Team owner Todd Hansen is honored to officially announce Vicki Golden to our 2015 Supercross Lites team, Vicki will debut in Arlington, Texas February 14, aboard her Suzuki RM-Z250 , powered by Bill’s Pipes and Wiseco.
“HRT is focused on supporting Vicki with a top notch program, we have great alliances that give her the necessary tools to compete at the highest level, Vicki is a World Class athlete that’s extremely motivated and proven” said Todd Hansen.
History was made in March, 2014 in AMSOIL Arenacross, Vicki Golden added to her racing legacy by becoming the first woman to complete Ricky Carmichael’s Road to Supercross.
Vicki – “It’s awesome. It doesn’t really make a difference that I’m the first woman; I guess it’s more being the only one. It really makes it more prestigious in my eyes that I have the talent and courage to go up against men in one of the most aggressive [championships] in the sport. I think part of it also is that now no one can tell me I can’t race [supercross] or that I’m only there because someone gave me an exemption. I met the qualifications like every other guy that will be out there.”
“We are excited to be a part of history and for what the future holds for Vicki and HRT Racing,” said, Tim Slayton. HRT Team Manager
