My name is Jacqueline Strong and I am 19 years old. I’m from Sedona, AZ. My parents and my older brother got me on a Yamaha PW 50 with training wheels when I was 18 months old. By the time I was 3, and could ride without my training wheels, I started racing locally. Riding was always a family hobby. We rode any chance we got and it just became a natural part of my life. After I won my first national championship in ’05 at the age of 12, things took off. Sponsorships and training got more serious. Then I went pro at the age of 15 in ’08.

Ever since then, my family and I have been giving everything we have so that I could have the chance to live my dream. Most people don’t understand why we continue to sacrifice and risk so much to race motocross. Honestly I do it because I love it and there’s nothing like it. I really don’t think there’s another sport that is as risky and demands as much physical, mental and family commitment to succeed. The continuous challenge is addicting and I believe I was given a rare talent that shouldn’t be wasted.

I’m going to give it all I’ve got while I can! Hopefully along the way I can become a solid podium contender and be an inspiration to others. The best advice I can give to girls aspiring to become pro is to realize the magnitude of dedication it takes before committing. When you go pro, being fast isn’t enough. You’ve got to have the whole package and remember it becomes a business. Best of luck to you all!
