Photojournalist Mary Rinell is coming to OAOMX!

Get ready to meet extreme motorsports photojournalist Mary Rinell (@mjsmotophotos) at Over And Out Moto-X this October! Mary specializes in hard enduro, endurocross and extreme motorsports photography, and I’m sorta fan-girling at the idea of having her at OAOMX with us!

She’ll be photographing at OAOMX, and will be making the photos available for download and sharing by attendees while the event is still going on!

We’re also offering a handful of 20-minute time slots so you can book your own mini-shoot - guaranteeing some badass photos of your very own! (cough-HolidayCard-cough)

First, get to know Mary by reading this interview. You’ll see why we’re so excited to have her!

WHAT MADE YOU PURSUE PHOTOGRAPHY, SPECIFICALLY A FOCUS ON HARD ENDURO AND EXTREME MOTORSPORTS?

I received some excellent advice very early on in my career, to pick a particular passion within the field of photography, and work only on perfecting that one style. This was difficult to do at first, as I find beauty in all types of photography, but one thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to practically live at the races. I’m a rider myself and it’s my happiest of places, always has been!

I followed that advice, and spent the next 3 years doing nothing but races. Literally ANY race I had even the slightest way to get to, I would show up and shoot. Job or not, assignment or not, paycheck or not!

I found my home with the off-road and enduro community. I have somehow become that chick who knows, shoots, and talks to (not to mention cheers on) literally everyone!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE EVENT YOU’VE SHOT?

One race that stands out to me was a West Hare Scramble at Hannegan Speedway in Washington, June of 2015. The race itself was nothing special, but this was my first race working as a student under my now long-term mentor, Mark Kariya (@kato_photo).

I gained more experience in that one race than I had in 2 years of trying to do it on my own. More importantly, I earned the support of a mentor who would become a substantial part of all of my future successes.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED TO DO OR SEE AT OVER AND OUT MOTO-X?

Meet the moto family! No really, it sounds cheesy, but I truly love to connect with new humans who are equally as passionate about the sport as I am! I am super pumped, and absolutely cannot wait to be in the presence of so many badass women.

The moto scene is full of dudes, shout out to them and all, but y’all know how rad it is when you find another chick who rides?! It’s like instant bff’s, you’re making riding plans before you have names figured out and numbers in your phones! LOL

With an event like this, that connection is something I don’t need to ‘find’ or even come up with.. it’s already there! Which is a huge part of what makes one-on-one sessions so amazing; it’s truly easy to connect, and there is nothing I love more then showcasing strong empowered women doing what we love!

I FOLLOWED YOUR TRIP TO CHILE FOR LAST YEAR’S ISDE. IT LOOKED BRUTAL! WHAT ARE SOME OF THE CHALLENGES YOU FACE WHEN SHOOTING AN EVENT?

Oh the ISDE in Chile... that event was brutal for many of us, riders and media alike!

There were some last minute format changes by the FIM, which included elimination of an entire test section. This ended up causing mass confusion and extremely long transfers for riders, crew and media - getting lost, running out of gas, and missing check points. Things we're also very far apart and getting around was very challenging. It was also incredibly hot and dusty.

To prevent theft, we were instructed to carry all of our supplies on us at all times. This was probably my biggest challenge, as hauling my 26 lb backpack full of equipment for 14 hour days (for 6 days in a row) was extremely hard on me physically. By the time I finished the 6 days, I felt like it was ME who had raced. I was holding my pants on with zip-ties! HA!

Yet, by that final day, nothing could stop me from completing my mission; I'm telling y'all a damn bear could have appeared in front of me, and ida just kept on shooting! I had a shutter go out on me mid-final-race, but was able to swap lenses and keep shooting without missing so much as a quarter of a lap. There are unpredictable and sometimes catastrophic challenges to every single race, without fail. You can choose to let the problem stop you, or you can choose to look at it as an opportunity and keep on going!

ON YOUR WEBSITE YOU SAY YOU’RE “ALWAYS A STUDENT”. I LOVE THE IDEA OF ALWAYS LEARNING AND PROGRESSING - SOMETHING WE’RE ALL DOING WITH OUR RIDING SKILLS! WHAT’S BEEN MOST HELPFUL TO YOU IN FACILITATING YOUR GROWTH?

Realizing right away that I had a butt-load to learn, limited resources, and a long hard road ahead was a substantial part of my success. Early on, I needed help to accomplish literally anything, and 2 things helped me the most: gaining support from the race community, and having a mentor to turn to.

Maintaining the approach of ‘forever being a student’ has helped me stay open to criticism and to embrace situations that I may otherwise walk away from.

The only other trait that has been crucial to my success has been “resourcefulness”. I see a LOT of hesitation in this world due to lack of resources. Trust me when I say that I’ve been there, and my advice is this: Don’t get hung up on resources, simply become resourceful. That is far more powerful!

WHAT NEW ADVENTURES ARE COMING UP FOR YOU AFTER OAOMX?

After OAOMX, I hit it hard right off the bat the following week, with back-to-back rounds of EnduroCross in Denver CO, and the following weekend in Nampa, ID. From there, I’ll be home 3 short days before heading out on a 20 day trip to Europe!!!

First, Im headed to the final round of the World Enduro Super Series (WESS), the Getzen Rodeo Extreme Enduro in Drebach, Germany. From there I take a short visit to the KTM Factory in Austria, and then head over to Portimao Portugal to attend the International Six Days of Enduro (ISDE) for my second year.

The ISDE takes around 10 days to prep, attend and shoot, and then complete the post process, so it is quite the time and energy-consuming experience. After that I have a week or so to re-group before a potential hard enduro race in Texas. Before I know it, it’ll be time to celebrate the New Year!

WILL THE MINI-SHOOT PACKAGES AT OAOMX HELP FUND YOUR JOURNEY?

YES!!!! Every penny I make, race or otherwise moto related goes right back in to my business. I work as a freelance photojournalist, so what that really means is that I may work for virtually anyone, at any race that I attend. Every bit of income I earn while I am working goes right back in to the next race, and my ISDE push is the current biggest by far.

This is such an epic opportunity y’all! I feel quite proud of the accomplishment, and cannot wait to show the whole world who mjsmotophotos is: a skinny, loud mouthed, crazy-colorful American, who simply refused to sit in the bleachers. LOL. That said, I am in desperate need of some supplies (remember the backpack story, not doing that again!), as well as having my expenses covered this year, so the push to raise and save has already begun!

I truly appreciate everyone who has supported me over the years, both financially and with encouraging words following along on my journey. I do this for the love, I do this for the smell of race gas, but mostly I do this for the moto family. (That's you!)

P.S. I have a handful of people I'd like to thank, as they've all played valuable roles over the years in all of my accomplishments. I truly feel everything that I have done and can continue to do, would absolutely not be possible without the support of my people! So a huge mention first and foremost to my mentor Mark Kariya, Mike and Sharie Hurlbert and the entire RPM Racing Team, Dawn McClintock at FXR Moto, the entire Shelby Turner family, Erek Kudla and everyone else at the AMA, the local AMRA riders and other riders who support me, and most importantly my best friend and biggest fan Mr. Schettler, who believes in me often times more than I believe in myself. Without my moto fam, I would be half the human.

Off-Road Riding Options for Fall 2019!

Riding, riding and MORE riding… It’s what we’re all about!

Last year a lot of girls reached out to us after Over And Out asking where they could go ride next, and since public riding land in the Northeast is pretty scarce we didn’t have a whole lot of suggestions. Well, the tides are turning as our community grows, and this year we’ve got some rad recommendations!

Check out some of these off-road riding options for Fall 2019, and go have some more adventures!!!

THE DEL VAL TRAIL RIDERS CLUB

The DVTR guided the dual sport rides that ran off-site from Over And Out this year, and they were nothing short of amazing! The DVTR is all about that pure love of riding and having fun with friends.

DVTR members gain club affiliation that allows them to race in ECEA hare scrambles and enduros; plus the DVTR hosts their own events. They are running America’s longest-running dual sport, the Michaux, (which has been sold out for months! sorry!) but they have more events to come, like their Dirty Santa Ride - a family-friendly ride that benefits Toys for Tots at holiday time. Learn more at dvtrailriders.org.

FAMOUS READING OUTDOORS

We are so stoked to partner with Famous Reading Outdoors on our Summer event. I’ve been riding on this land for years and have had some of my biggest challenges (aka getting my ass handed to me) and triumphs riding this wild coal-mining terrain so it’s near to my heart.

It’s also great because you can ride there year round and experience some super challenging stuff. FRO has expanded their offerings, making it easy to try a one-day trial pass, or secure an annual membership and maps online! Learn more at: readingoutdoors.com

Riding Options at Over And Out Moto-X

Our event this October, Over And Out Moto-X, opens the gates to another beautiful piece of private property to cater to female riders of all levels. This property features a fun motocross track, massive farm fields and some woods loops, and it’s located right in the middle of some of the prettiest Delaware River towns nestled along the NJ/PA border.

IMG_0510.jpg

There are a lot of options for all kinds of riders, whether you’re a motocross rider, are a newer rider, a woods rider, or you want to take your street-legal dual sport on a nice camp and ride in a beautiful place this fall! Read on about the riding options at OAOMX!

IMG_4658 copy.JPG

The Track

Everyone can ride on the track. We’ll be running segments of ride time according to rider level, alternating “expert”, “novice”, and “everyone”, so you can enter the track and have some reassurance as to who is on the track with you. From Friday to Sunday, everyone will have ample time to ride the track.

The track features tabletop jumps, and honestly you don’t even need to jump one of these jumps. They can easily be rolled over without even leaving the ground. So they’re great for practicing your body positioning and speed and safely working your way up to catching some air. You can also just ride around anything you’re not ready for ;)

IMG_4738 copy.JPG
IMG_2898.JPG

We have two different class offerings at OAOMX! On-track classes from Lampi MX Training, and intro-to-track classes from GPMX!

We know there are many of you wondering which class is for you, so check out these overviews and a side-by-side comparison of the details so you can make an educated decision and get yourself into a class:

Don’t forget, Over And Out mixes options for those who ride completely off-road with on-road/off-road riders, so you may want to bring more than one type of bike, or just roll in on your street-legal dual-sport to moto-camp on site and explore the beautiful, historic Delaware River Towns nearby.

New Hope, PA

New Hope, PA

At this event we’ll be offering a more miid dual-sport route, one that can be DIY, self-guided.

Lampi MX Training at OAOMX

We’re stoked to have Lampi MX Training classes at Over And Out Moto-X! These 3-hour classes will be held on Saturday, October 5th on the motocross track. These classes are ideal for riders who who are comfortable and capable on their dirt, motocross and woods bikes and are looking to improve crucial techniques.

Get to know professional motocross rider Aaron Lampi, and get all the details about the Lampi MX Training classes!

aaron lampi 813.jpg

Aaron Lampi, Lampi MX Training @lampi813

FIRST, TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOURSELF AND LAMPI MX TRAINING!

Hey, my name is Aaron Lampi. I’m 24 years old and currently live in Fishkill,NY. I started riding when I was 4 years old. My goal was always to become a professional motocross racer. I turned pro at the age of 16 and still race professionally today!

I started teaching 5 years ago as a hobby and to help some of my friends. Now, you could call it a “job” but, I love sharing my knowledge and seeing other people’s riding skills improve.

Aaron Lampi motocross.JPG

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE LIKE RIGHT NOW, WITH TRAINING AND PRO RACING?

I’m so blessed with the life I’m living. During the week, I train riders everyday. When I’m not training, I’m riding and or at the gym! And on the weekends I race. There’s not much time left in a week for much else.

I race almost every weekend starting in April and ending in October. In fact, right after I teach at OAOMX on Saturday October 5th, I’ll be racing the very next day!

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT IT ALL?

The best part about riding and racing dirt bikes is that it’s one of the only times in my life where I’m completely “in the moment”.

IMG_0146.JPG

DO YOU TRAIN ANY FEMALE MX ATHLETES?

I have trained a few female motocross riders! A few that come to mind are Bella Kozloski, Gabriella Marafioti, and Amberly Goyette!

IMG_0144.JPG

WHAT WILL THE CLASS BE LIKE?

My classes cater to a variety of riders. I will individualize attention during the class so I can help each rider on what that rider needs to work on. I will have the class work sections on the track (using a certain span of track, a turn, a jump or other track feature). Riders will receive detailed explanation of technique and apply it on the track repeatedly.

Throughout each drill, I will watch each rider and pull each rider side to give them individual feedback on what they're doing right and what they can do to improve.  We will go over a lot of information like; Attack Position, Cornering Position, Clutch Use, Braking, Acceleration, Jumping, Transitions, Riding Knowledge, and more!

IMG_0147.JPG

WE HAVE A LOT OF ATTENDEES WHO ACTIVELY RIDE WOODS AND ENDURO, BUT NOT NECESSARILY MOTOCROSS. CAN THEY TRAIN WITH YOU TOO?

Absolutely! Not every rider has to have a motocross-specific bike. A rider on a woods bike can dial in their technique just as well in my class.

Check out the registration page for ALL details and bike and gear requirements.

NOTE: There are two different class offerings at OAOMX: Lampi MX Training and GPMX Dirty Girls. They are both on Saturday 10/5 and overlap because they are two different offerings based on rider experience. If you are unsure which class is for you, check out their descriptions on our blog and feel free to send any questions to info@overandoutmoto.com.

And, aside from classes, there will be open riding time on the track and throughout the property.

GPMX Dirty Girls Class at OAOMX

We’re stoked to have GPMX joining us at OAOMX to offer their Dirty Girls class and rental bikes!

If you were at our summer event in Tamaqua, you might have met Marika Pamart on the dual sport rides, or Greg Pamart who built and hosted the obstacle game course! And surely you loved them as much as we do! We’re stoked to have them joining us again at Over And Out Moto-X this October.

GPMX’s class on Saturday, October 5th is SOLD OUT, so we’ve added class availability to Friday, October 4th, with or without one of their bikes.

What is GPMX Dirty Girls? The Dirty Girls class was started by Marika Pamart when she saw a need for women who want to learn how to ride a dirt bike in a less intimidating environment. “Women just enjoy riding and learning with other women! Bonds, friendships and rider-ships are built here! Along with skills and technique in a fun atmosphere!” Marika says.

What will this class be like? This class is great for newer-to-offroad or intermediate dirt riders. This class will take place primarily in fields and grass tracks and will take some laps on the track, so you can see what that’s all about! This class is ideal for anyone who can operate a dirt bike, and is looking to learn and improve proper techniques plus explore the track (as opposed to spending a full class on the track).

IMG_9347.JPG
IMG_9348.JPG
It’s the best and quickest way to practice, have more control, and most importantly: HAVE MORE FUN RIDING!
— Marika Pamart

THE EVENT SPACE IS AMAZING!!!

We’re taking over a pristine private farm in beautiful Stockton, NJ that is equipped with a professionally-built motocross track, trails though fields and woods, a moto clubhouse, a moto garage and more.

IMG_4658 copy.JPG

THE TRACK IS SUPERB

DirtWurx Supercross1.jpg

A motocross track can be super intimidating, but this one is built right and can be approached and enjoyed by riders of all levels - whether you’re looking to take your first roll over a tabletop jump or knock out a Bubba scrub. Riding a track is a great exercise for ALL riders, because it offers you repetition and the opportunity to repeatedly test and perfect proper riding techniques.

OTHER RIDING OPTIONS

The farm property is beautifully maintained. The fields used for camping are not used for animals, and there is a fun perimeter route and short woods trails that are ideal for newer riders or for anyone who wants to cruise around. Mini bikes are especially fun here!

Women's East Coast Enduro Ambassadors at Over And Out

Over And Out Moto brings together women who ride (or want to ride) all types of off-road terrain including woods, enduro, dual sport, motocross and more.

If you don’t know where to begin with off-road riding it can be confusing or challenging to get started, and it can be super intimidating to join a race unless you meet people who help you along, or meet friends who try it with you!

Sure enough in the past year since our first event, a handful of women who met at OAO teamed up to do their first enduros, races and hare scrambles as members of the DVTR riding club. These ladies are coming back to OAO this year, ready to lend their advice about moving forward into new off-road riding (and racing!) adventures..

“What I love most about racing and riding in the ECEA is the opportunity to ride through beautiful places that are normally closed off to bikes, and the chance to pursue the next level of riding on my own terms, without being pressured into winning.”
- Katie Baden, Delaware Valley Trail Riders, KTM Freeride

IMG_9560.JPG

”I am in awe that I even showed up to my first race. You know when you fully believe that something is out of your reach? It’s for someone else to do. For someone stronger or smarter or better with way superior, bushier eyebrows who can wheelie? But then you do the thing and you clearly see all the make believe barriers you create or agree to. You realize you can do just about anything if you have the desire, if you persist and if you take the chance that you, your very own vulnerable, imperfect self, has limitless potential.”
- Nicole Maniez, DVTR, KTM 150 XCW

IMG_9559.PNG
IMG_9558.PNG

“I joined an ECEA club because I love riding off road. It gives me the opportunity to meet awesome women and men who love to ride also. You don’t have to race Enduros or Hare Scrambles to have fun. I’m in it for the trail riding, the people and the opportunities to grow as a proficient rider.”
- Tamara Berisha, DVTR, KTM 250 EXC-F

Keep your eyes peeled for the Women’s East Coast Enduro Association Ambassadors at Over And Out. They’ll be wearing hi-viz bandanas and they’re all set to talk to you about racing and riding with the ECEA!

GPMX Obstacle Course and BetaUSA Enduro Games

Over And Out can be as chill of an experience as you want it to be, but this event was created to open the doors to more technical and challenging enduro riding. Our area is known for having some of the toughest terrain in the country, so for those of you ready to shred: you are in the right place!

For those of you looking to test your skills, practice technique, or try something technical for the very first time: you'll also be in the right place! That’s how OAO rolls. ;)

Check out our on-site obstacle training course, hosted by Greg Pamart of GPMX, and compete in our enduro games to win prizes from our sponsor Beta USA!

Guided Dual Sport Rides

We’re super proud to have the Del Val Trail Riders as our partners, helping us create amazing dual sport routes for this year’s Over And Out! The DVTR team knows the area well, and has not only helped us create banging routes, but key members will be supporting us as guides and sweeps!

For riders with plated dirt bikes, enduros or dual sport bikes, these rides will go out from the OAO event space and explore some awesome off-road routes in the local area. Reminder: you must have an event ticket to sign up for the dual sport rides! Get one here.

Learn all about this year’s rides and sign up below!

Marika Pamart Dual Sport.jpg

THE GUIDES

Our amazing guide this year is Marika Pamart, a passionate rider and coordinator of all-women’s track days. Marika will be leading the pack, flanked by experienced dual sport sweeps from the DVTR. You’ll be in excellent hands on this ride, 1000%!

Marika is super passionate about female riding experiences, and just as Over And Out was created to provide cross-exposure for women who ride enduro vs. dual sport, Marika also created a program called Ruts To Racelines that has the same philosophy - exposing asphalt track riders to dirt and vice-versa!

THE RIDES

FRIDAY 1 - 5pm | THE GHOST TOWN

Friday’s route will go out from OAO to the town of Centralia, PA, once a populated coal mining town until an uncontrollable underground fire broke out in the mining tunnels back in 1962, still burning to this day!

CentraliaHistory.jpg

The town went into decline, and in the 90’s the town’s buildings were condemned and the zip code officially eliminated. Since then the ground has continued to fissure and shift making it an eerie sight. The town was the inspiration for the design of the psychological horror game, Silent Hill.

Silent Hill.jpg

What was once PA Route 61 has over time come to be known as The Graffiti Highway. Here’s a nice article about The Graffiti Highway on Forbes. And, here’s a hilarious one from Buzzfeed.

Centralia OffRoad.jpg
Centralia Graffiti Highway.jpg

SATURDAY 9am - 4pm | MOUNTAIN OF THE SLEEPING BEAR

The town of Jim Thorpe was originally named Mauch Chunk, meaning “Mountain of the Sleeping Bear”. Nestled between beautiful ridges full of foliage, it has been referred to as “The Switzerland of America” and consistently named one of the Most Beautiful Small Towns in America!

Downtown_Jim_Thorpe_18_Low_Res_PoconoMtns.jpg

Saturday’s dual sport ride will depart from the OAO event and cover a wide range of terrain: farm roads with sweeping views, dirt trails through the woods, rocky haul roads and more. You’ll stop along some beautiful overlooks for fun photo ops before making your way into the town of Jim Thorpe.

Farm.jpg
XT250 Yamaha.jpg
Marika WR250r.jpg

This ride will stop in town by about 12pm to grab lunch at Molly Maguires (lunch is not included). The restaurant is named for the Molly Maguires - a 19th century Irish secret society known for activism, but whose members were accused of crimes and executed right in the town of Mauch Chunk, now Jim Thorpe. This history remains a big piece of local Pennsylvania lore.

And on the way back you’ll stop for ice cream! haha.

Dirt Bikes and S'mores and Bears, Oh My!

This year, Over And Out is in a brand new event space, and a whole extra day, so we know that ladies rolling in on Friday are going to dive right in to get the lay of the land and braaaap their hearts out!

Come Friday night, as the sun sets on our first day of riding, we’ll be joined by environmental education specialist, Robin Tracey, from our neighbor to the north, the Tuscarora State Park. Robin will join us around the fire to tell us all about local furry “friends”, and my own personal spirit animal: bears!

bear-20-ajpg-dad1c9848adeadbb.jpg

Part of living an adventurous lifestyle is acknowledging the responsibility that comes along with venturing into the natural habitats of bears and other animals.

Both Tuscarora and Locust Lake state parks offer a wide variety of environmental education, recreational, and interpretive activities, like guided walks, and evening programs. Through these activities, participants gain appreciation, understanding, and develop a sense of stewardship toward natural resources.

IMG_0461 (1280x960).jpg

Robin will tell us all about bears of the world, and of this region, their habitats, as well as feeding and sleeping habits. We’ll also discuss what you should do if you encounter a bear in the wild. (I’m torn between running away screaming vs. trying to feed it by chucking it some of my Honey Stingers. I’m sure Robin will advise.)

Here’s a picture of baby bears, just because…

bear-16-ajpg-82edbee3f3876f93.jpg

Robin’e Bear Talk will be happening on-site at Over And Out Friday 6/21 at 7:30pm. We’ll light the bonfire (weather permitting), bust out the s’mores and get our bear-ings! ;P

Bears of PA-1500px.jpg

For anyone who isn’t necessarily riding a motorcycle the entire time at OAO, you can also join Robin for an educational hike through the Tuscarora State Park:

Saturday 6/22 at 10:30am - Hike through the Tuscarora State Park’s Crow, Lake View and Spirit Trails. The hike is 9 miles in length, and moderate in difficulty. Meeting place is in the Crow Trail parking lot. Shine only, and bring a lunch (and hiking-worthy shoes obvi) Specific questions? Call Robin at (570) 467-2506.

Meet Beta USA Pro Racer, Rachel Gutish!

With Over And Out less than a month away, we’re ALL getting super excited! This year we have Beta USA pro racer Rachel Gutish joining us! Rachel races GNCC and competes in some of the more technical enduro events in the country. It’ll be really awesome to watch her rip (and maybe even get a few casual pointers from her on how to tackle some of the gnarliest stuff!)

Get to know Rachel, learn more about why Betas are great bikes for technical riding and for women, and read to the end to get a little heads up on some more fun going down at OAO.

HOW DID YOU START RIDING?

I started riding when I was five years old, and started racing when I was seven. My dad was a good local A rider and even competed on a club team in the ISDE (International Six Days Enduro). I was six years old when he went overseas to compete, and I remember wanting more than anything to go with him.

I thought getting to do that was the coolest thing ever, and I decided right then that someday I was going to do the Six Days too. The year I turned sixteen, I qualified on the Women’s Trophy Team; The hard work paid off and the dream actually came true!

YOU’VE DONE ALL KINDS OF GNARLY RIDING! TELL US MORE!

I already talked a bit about the ISDE, which I competed in from 2012 through 2016. I have two silver medals, two mechanical failures and one fairly stupid crash which lead to an unfortunate DNF. :/

Primarily I’ve raced the GNCC series (the Grand National Cross Country), even though it isn’t necessarily the type of racing I feel like I’m the best at. No matter what else I was doing, I always raced the GNCC’s, even if it was only for part of the season. I have raced the NEPG series off and on, and I raced EnduroCross for several seasons. I also have a Bronze Medal from the X Games for EnduroCross.

I now compete in Extreme Enduros like Tough Like RORR (which takes place right across the street from the new Over And Out property!), and the TKO (Kenda’s Tennessee Knock Out). These events sort of help fill that technical-racing void now that I’m not pursuing EnduroCross. I tied with Chantelle Bykerk as the first female rider to finish Knock Out One on Pro day, and tied with my teammate Morgan Tanke as the first female finisher of at King of the Motos.

TELL US ABOUT RIDING FOR BETA!!!

I started out riding for Beta last year as a support rider after suffering an injury and losing my place on another team. Words really can’t express how grateful I am to Tim and Rodney at Beta for taking a chance on me. Especially given that they already had a female rider, my buddy Morgan Tanke, on the West Coast. They were satisfied enough with my performance last year to promote me up to the factory team this year, which is really amazing.

Photo by @EGutishPhotography

Photo by @EGutishPhotography

Not all teams can commit the resources to put more than one woman on their team - even when the two riders have their own speciality (Morgan and I both rode EnduroCross for several seasons, but she does the west coast desert-racing series like Hare and Hound, while I stick to the GNCCs and other east coast off road races).

So, aside from my deep personal gratitude to Beta for taking a chance on an injured rider when nobody else would, I think it’s awesome that they see women’s racing as legitimate enough to have even one female rider on their factory team, let alone two! It also doesn’t hurt that their bikes are hands-down my favorite to ride. I love the stability of the chassis and the smooth power.

WHICH BETA MODEL DO YOU RIDE, AND WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT IT?

Right now I ride a 390 RR, and before anyone asks, yes it is a little heavy and a lot of bike for somebody my size. But I’ve mostly ridden four-strokes through my career, and the Beta is incredibly tractable and controllable. And I love the massive amounts of power you have there at your fingertips.

With a bike like that, just a little twist of the throttle is enough to pop a massive power wheelie strong enough to carry you right over the nearest ditch/log/downed rider (mostly kidding about that last one) with ease.

Photo by Ken Hill courtesy Beta USA Gallery

Photo by Ken Hill courtesy Beta USA Gallery

And I never have to worry about getting outmotored in the open fields and grasstracks. With that being said though, since I am coming back from an injury, Beta and I have been discussing the possibility of me trying a lighter small-bore two-stroke, just to see how I like it. Can’t say much more than that about it now though, you guys will just have to wait and see what I unload out of my van on Friday morning at OAO!

SPEAKING OF OAO, WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO JOIN US THIS YEAR?!

The first time I heard about Over And Out was when Beta sent me an email asking me if I would attend the event (since Beta was sponsoring it). So I checked out the website and watched the MakeUp To Mud feature, and I realized this wasn’t just going to be the standard “I’m going to this event because my team asked me to” situation. I’m REALLY excited about this!

Photo by Ken Hill courtesy Beta USA Gallery

I mostly ride with guys. Usually for me, getting to go and just ride with another female in a non-competitive situation is a huge treat, so getting to ride with a massive group of women who love the sport as much as I do is going to be awesome!

WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO THE MOST?

I heard something about an obstacle course*, which sounds right up my alley. Technical riding is still my favorite kind of riding! I’m also looking forward to doing some trail riding and hanging out - most of the time when I’m on the bike it’s super-focused training, so I’m really looking forward to kicking back and having some FUN!

————-

*So, cats out of the bag - aside from all the natural obstacles on the property we will have a small obstacle course, and an obstacle portion of our games - provided and run by GPMX and with prize packs courtesy of Beta USA! Stay tuned for a full post about all the games at OAO! ;)

We first met Alexa at last year’s event. She came out to the event to get more confident on her dirt bike… and did she ever! Alexa came alone and nervous to ride her CRF150f, but after taking a lesson, making new friends, and winning a sick gear set in the raffle she came out standing and doing endless figure-8’s like nobody’s business.

Meet Alexa, and hit the pre-order!

HOW DID YOU START RIDING?

Funny story: My boyfriend (now fiance, Tyler) gave me a choice between an engagement ring or a dirt bike. I chose dirt bike! But a year and a half later I now have both, so it was a win-win! Lately, we’ve been toying with the idea of skipping our wedding and just getting some Harleys because why not?  

I started riding in 2017 but I still consider myself a new rider. I started by riding around the yard and practicing the basics, but Over And Out was where I really became more comfortable.

Alexa Warshany Over And Out 3.jpg

AND YOU OWN YOUR OWN BUSINESS?!

Yep! In-House Prints is a full service branding agency in Frenchtown, NJ (shameless plug!). It started as a hobby for Tyler and me. I used to work for a pretty big marketing company and realized the desk job was not for me. So now we have our own shop and print for tons of local businesses!

My mom always told me to find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life. Well, here I am! 

Alexa and Tyler

Alexa and Tyler

WHAT’S IT LIKE RUNNING YOUR OWN BUSINESS?

I'll be honest, it's tough! We hustle every day of the week at all hours of the day, but I wouldn't change it for the world. I get to work with my best friend! I also get to meet a ton of awesome people (like Kelly from Over And Out! <3) and build their vision. It's so rewarding to me to watch someones dream come true right in front of them, and to get to be a part of it. 

WHAT IS FREE2RIDE?

Free2Ride is an action sports brand Tyler started 10 years ago. He had the vision of creating a brand that supports all action sports, whether it's surfing. snowboarding, bmx, dirtbikes etc. The best part about F2R is that we are able to support so many great events. We’re both passionate about creating cool gear that fits the standards of athletes and brands, and we offer our detailed insight on everything from products, materials, size, to print processes to give people the quality they’re looking for!

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF OAO LAST YEAR?

I definitely can't pick one thing. It was literally the entire event. Everyone was so supportive and friendly. I'm a very new rider and the lessons were so helpful! The raffle is where I won my first official set of Fox gear! The entire vibe of the event was rad. If you are debating on going, you should 100% go.

I knew nobody when I went up. I had never even loaded/unloaded my bike by myself. I kid you not, before I could even push the truck door all the way open, there were girls already at my door asking if I needed help getting my bike down. Sometimes girls get a bad rap, but these girls at OAO are the best of the best! 

I can't wait to meet so many new ladies, and I’m especially excited to deliver these pre-event items to OAO this year and hand them off to ladies picking up their orders!
