Tarah Gieger Wins Second Consecutive X Games Moto X Racing Silver Medal
2011 saw the inaugural running of the Women’s Moto X Gace in the Summer X Games. The top three finishers: Vicki Golden, Tarah Gieger, Livia Lancelot, in that order. This year’s top three finishers? Vicki Golden, Tarah Gieger, Livia Lancelot, in that order. The trio repeated their performances from a year prior as Oakley’s Gieger secured her second consecutive X Games Moto X Racing silver medal.
The Puerto Rican, Gieger is the most decorated athlete in Women’s Moto X history. She pushed the tempo, always staying close behind Golden, but ultimately she finished 7.16 seconds behind the race winner. She held off the third place finisher Lancelot by just 2.08 seconds.
“I have lots of respect for Vicki and a second against her is as good as a gold,” Gieger said. “I look forward to X Games every year and it’s one of my favorite events.”
Congratulations to Tarah on her continued success at the X Games and another silver medal performance.
