My name is Taylor Higgins and Im 17 years
old. Im also deaf! Born and raised in
I started to ride when I was 6 years old. My
uncle used to race motocross. They would let me get
on there gas tank and take me for a ride around.
After that I told my grandpa I wanted a bike. The
next morning he got me a PW50. He would take me to
empty fields and I fell in love with riding ever
I continue to ride because I love it! You always
have fun! Its so addicting because it
challenges you and you get to meet friends from all
over the world! I have been racing for 11 years and
still going. The past few years Ive gotten
serious about my motocross career and started
training with Shannon Niday. Next year, Im
taking it to the next level by turning pro and
hopefully Ill put in good results.
Who has inspired you: Definitely my family, they
have done so much for me over the years to come
this far and tells me to never give up! And of
course my friend Ashley Fiolek. Were so much
alike and Im glad theres another deaf
girl that does the same thing I do!
Any sponsors you have: I would like to thank my
sponsors, Rock River Powersports, Fly Racing, FMF
Racing, Shannon Niday Mx Schools, Merge Racing,
Shock Sox, Speed Graffix, Scott Goggles, EVS, Cycle
Nano, JM Racing, Motorex Oils, Berm & Most
importantly my Family and friends!
Accomplishments: I have won 5 National
Championship over the years. The biggest
Accomplishment was winning Loretta Lynns Last
year in the Girls class. Hard work truly does pay
Advice to other women riders out there: Just
make sure youre having fun and dont
listen to any of the boys that says we cant ride..
we can do anything that the boys can do!
Favorite quote: These are some of my favorite
quotes ever: A deaf person can do anything a
hearing person can do, except hear. &
I hated every minute of training, but I
said, Dont quit. Suffer now and live
the rest of your life as a champion -Muhammad
