Women’s Amateur Motocross Racer Anna George, A Little Lady With Big Dreams
Racing around the Loretta Lynn motocross track this past August, was a little lady with big dreams named Anna George. Anna, who chose to be #17 because of her November 17th birthday, is just 11 years old. Yet having been here for just a little over a decade, she already has a lot of motocross racing experience under her belt. Her dream is to one day be the future Women’s Motocross National Champion. She began riding a Yamaha PW 50 when she was just barely the age of three. One year later she was already racing around her local motocross track on a KTM SX 60…and winning too. Motocross racing is a family sport, and like most up and coming motocross racers, Anna’s father Joey raced dirt bikes when he was younger too. He dreamed of being a professional, but did not have the money to pursue his goal. To his surprise, none of his son’s took to the sport, yet his daughter immediately took to it. The family lives in San Antonio, Texas, and calls Cycle Ranch their home track. Anna finished 12th overall in the Girls 9-11 class at the prestigious 2012 Loretta Lynn Amateur Motocross Nationals. Anna was on her way to a top ten finish, but a migraine prior to her third moto forced her to settle for 12th overall.
Sponsored by ‘Mom and Dad’, Anna represents the heart and soul of American motocross and the dreams that come with it. “I want to be a Pro one day” said Anna to Chronic MX. “I love the sport and want to get my name up to the top”. Anna trains quite hard for a little 11 year old. She spends her weekends riding with her best friend Kaitlyn Morrow, who also rode at Loretta’s…in the women’s 12 -15 years old class. Anna claims to get her inspiration from a pro rider named Taylor Higgins. Higgins is also from Texas, and is a 17 year old WMX pro motocross who cannot hear. Higgins is deaf, just as the sports champion Ashley Fiolek is. Higgins is backed by big name sponsors and finished just outside the top twenty this year. We are wishing Anna George a successful career in her quest to be the next WMX motocross champion one day. ‘If you can dream it, you can do it!’ Cheers, Chronic MX.
