 MIKI KELLER AND WOMEN'S MOTOCROSS

If have been around the sport and WMX during the last decade, you likely know who Miki Keller is. Keller utilized her business and marketing savvy to pull Women’s Motocross back from the brink of disaster in 2000, after Elaine Ruff unexpectedly resigned from her position as President of the league. Keller spent most of the next decade developing an elite national series, one where the top women could make a living racing.

Motocross at the professional level is a very much a business. Recognizing this, Keller accomplished the goal of building a successful national series with a large fan base and the corresponding media coverage, all of which allows riders to grow and flourish within the system. This change helped the series to seek lucrative sponsorships, along with factory and industry support. With her eye on the future women’s motocross, Keller also offered amateur riders national exposure and a path to the pro ranks by holding their amateur events on the same weekend and on the same track as the professional series. Keller’s WMA Nationals continued to thrive through the 2000s, and produced national champions and fan-favorites such as Ashley Fiolek, Jessica Patterson, Tarah Gieger, Sarah Whitmore, and Vicki Golden.

In 2009, Keller received an offer from MX Sports to absorb the series, which also changed the name of the championship from “WMA” to “WMX.” After a brief stint as a consultant for the series, Miki parted ways and was off to her next challenge: getting women’s motocross racing into the wildly popular X Games.  Click here to continue reading.....
