Heading into the 2012 X-Games, expectations were high for a repeat gold medal in the Womens Motocross Finale. As the race day drew on it became more
obvious that Vicki Golden, 2 time X-Games Gold Medalist, would be a force to be reckoned with heading into the feature race. Vicki would practice 2nd in warmups, win her heat and get preferred lineup for the feature on the inside. But without a great start, all of that would be for nothing. As the gate dropped on the Women's Motocross Finale the desire for Vicki to win gold was obvious as she got the ultimate hole shot going into turn one and never looked back. Vicki would go on to win the Women's Motocross Gold by a dominating 8 seconds over second place to claim her second gold medal in the last 2 years!
“I wanted this race more than anything right now. The pressure was definitely high but I thrive on that pressure. Obviously we had a fast bike and I was super comfortable on the track but everything still had to go right. We got an amazing start and with the hole shot I was able to drive away and enjoy the ride!!!!”, explained 2 Time X-Games gold medal winner Vicki Golden.
