On June 6th, 2014 , 17 year old Sara King donned her Cap and Gown and headed off to her Grade 12 Graduation Ceremony.  By 3pm, she was on the road headed to Kamloops to compete in the 2nd round of the Western Canadian Women’s National Motocross Series.  Although pressured by her classmates to ditch the race and attend Prom, Sara was focused on her date with her Honda CRF250.

Finishing 2nd overall in the first round at the Wasteland MX Park in Naniamo, round two of the Series took place at the Whispering Pines MX Track  June 7th,  with Sara finishing 4th in her 1st moto and 3rd in her 2nd moto,  to give her  3rd place overall for the day.   In her 1st moto she captured the “HoleShot” (first bike out of the gate to reach a designated spot after the first corner) which she earned $100, sponsored by TMK Motorsports and TrimFX.  A huge 95 foot double was key to the riders who were out front as only 5 of the 26 bikes were doing the jump.  In her 2nd moto she was squeezed out of the “HoleShot” by inches, but maintained a comfortable 3rd place finish, which put her 3rd overall for the day.

After Kamloops it was off to Calgary for the final round on June 14th at the Wild Rose MX Park.  With 32 women on the gate, Sara claimed another HoleShot and $100.  Two 3rd place finishes in her motos clinched her 3rd for the day and 3rd overall for the 3 Round Series.  Sara can now change her National Number Plate from 5 to 3.

On August 10th, Sara will be attending the Parts Canada TransCan Grand National Championship in Walton, Ontario where the East meets the West to showcase the fastest women racers in Canada.  To keep in tune with her bike, Sara will attend local races in the area and continue her routine at the gym to keep in shape.

This is Sara’s 9th season of racing and without the continued support of family, friends and local businesses, being able to attend all these races would not be possible.  Sara would like to thank her local sponsors.
