SHIFT Signs Sarah Whitmore - Dirt Rider Magazine

Morgan Hill, CA - Women's motocross is bigger and better than ever and Shift has jumped into the fray by signing top AMA/WMA competitor Sarah Whitmore to sport their new line of women's race gear for the 2008 season.Sarah may be new to Shift, but she's definitely no stranger to the brand. "I have been a big fan of Shift for years and I actually won my class at Loretta Lynn's back in 1998 in Shift gear that I bought!, said Whitmore. "When I saw that Shift was making women's gear, I knew it would be the perfect fit!""Shift has always had a unique and aggressive style", said Shift Brand Manager Brett Nicholas, "which is why we've waited to find a rider who's equally as energized and independent. Sarah is the nicest girl you could meet off the track, but when the gate drops, you better watch out because this girl knows how to twist the throttle!"Whitmore has numerous Loretta Lynn's titles to her credit and has also claimed several national wins in the women's pro championship. For 2008, Sarah has made some big changes in her efforts to take the title including a switch to Suzukis, where she will be running #89 in honor of her Grandmother.Shift MX
