Kacy Martinez and Rily Ellinger are included in the Women of Off-Road article.
The July issue of AMA's American Motorcyclist starts arriving this week to tens of thousands of mailboxes across America and Motorcycle Superstore's Rachel Gutish is featured on the cover sporting the coveted Motorcycle Superstore Bell Moto 9 Carbon Helmet.
Rachel is part of the FMF/RPM/KTM/Maxxis Racing Team out of Lynden, WA, and is not only an Off-Road racing specialist but is also an honor student who just completed high school. She recently won a Bronze medal at the X Games in Austin, TX, and she will be representing the United States at this year's ISDE in Sardina, Italy.
To say that Rachel exemplifies the meaning of dedication, hard work and determination is an understatement. In addition to Rachel's cover appearance, there is a page inside that provides an insight into what makes her tick.
Also included in this article are Kacy Martinez, who just wrapped up the GNCC Women's Class Championship and who won X Games Gold in Austin, and Rily Ellinger, also an X Games participant and a podium finisher at the recent Sacramento GEICO EnduroCross. Megan Blackburn, who races the AMA National Hare & Hound Series and Mandi Mastin, an ISDE specialist, are also included in the article.

"I knew American Motorcyclist was doing a story on women racers because they had Shan Moore interview Mandi and me at the Rad Dad National Enduro earlier this year. Later, they sent a photographer out to my place for a photo shoot. I just thought that it was for the story and had no idea I was going to be on the cover. I didn't know until a fellow racer called and congratulated me.
