My name is Jenna Wood and I am from Manitoulin Island, Ontario. I started riding when I was about 10 years old. My very first bike was a little Honda xr70, however I quickly wanted something bigger and faster after watching my older brother and his friends ride. After riding for about a year on a Suzuki rm85 my friends and family started saying that I should try racing because they felt as though I would be successful. I had been to many races to watch my brother and his friends ride, which really motivated me to take up racing. I would also watch the girl’s races to see what it was like, experience and competition wise. The following year I joined CMRC racing and after my first race I instantly fell in love. My friends all told me to just take it easy and that your first race is never going to be your personal best, but after that first moto they quickly took it all back. I went out there and killed it! I got a holeshot here and there and even placed 2nd overall that day for my first race against 16 girls. That year I ended up 3rd overall and have raced ever since.

The past few years I have really started to enjoy motocross more and more. I sometimes even feel as though I find myself enjoying the competition against the guys more than girls, mainly due to the women’s turnout at the gate. I am one of the only girls that ride and race where I live, which gets frustrating. Any girl out there that has been in this position understands that it is very difficult to be the only girl out there sometimes.

Within the last 3 years, I have consistently placed first overall and really want to make my way down South to even bigger and faster races. I have luckily been able to pick up a few sponsors over these past few years to help me out with my racing! I would have never gotten this far without all moto friends particularly the guys that treat me no different being a girl out there and help me out in any way they can from riding advice to helping me fix my bike.

As Ryan Sipes says it, “Motocross is dirty, it’s hot, sweaty, hard on your body…but man its fun, that’s what I do, its what I am, its what I live for.”
