PULL Magazine|October 2019
2018 National #1 Girl Payton Ridenour.

PULL: This year, you’ve been concentrating more on Jr. Women - right? How has that been going for you?

P-Nut: This year has been amazing so far in the Junior Women class! Every moto in this class could very well be a Grands main, so it’s definitely a challenge. Racing this class has given me more opportunities to progress since the competition is so tough, and I love every moment racing against girls I get along with so well!

PULL: Working closer with Arielle Martin; what is the biggest difference in your training - compared to this year and in your past?

P-Nut: Last winter my dad dedicated half of the garage to build my own gym, so having access to a full gym at my house has helped a lot. But besides that, nothing is different than the past years. I just love to ride my bike and keep raising the bar.

PULL: You’ve scored plenty of Jr. Women wins this year; which one has been the most memorable?

P-Nut: The most memorable junior women win that I’ve had this year is Louisville, Kentucky. I didn’t lose a lap all weekend and felt the best I have! Also, it was a supercross race, and I love racing on the big hill.

PULL: It seems that between you, Daleny Vaughn and the Hayes sisters, that the U.S. has some solid talent for when Alise and Brooke decide to call it a career. Do you envision yourself stepping into their shoes when that day comes?

P-Nut: I would absolutely love to step into their shoes one day, but right now I’m really enjoying getting to step beside them and continuing to learn from them. Being able to compete against elites like Alise and Brooke is an incredible opportunity, and I hope I can continue to transform into a great role model like them.

PULL: Going back to last year at the Grands - were you feeling pretty confident about winning the No.1 Girl title?

P-Nut: I was riding great all day at the Grands and seeing my name up for the title on the big screen was super cool. That for sure pumped me up, but in such a stacked field of girls anyone could win. I knew if I had a good gate that I could get down the first straight first.
