MarylandMotocross.com: Hello, may I speak to Amanda Brown please?
Brown: This is Amanda Brown.
this is Ese’ from MarylandMotocross.com, got a couple minutes?
First of all, how old are you and how long have you been riding?
and four years?
been riding for 14 years?
Nooo. I’m 10 and I’ve been riding for 4 years.
Well, the people must know, what is the deal with “Rufus” the hamster on
Ummm… We put Scooby Doo on.
(Laugh) Sort of, he broke twice.
MM.com: Did you
tell Scooby what happened to Rufus?
(Confused) Ummm.. No.
might get involved. Scooby might want to know too. You really should tell
(Amused, Sarcastic) Yeah: I know.
Well, what kind of gear do you like to use and what kind of bike do you
have a Honda and I have all sorts of kinds of gear.
don’t have a favorite?
Nope, not a favorite. I use a bunch. I have what I use (laugh).
MM.com: Makes sense to me. Forget that corporate stuff. I
just want to put on my Nike shoes, running
suit, black socks, and headband, drive in my Ford Explorer to
McDonalds, get a burger with Heinz ketchup,
refill my tank at BP Amoco and get a Mocha Iced Latte from
Dunkin’ Donuts without people trying to get me involved in all
the advertising out there.
(Giggle) Whatever makes you happy.
MM.com: Who is
your favorite Pro Rider.
would have to say Windham, Kevin Windham.
to Kevin Duffy) Who’s Kevin Windham?
Hold on a sec. (Yelling) Vance! How many times do I have to tell you if
you’re going to throw a party at 3 in the afternoon, you have to keep it
hissing. Beasite Boys “Fight for your right to party” comes on)
Duffy: Did you say Windham?
Duffy gives two thumbs up)
MM.com: I just
got the confirmation that he’s da man. Moving on what’s your favorite track
and favorite event to go to?
Favorite track is Seaford. Event… I… like Texas Nationals.
That’s a popular spot with the riders. Umm…you have to explain to me,
the “Girls RULE Racing” thing,
Girls Rule Racing because dirt bike racing was originally for boys, but
girls are really getting into it now. My dad wanted to make a team for
girls, and so we did.
Amanda, I know your Dad tells you how important telling the truth is, and my
theory is that this is a revival of the Spice Girls, a plot formulated by
the British in an attempt to take back the colonies.
AB: But we’re
MM.com: That is
what they want us to believe Amanda, are you denying it then?
AB: No, I’m
not denying it.
MM.com: Hah, so
it’s true then?
MM.com: Tell us
about the Honda commercial you were in.
It was loooots of fun. My friends were there and Ricky Carmichael was
really nice to us. Lots of people and lots of fun.
MM.com: If you
had any advice for those new to the sport, what would it be?
AB: Keep your
elbows up, when you stand up. Put you foot out at the corner. Give it all
you can. Try your best and never give up.
dad is Dale Brown and he races also. Do you think the fact that both of you
are riders makes you closer?
Especially since one Christmas he told me to go feed your dog and waiting
for me in the garage was my first ever dirt bike. I asked if I could ride
it and when I got on it, I ran into the fence (giggle)
Amanda thank you for your time and validating my Spice Girl theory, we look
forward to seeing you at the track.
AB: Okay, see
