WSMX Welcomes New Trainer Marissa Markelon-Northeast Region-CT

I started riding a PW 50 at the young age of 3. I raced my first race when I was only 4 at a local track near my house. After a few races, it was clear that I had natural talent as well as a lot of love for the sport.With the support from my family and coaching from my dad, I continued to push myself further in the sport of motocross earning many wins and regional championships. In my beginning years at LorettaLynn’s, I had consistently finished in the top 10. In 2010 I finished 3rd overall at Loretta’s. At 19 years old, in 2011 was my first year competing in the entire 8 round WMX Professional NationalChampionship Series. I finished 6th overall, staying inside the top 10 in a majority of the rounds. My best finish was at Southwick in moto 1, finishing in 3rd place. To make the season even better, I wasvoted rookie of the year in the AMA WMX series. Motocross is my life and I can’t begin to think of anything more exhilarating than to help other riders achieve goals that are very similar to my own.  You can reach Marissa at 203-751-2519 or
