Pam bought herself a 125cc motocross bike when she was 19 and started Desert racing with ADRA for a year but she went a motocross track a few years later and never cared for Desert racing again.
She enjoys the jumps the most while motocross racing…she excels at those because it doesn’t take as much skill as the other things on the track.
Pam has raced in several of the OT International races over the years but her favorite trip was when she went to Washougal and then visited British Columbia the following weekend. Her favorite Arizona OT International race was 2-3 years ago because it was a great competitive race where she could have actually won if not for her stalling her bike so she only ended up with a 3rd overall.
When I asked Pam how competitive she is in racing…she said she was an 8.5 because she is extremely competitive in everything she does.
Her favorite Moto memory of all time was in January of 2021 which was her last race at Canyon before she moved to Colorado because the Old Timers threw her a surprise “goodbye” party complete with a plaque and a buffet and there was even cake!
The 3rd photo above is Pam with her twin boys Damien & Reece and her daughter Alyssa. Her boys are currently serving in the Army and most of you Old-Old Timers will remember them.
