the bike for so long."

While Tarah struggled to start her bike on the hill, Sarah was charging forward, injured shoulder and all. She began picking off rider after rider, until she was in fourth, fighting for third. On the last turn before the finish line, Sarah made an aggressive move to obtain third. Sarah had this to say, "I got a horrible charge, and just kept thinking about my shoulder. I was basically racing to salvage points for the series, but once the gate dropped and I was so far back, I just charged and kind of forgot about the shoulder. On the last turn I had to make a pass for third to get on the podium, so that is what I did. After all, it's racing right?"

In the second moto, Sarah got a much better start, and was charging forward. Unfortunately, she fell in the back section. This required her to charge even harder, eventually fighting her way up to fifth. Sarah ultimately received Second overall in round one. Tarah got a horrible start and had to put her head down and charge the entire moto. She also fell in the back section, and could only make her way to tenth, for Ninth overall.

Throughout the day, the team had numerous fans and photographers at the team's rig and in the hospitality area. The track is sponsored by Richardson's RV, which ensured prime real estate in the pits. Two Wheel Tuesday on Speed TV is airing the highlights and interviews on Tuesday, May 30, 2006, 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. (EST).

Hangtown - Rd. 2:
The team trekked up to Sacramento for the second round of the WMA. Tarah was recovering with a bout of food poisoning and was intent on soldiering through, even though she had not eaten anything substantive for three days prior to the race.

In moto one, Tarah got a decent start and began charging, her bike running much better at this point. She collided with another rider and had a horrible time getting started. Eventually she got going again, and took 11th. Sarah also had a decent start, but collided with a rider as well. This left her fighting from the back, eventually working her way to Sixth.

In the second moto, Tarah got a much better start, and began fighting toward the lead. In fact, she was in second place for the next two laps before she got a flat tire. "I finally got a good start and was charging. I was not feeling all that great physically, due to not eating all week, but blocked that out because I was so mad about my performance. I should be up front, and have the bike to keep me there this year. Unfortunately, I have had a lot of bad luck. Hopefully, all of the bad stuff is behind me, and I can come back strong for the next rounds," said Tarah.

Sarah's start in the second moto was not as good as Tarah's, as she had a rider go down right in front of her, sending her to the ground, and requiring her to start from the end of the pack. Sarah exclaimed, "I was pissed. I knew my bike was running better this weekend and I have the speed and endurance. I finally got a good start, and someone crashed right in front of me, sending me to the ground and putting me in dead last." Sarah charged through the pack throughout the race and made her way to Seventh, for Sixth overall.

After two rounds, Sarah sits in 6th, eighteen points back from the lead. Tarah is currently 10th. Both vow to come back healthy and hungry for the win. You can see the television coverage of the Hangtown round on OLN on Saturday, May 27, 2006 at 6:00 p.m. (EST).

Biography
 

Sarah Whitmore is among the motocross racing elite. After winning the 1998 and 1999 amateur National Championship in the Women's 12-15 year old class, Sarah went on to place second in her first attempt at the 16+ Women's class racing against women much older and more experienced than herself. Sarah then pulled an upset by winning her first ever moto in the Professional Class at Broome-Tioga, New York With these results Sarah has established herself as one of the fastest women in the world and has received coverage in major publications.

Sarah has spent her winter racing the Florida Winter AM Series and training at the Georgia Practice Facility. This facility has a professionally built supercross track and motocross track. With only selected riders being allowed to train there. With these things in her favor Sarah hopes to become the fastest woman in the world.

Sarah Whitmore has always had a competitive spirit and a passion for motorcycles. Her father, Terry being a certified motorcycle technician, has always been there to encourage his young "biker", and ...if a mechanical problem arises, he is there for that as well.

Today, Sarah continues to grow in strength and gain experience through countless hours spent weight lifting, running, kick boxing and practicing her riding skills endlessly. Sacrificing such teenage endeavors as dating and spending time just 'hanging out' with friends are all part of the price she is prepared to pay to achieve her goal to race professionally.

Sarah calls Northern Michigan hr home. While most in the motocross industry consider the northern climate a hindrance Sarah has always been creative in finding ways to stay fit - and competitive.

Traveling in the family's well - used motorhome and trailer, Sarah is preparing to compete this season at the professional races in many states along the east coast, California, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Canada in her quest to become the best.

Strong, determined, dedicated, focused and highly motivated, Sarah is prepared to take on motocross industry and show the world what a young woman from northern Michigan can achieve in Motocross at it's highest level - as a professional.
