Jordan Jarvis AMA Women MX National Champion 2018

Jordan Jarvis has set bench-mark for racing Women’s Pro Motocross in America, becoming 2018 WMX National Champion, becoming the first Women to be invited and race the Monster Energy Cup 250 All star class and go for first Women to make the mains in SX and MX Pro Nationals.

Still at high school, total 17 years of age, Jordan fits the juggle of maintaining all important school grades with training, riding and racing to knock off the MX career goals one year at a time.

Jordan states: ‘My focus in 2018 was to try and win the WMX and work on getting my Pro points for men’s outdoor motocross. I knew winning the WMX was going to be tough with me being one of the youngest in the class. But I like a challenge so it did not phase me too much. I was there to race, to me it did not matter who it was against’.

Having put in hard work coming through the ranks racing Minis and Junior classes at Loretta’s, Jordan entered Arenacross which led onto racing Supercross- not the traditional path for Women Riders.

# 30: ‘I originally started off racing Arenacross when I was probably 13 or 14. With the hope of eventually racing SX. After of few years of riding AX, my next goal was racing Monster Cup. After accomplishing that goal, I also became the first woman to be invited and race the Monster Energy Cup in the 250 All star class. I realized that no women has made a main event in SX. So I have now set that as a goal for me in a few years’.

Competing at 2019 Supercross Championship at Daytona Speedway in Amateur classes: 250A, College Boys and Women, Jordan has plenty of verve to mix it up racing guys and girls- over rollers, table tops, whoop and rhythm sections, corners and starts.

Shifting the focus post March to training and racing AMA Amatuer MX National Area and Regional Qualifiers for Loretta’s, Jordan has mixed feelings on the progression of Women’s Pro Championship being relegated to single Series at Loretta Lynns.

# 30: ‘With WMX now being at Loretta Lynn’s and it just being a single race series, most of my focus is now centered around Loretta’s. I am aiming to qualify for the Women’s WMX class and either the 250 A Pro Sport or the Open A Pro Sport’.

It is very unfortunate where WMX is right now. It’s especially bad for the WMX racers like myself. There isn’t really anything for the women in the US right now. Personally, I am thinking of coming to Europe to race some of the WMX Rounds in the future’.

With changes of WMX status in America, and talented riders of Jordan Jarvis calibre, Europe’s WMX beckons. In between, a few more goals will be ticked off- racing SX as far as she can, along with making Pro Nationals in points with support of friends, family and #30’s all out depth of drive to race.

#30: In both MX and SX, I hope to be the first female to make a main in the men’s pro class. I like that Europe’s WMX is treated like an actual pro class. I would prefer riding a pro track than an amateur track and that is what Europe’s WMX offers. I am actually planning on coming to Europe to race in the next year or two.
