Background

I rode dirt bikes a little bit as a kid but then didn't ride for a long time. Finally got into the sport a few years ago and started racing motocross with a vet racing club, and I'm having a blast!

I work in the construction industry; I manage a design and engineering department for a company that makes pre-manufactured structural components for residential and light commercial construction.

Motocross has been a great sport for me in too many ways to list and despite the occasional injury that just comes with the territory, riding and racing motocross will be an activity that I participate in for the rest of my life. Casual ride days with your buddies are always great, and so are those days when you take gate drops, bang bars and ride hard to the checkers.

Highlights

I won my class championship in my rookie season and got promoted from Beginner to Novice. I'm hoping that with a program which includes consistent practice and an effective fitness regimen, I can continue to make gains in speed, win races and promote to yet faster race classes.

A big part of what makes it all possible for amateurs like me to continue to participate and compete in this sport is the help we get from companies who sponsor athletes, so a big thank you to all of my past, current and future sponsors here on Hookit and elsewhere for helping to make it happen. For my part, I always do what I can to be a good ambassador, on and off the track, for the sport and my sponsors.

Goals

I'm just working on continuing to learn and improve as a rider. I'd like to find a little more speed to start getting some podiums in my new class. I'm not too far off, I got a 3rd in a moto, 4th overall a few weeks ago.
