Any Oregon Sunday is a 10 minute documentary snapshot of the diverse community of womxn riders we have here in Oregon. Tiffany rides across the state on her Triumph Bonneville meeting Kylee Sweeten, a champion trials bike rider in the Oregon High Desert; Ashley Volner, a versatile dune and moto racer out at the Dunes; and Jada Noriyuki, a dirt bike rider at Brown’s Camp in the Tillamook Forest. Although each rider’s background and story is different they all do it for the love of the sport and desire to immerse themselves in the beauty of Oregon.
In the past ten years Jada Noriyuki has bought and sold 15 bikes and ridden them throughout the west coast of North America. Her intent to ride as many different types of bikes as possible has allowed her to be at home in the dirt or street, with little time for cars. The only 4 wheels Jada has ever owned is a 1986 El Camino, and it often hauls 2 more wheels to the Tillamook State Forest. Jada moved to Portland to attend art school in 2004 and currently resides in a quiet condo in Beaverton with “Dub,” her handsome Manx cat, 5 bikes, and has been working at Nike as a graphic designer for the past 7 years.
Kylee Sweeten has been riding motorcycles since she was five years old and started riding trials at 14 (although she had done some trials growing up it didn’t stick with her till later). Kylee comes from a family of riders and is what has helped her to grow into the badass she is today; her dad was one of the top 5 pro trials riders in the US in the 90s and a motocross riders in the 80s, her two older brothers are trials riders and offroad disciplines (moto, singletrack, hard enduro), and her parents even met while riding motocross! Kylee competed in her first national competition in 2015 and hasn’t stopped competing since. 2020 will be her 6th season of riding trails on a national level.
Ashley Volner has been riding dirt bikes for 3 years now and likes to ride the dunes, track and trails. She just completed her first year racing and competed in the ArenaCross series and the Oregon State series taking 1st in both. Ashley is mostly self taught first learning to ride out on the Florence dunes. When not riding she can be found hiking with her pup or working as a lab tech at a medical clinic
