Growing up it was "Little D" and when racing was "Daring Dawna". Now I don’t really have one!
Where I live:
East Bay, CA....head towards the corn!
Curve Unit Status:
Bikes I own:
Two 2021 Aprilia RS660s (one for the street and one for the track), and a Honda CRF 230 for the dirt.
What got me into riding:
I was a former professional Hydro-Cross racer. Now that I’m not riding the water every weekend, it was time for a new hobby.
Why I ride:
It quiets my head and helps me relax.
Why I ride with Curve Unit:
Because the girls are amazing - like family.
Favorite place to ride:
Alone at night, anywhere.
Other interests outside of riding:
Anything with water, camping, hiking, writing poetry, and reading.
Fun fact about me:
I’m a stroke survivor and at one point was told I may never walk or talk normal again. But I like to prove people wrong. Some may wish I’d stop talking - but sorry, I’m an only child and I talk a lot (but don’t mean to)! I was 2nd in the world for the Pro Women’s Runabout and 5th in the world for Expert Men’s Limited for top places. I raced for over 20 years holding state, regional, and national titles. And I’ve been in a commercial and on a game show!
One of my useless talents is:
Tying a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue.
My walkup song:
“I’m a Bitch” by Meredith Brooks
