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.

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 ;)

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, 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).

It’s the best and quickest way to practice, have more control, and most importantly: HAVE MORE FUN RIDING!
