Vicki Golden has made a career out of breaking barriers and challenging the status quo. A three-time X Games gold medalist in Moto X Racing, Golden became the first woman to compete against the men in any FMX discipline, finishing with the bronze medal in Moto X Best Whip at X Games L.A. 2013. This year, Golden became the first woman to be fully supported by the Metal Mulisha, and she recently became the first woman to officially earn her supercross license after a format change in the series allowed her to race in arenacross qualifying events against men.
