Rider of the Month - Dominique Daffé
Determined moto girl in a male-dominated sport!
Born and raised in Alberta. I grew up going riding out in the mountains almost every weekend with my Dad. It wasn't until I was about 18 that I decided I wanted to try out motocross and once I did, I never looked back. Since I've started racing motocross I've seen myself be able to accomplish things I've worked hard for and I have met a ton of awesome people and I can't imagine not being involved in this amazing sport.

Accomplishment you are most proud of: Earning the number 10 plate for the Women's West series last year and the most improved rider award.
Something people don’t know about you: I used to love horses and still do but always wanted to have my own horse to ride all the time growing up and when I was 15 I broke my wrist horseback riding in the middle of riding season and couldn't ride all summer. I haven't been back on a horse since!
Message to kids: Things don't just happen you have to go out and work for them so if you want to reach a goal with your riding just keep working at it, stay positive and good things will come!
