Background

Christopher's grandparents purchased an ATV for him in 2009 and he loved it! As parents of a disabled child we were worried about how he would do but he immediately showed natural talent and good riding techniques. On August 23, 2010 he raced his first motocross event on his 70cc Panther with other built 90cc mini quads. He raced every event from there on out in that series and placed 5th overall. November 2010 we gave him a 2008 APEX 90cc MXR Pro mini quad. After he learned to trust his bike and got comfortable he began to really open up as a mini quad racer. He has really come along way placing 2nd overall in the local SX Series for 2011. He has raced a total of 59 events in 6 states since 8/23/10, put in countless hours of practice time, & has raced in 5 nationals to date with 4 being in the 2012 season. He’s a consistent, aggressive, & strong rider. Since getting another & faster quad in June 2012 he has gotten 31 holeshots out of 37 motos. He pushes himself out of his comfort zone to get to the front and to be a better racer almost every time he races! Ask anyone from the local MX track about him & they’ll tell you he’s turning heads!
