In episode 2 of Gieger Goes, professional women’s motocross athlete Tarah Gieger heads to Austin, Texas for the X Games where she meets up with longtime friends Travis Pastrana, Malcolm McCassy, Twitch, and Dirtshark and then races to a second place overall in the Women’s EnduroX.
Tarah Gieger is putting her body through the ringer as she wraps up her 20s. Knocking on the door of 30, the fastest moto chick from Puerto Rico has decided to hit the big 3-0 as hard as she possibly can, taking her passions and rolling them together into one year of gnarly behavior that would make a lesser citizen weak in the knees.
Not many fans realize what a versatile athlete Gieger has always been, if the various motorcycle accolades didn’t already communicate that. Born in Puerto Rico, Gieger was an avid surfer for most of her life, and even still surfs at dangerously close to professional level. She also finds time to compete in downhill mountain biking, as well.
This year, knocking on the door of the big 3-0, Gieger refuses to slow down as she competes in moto, downhill MTB, and casually prepares herself for a 32-mile paddleboard race in Hawaii, with cameras following her along for the ride. With help from Vurb Moto, Gieger presents the viewing public with Gieger Goes, a series about her life of adventure on two wheels and just about anything else she can get her hands on.
