ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Vicky Golden likes to get off the ground a lot at her job.
"I mean it`s a typical adrenaline rush and by now we`re used to it," says Vicki Golden, Supercross Rider. "It`s just us riding a dirt bike doing our job. Obviously it`s a good job to have."
In her second year on the circuit, Golden will be in the Gateway City on stop number 14 of the Monster Energy Super Cross. There will be no footballs flying through the air inside the dome at America`s Center. Instead, this Saturday at 1:30pm, the world`s top super cross riders will be soaring above the seats.
The riders agree our dirt makes for good tracks and take-offs.
"I think its more East Coast style of dirt is different than what we have in California," says Josh Grant, Supercross Rider. "We have a lot of sunshine and no rain so it`s hard packed whereas out here you got a little bit of moisture and the dirt is different."
"You know your tires change, your suspension, your motor fine tuning changes just the way the dirt is if you have more traction or less traction," says Golden.
Our Midwest mounds of dirt used for super cross and also monster trucks can be re-used for up to ten years. Enough time to see more female riders in the sky.
