As a needer of speed and lover of all things fast, I found her pretty cool, though she was unable to participate in Friday's show because of some serious injuries suffered in a September accident preparing for the tour.She also competed in many prestige’s motocross events, such as The Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National and The Walton Trans Can Canadian Amateur National.In 2006 Jolene would have a large part in creating the Canadian Women’s National Championship’s, a coast-to-coast national series that would mirror the opportunities of the WMA in the U. She would commemorate the event by winning the series and becoming the first Canadian Women’s National Champion.2006 would be a landmark year in Jolene’s life.During recent tryouts in California of the "slingshot," a new winch mechanism that enables performers on wheels to achieve high speed in little time going into a ramp, Van Vugt shattered her forehead, nose, eye socket, right arm and jaw.This week, she'll undergo full reconstruction of her orbital socket so that she can fully see again out of her left eye.Jolene continues to sacrifice many things to travel the world and make a living riding her dirt bike.
