At only 25 years old, Tarah Gieger already owns a strong legacy in the motocross world. She has countless podiums on her resume, including a gold medal at the very first X Games Women's Moto X event. And any of you guys who think you could take her had better think twice; Tarah's survived a shattered pelvis and a broken neck, so she's tough enough - and skilled enough - to leave you in the dust.

She's not all broken bones and dirt, though - she's got a soft spot for dogs and would probably rather be in a bikini than a full set of gear. She let us in on her faves recently so we can get a better glimpse of what's behind the goggles...

Favorite movie:
V for Vendetta. Comedies come and go in my life, but I always love to watch this movie.

Favorite book:
I really like reading all of Dan Brown's books.

Favorite TV show:
The Office, hands down. I have to watch at least an hour of it every day I'm home.

I could eat pudding for every meal of the day if it weren’t frowned upon.

Favorite magazine:
Velo News. It's a cycling magazine.

Favorite song or artist:
"Flux" by Bloc Party.

Favorite animal:
Dog. I don’t like traveling, only because I can't have a dog since I’m never home.

Purple. It goes well with black, which is my second favorite color.

Christmas. I like wearing sweet Christmas sweaters
