Do You Want To Ride?????
Thank you for viewing.
Well I have moved to Idaho Falls Idaho and have been looking for a place to challenge my skills along with myself in the dirt bike racing series, I found just that place. The racing out here is a little different. They don't have the Enduro racing that we had back in Michigan (which I miss) its called Endurance racing and is very new to this area. The first race they had 3 people end up with some broken bones. The next race is coming soon and I look forward to participating in the challenge. Of course my goal will be to become first again. This would be a great honor to myself if I can stand up to the challenge at hand.
Story on my start
A little bit about myself. I am an energetic go-getter. I started racing in 2007 in the District 14 Family Enduro Series. My first race was new and exciting, it was a learn as you go. First check point, I was a little fast and lost two points, not good. But after that, I started to get the hang of what I needed to do. At the start of the second lap, I was johnny on the spot. I thought. Until the times where faster, the speeds were faster, the checkpoints were harder to reach. The next thing I knew (not much) I was flying through the air backwards heading for a tree. I will not go into details but it did hurt, I thought I was done and wanted to go home. After proceeding, I regained consciousness and finished the race as fast as I could. Finishing and not thinking I did that good. I loaded up the bike and equipment, waited to see the results. Well to my surprise (a big one) I finished first in my class. This is how I started my Enduro career.
Without the help of my friends, family and my sponsors, I would not be able to take my racing to the next level. For the 2008 season, I acquired a new left over 2006 CRF250X from Honda along with new sponsors.
New & returning Sponsors for this year are FMF Racing, Bel-Ray oils, Motor Tabs, SixSixOne, The X Brand Goggles, Acerbic and still working with new sponsors as we speak.
Thank you and look for updates on this site. New for 2008. Bike is race ready now. We are looking for the finish line now.
