Profile

My name is Taylor Higgins and I’m 17 years old. I’m also deaf! Born and raised in Mesquite, TX!

 

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 since.

I continue to ride because I love it! You always have fun! It’s 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 I’ve gotten serious about my motocross career and started training with Shannon Niday. Next year, I’m taking it to the next level by turning pro and hopefully I’ll 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. We’re so much alike and I’m glad there’s 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 Lynn’s Last year in the Girls class. Hard work truly does pay off.

Advice to other women riders out there: Just make sure you’re having fun and don’t 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, “Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion” -Muhammad Ali
