Background

Vann has been riding motorcycles since he was 3 years old, but didn’t start racing until he was 10. Because the Honda of Houston Amateur race team was managed by his father, he was able to start racing the amateur nationals. Vann never really got any results at these big races, because he never really took it serious. At about 14 years of age he decided that he no longer wanted to be a mid pack rider. Hanging around with some of the future stars of motocross and super cross really showed him that there was a future for those that worked hard. The Honda of Houston amateur program had kids such as Josh Grant, Tommy Hahn, Wil Hahn, Jake Wiemer, Jessica Patterson, James Marshall and Lance Vincent, just to name a few go through their program. These were all riders that Vann looked up to and he decided that he wanted to dedicate himself to the sport and make a name. He has skyrocketed his way to one of the top amateurs in the sport. He was able to do this while still going to public school and in December of 2011 was able to graduate early with honors. Vann is a strong natural leader. He has the skills to engage with all types of people – especially excited to engage with fans - and makes it a priority to engage the younger enthusiast.

Highlights

After winning a championship at the Loretta Lynn’s Amateur National in 2011, he moved up to the A class, and has continued to improve. He has also been racing in the pro class locally and has won many races over, some athletes that have great results to their credit. Currently he has a full time trainer, and rides 4 times a week, plus he has been racing every weekend. He also works out either with his trainer or by himself 5 to 6 days a week. The rougher the track, the better he rides!

This past year - Vann was spotlighted on TV (speed channel and NBC Sports), most major Motocross publications, as well as other popular dirt bike websites.

Goals

Win Loretta's in A Class and turn professional full time
