Babes Ride Out

Stance Moto

Stance Moto is Coming to Babes in the Dirt 3

SponsorsAshmore Ellis

We are thrilled to announce Stance Moto will be at Babes in the Dirt 3. Feel the difference in performance and comfort with Stance's new line of women's moto socks. Once an overlooked piece of rider equipment, Stance changes your perception of moto socks with art and technology that hone in on the specific needs of an MX athlete and enthusiast. Stance's line of moto socks feature an elastic arch support and engineered compression to provide lasting fit and support. Each pair is knit with a custom blend of proprietary fibers that offer durability, superior moisture wicking, and breathability to help feet stay cool and dry during even the hottest of rides.

Meet Mikey Rangel of Stance

People, Roll CallAshmore Ellis

When Mikey showed up at Stance I was excited, this meant our moto category was about to make some major waves. He soon became one of my favorite humans at Stance due to his sense of humor and ability to be incredibly positive and encouraging to those around him. This past year Stance Moto has come out with Women's Fusion Moto socks, and to us, that is a big deal as it's a testament that women's technical gear is taking a shift in the right direction and becoming a focal point. When we asked him to be a part of Babes in the Dirt 2, Mikey didn't hesitate. 

Stance Moto is covering the group campsite fee this year, hosting a s'mores party on Sat night, giving away 150 ladies moto socks on site to the first 150 at their booth on Sat am, AND bring the address of your friend cause you'll have the chance to pick a FREE pair of women's lifestyle socks to send to a buddy who couldn't make it (Stance booth open Sat am after mandatory riders meeting).

Get to know Mikey and make sure to give this guy a high five if you see him, he deserves it!

Name: Mikey Rangel

Tell us about yourself:

I work at Stance Socks as the Category Directory for Moto and Bike and live in Laguna Niguel. I spend quite a few weekends out of the year at the races but when I’m not on the road for work I’m most likely out in the hills on my mountain bike or as close to the beach as possible. 

How did you get into riding?

I initially got into riding/racing through my pops who ran race teams my entire childhood. It was cool being able to grow up with athletes staying at the house and being surrounded by the lifestyle of those guys and the team's long night grinds wrenching away. He had me start with BMX for quite a few years then made the transition to motocross my early teens and that has led to where I’m at now 

Where is your favorite place to ride?

I don’t know if I can say I have a favorite place in specific. I more just enjoy riding when I am around my buds and the track or trail conditions are good. I don’t ride as much anymore, so anytime I’m out there I’m stoked. 

Two stroke of 4 stroke? 

4-stroke 

Do you have a favorite bike? 

KTM lended me a 350 and it was badass on the track or trail riding, but growing up in the 90’s Factory Honda was the team to beat so I still have a soft spot for Red.

Best riding adventure?

No pressure situations like camping and trail riding as a kid or some trips to Glamis when I was working at Fox. For a track, I’d say Mammoth MX is a fun trip.

What is it like to work for Stance? 

Stance is epic, the culture at the office is something I’ve never experienced in my career. They’ve recruited a solid crew here and everyone is so damn smart! My day to day typically shifts based on where we are in the seasonal go to market process. My focus is split across all aspects of the business whether it be Product,  M&D, Marketing/PR, or Sales for both Moto and Bike categories.

How did you first hear about Babes Ride Out and what did you think?

I first heard about BRO from working alongside Ashmore here at Stance, and I think the event and brand are awesome. I really support the overall intent of just organically rallying groups of women to enjoy a shared passion of riding.  

What do you have planned for us at Babes Ride Out 2?

Ashmore said I’m not allowed at Babes Ride Out! But for Babes in the Dirt we’ll be out there gifting some Moto and Casual in an activation call “A Pair to Share”. We plan to host a rad little S’more campfire hangout as well on Sat. 

What does Stance Moto have planned in 2016 

Babes in the Dirt! We actually just launched our second season so we’ll continue to try and make waves in the market and further establish ourselves in the Moto world. Aside from that, just continue to bring a fresh new vibe to the sport.
