Background

Started riding when I was 9 yrs old, racing competitively at 12 in motocross. Growing up on an 1100 acre dairy farm in upstate NY afforded my dad and grandfather the luxury of building a track that grew as I did. By the time I was 16 I had a full out 1.5 mile MX track with all the goodies. Doubles, triples, tables, whoops.... it had it all. Once I started racing at a full time level as a top amateur my grandfather put up lights so I could practice any time I wanted.
Competed quite a few years, 12 roughly, on the national circuit trying to break out and get the "dream ride". It was an honor and a priveledge to be on the same track as my heros of the day, John Dowd, Mike Larrocco, David Bailey, Jeff Ward, Doug Henry..... the list is extensive. I wanted so bad what they had and I tried hard. Then came the point when I had to put the dream away. In 2001 after my 9th knee surgery and turning 35 I retired from MX. I sat out a season and it drove me insane. I picked up arena-cross as a hobby but the jumps became too much and the young kids were dangerously competitve. I picked up off-road racing, GNCC/harescrambles, and am now in my 9th year competition. I run multiple series that add up to about 30 to 35 races a season. I love the sport, I have fun with it and I've had to learn a whole new style of riding. What worked in MX can kill you in the woods. I only wish I would've picked up on woods racing while I was young and racing MX.

Highlights

Competed in hundreds of MX amatuer nationals starting at the age of 12 thru my late 20's. Made the step to Pro-AM MX in my 20's trying to make something happen. A few podiums but no significant offers. Retired from MX in 2001 and started Off-Road Harescrambles and GNCC's in 2003. Numerous plaques and podiums in the amatuer and expert ranks. I currently contest the new JDay Offroad series in the Northeast, that is much like a WORCS format of Woods, MX and Extreme, and also compete in select GNCC events on the national amateur level.

Goals

Win the expert "A" Class in the 40+ division and try to qualify for a couple national MX events.
