805 Beer presents Inverted Perspective, a deep dive into Vicki Golden’s powerful rise to the top of the motocross world. Our latest original film, Inverted Perspective uncovers just what it is that makes Vicki tick. Unbeatable on the track, unrelenting on the ramp, and unwavering in her pursuit to be better every day, Vicki has inspired an entire generation of young women riders who now have someone to look up to.
Vicki Golden’s decorated career as a five-time X Games gold medalist begins as innocently as most. Family days at the track sparked a desire to be the best rider she could be. Eventually, her dedication to all things two wheels and unwillingness to be put in a separate category elevated her to every conversation in the moto world. Don’t believe us? Well, you can hear from 805 Authenticos Tyler Bereman and Seth Brisson, and riders like Jeremy “Twitch” Stenberg, Caroline Buchanan, and more in the full film below. Make sure you turn on the TV, invite your friends over, and crack open some cold ones before hitting play.
Vicki’s the first woman to qualify for Supercross, the first woman to medal in X Games Best Whip, and the first woman to be invited to Red Bull Imagination. But her achievements didn’t just appear one day. Her decorated career had to start somewhere.
Her father’s passion for dirt bikes and family days at the track as a young girl sparked a life-long journey to the top of freestyle motocross. Ever since she first hopped on a bike, she knew she wanted to press herself harder into being the best rider she could be. Years later, her trophies, accomplishments, and time spent on the podium are concrete proof that all that hard work paid off.
Motocross is beautifully, painstakingly subjective. Everyone has an opinion, and it’s a sport that certainly isn’t short of critics. But there are a charmed few who can hop on a bike and, no matter the day, do something that would make even the most grizzled cynic say, “Oh, wow.” Vicki Golden is one of these few. Give Vicki the proper amount of credit in text alone is not only a ridiculous task, but also it’d be a complete disservice to her. Vicki has to be seen to be believed. Thankfully, a video speaks for itself and helps keep things within a mandated word count. And that’s just what we’ve been lucky to create with her here.
“My friends are the best in the world at what they do so I’m going to make damn sure that I stay to that standard and that I keep pushing it until I can’t push anymore.” — Vicki Golden
