Maria Forsberg: Three-time X-Games Gold Medalist

Maria Forsberg, a two-time American Motocross Association (AMA) Female Athlete of the year and three-time X-Games Gold Medalist, takes a rational look at her life as a professional Enduro X rider.

In her X-Games Gold medal competition she battled the top women in the world in Munich, Germany. To watch this race you can see the endurance, balance and grit it takes to compete in Enduro X.

At just 25 years old, Forsberg balances her career, her marriage, and a full-time job as an electrician at Boeing. She credits her winning ways to the fullness of her life.
