Shea doing more cool stuff! What an opportunity… Good luck girls! #Repost @sheaholbrook ・・・ I’ve been fortunate to be involved in many amazing opportunities thanks to my family, friends, partners and by having damn good work-ethic. Super pumped to announce I’ll be helping out @firecycle, Denise Mueller, 15-time cyclist champion in her pursuit to break the paced bicycle land speed record of 167 mph on the Bonneville Salt Flats in September! I’ll be driving a Range Rover Sport SVR, fully race prepped while Denise drafts near inches away over several miles to reach 168 mph to break the record! Not only will Denise be the first woman to attempt this, we’ll be the first female team of this kind. This is definitely something out of left field and I’ve honestly never been so excited to help someone achieve such an “unbelievable” goal. Denise is perceived to be the best female cyclist in the country, if not the world and has the stamina to compete alongside the worlds best male cyclist. Not only is she a total badass but she’s one of the kindess and coolest people I’ve ever met. I wouldn’t do this and put myself in a position if I didn’t think she (we) were capable. Can’t wait to be in the Guinness Book of World Records with you Denise!

There are a LOT of women involved in stage rally here in the USA, but it is relatively foreign to many other types of racers. So, what do you want to know… what questions do you have?!

Anything from… “I don’t understand rally!” to “What does the co-driver do?” We’re working on a project to bring you the answers to YOUR questions, so please ask any questions you have below!

GHG was honored to participate in Fidelco’s 5th Annual Ride for Independence. As reported by CT’s Fox News:

BLOOMFIELD – Six-hundred motorcycles took to the streets to raise money to help provide guide dogs to the blind, especially military veterans.

The fifth annual Fidelco Ride for Independence followed a 50-mile scenic route through Farmington Valley with a police escort, before bikers headed back to Fidelco for lunch, music, and K-9 demonstrations.

Money raised goes to benefit the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation, which trains the guide dogs and provides them to those in need.

For more information on how to donate, volunteer or apply for a guide dog, click here to go to the Fidelco website and click here to visit the Facebook page.

We are excited to hear from our good chum, Erika Detota, about her upcoming rally on July 17th and 18th. Check out all the details below!

Chelsmford, MA: Team RallyErika of Erika Detota and Mary Warren will compete this week at the 25th anniversary of New England Forest Rally (NEFR). The surprising field of almost 70 teams has some big names among them this year including David Higgins, Ken Block, Travis Pastrana, Ramana Lagemann, Brendan Reeves and Gustavo Yacaman. Competition will be at its highest in years at this running, with several open class teams shooting for the top spot.

Headquartered in Newry, Maine at Sunday River Resort, the two day event will take place July 17-18. Known as “unpredictable”, the gravel roads feature 120 challenging competitive stage miles among Maine and New Hampshire, which include a return to some smooth and twisty stages run in the past. Erika’s first attempt at NEFR was the first gravel event she completed in her two wheel drive Subaru Impreza, then with coach Jason Smith navigating. “It has been a long time since I have been on these roads and will be a first for Mary, so our plan is to stay clean and hope to put in good times.” Continue reading
