Congratulations Jolene on First FMX Event

WMA Pro Racer # 63 and top Canadian female racer Jolene Van Vugt did her first FMX show in Vienna, Austria two weeks ago. The event called the Masters of Dirt included ten Pro FMX athletes including Ronnie Renner and Derek Garland, 20 Pro BMX athletes, and a Freestyle Snowmobile athlete. With only three weeks to prepare, Jolene (known for back-flipping her Suzuki ramp to dirt and jumping into the grand canyon on her bike in the Nitro Circus videos) performed FMX for the first time in front of a sold crowd of 10,000 people.

"I had standing ovations at both shows, it was amazing! Before this I had never jumped indoors, or ramp to dirt in front of more than like 10-15 people, it was an awesome rush and all very overwhelming. All I want to do is get better and do it more!" said Van Vugt.

Jolene finished 10th in the WMA Championship in 2004. She will be racing select rounds of the AMA/WMA National Championship this summer.
