Story: I started riding at the age of 3 on a Yamaha PW50. My dad would have me ride over progressively bigger timber and logs. I never raced at a young age but always trail rode and did technical riding. I went through two 70’s/80’s vintage XRs before I got a KTM 200 at the age of 12. I got a job to pay for this, still requiring a lot of help from my parents on the purchase. This was a big step in equipment, but the size did not hold me back, although when the bike was new, it fell on me while washing it, breaking my foot. To this day I hesitate to wash a dirt bike. I started racing this bike in the B class the next year, 1999 and did alright; I just did not take it seriously, only competing for fun.
I began to get faster and more competitive. In 2003 I decided to compete in the National Enduro Series, where I won my first national Championships, 200B and Overall “B”. Ever since I have followed the series with the support of my parents and some sponsors, always keeping up with school and working whenever I could to pay for the expenses.
After winning my championship I advanced to the “A” class and seemed to compete in the most competitive classes in the series. In the 200 A class then 250 A, I was racing against guys a little older and more experienced, on their way to the Pro class as I was. This kept me pushing every weekend. In 2005 I finished 13th overall in the points from the 250 A class, earning a national number. I am now a consistent top overall finisher in the National Enduro Series as a factory Husaberg Rider. I have recently began contesting the OMA National Cross Country Series which is very fun and offers great publicity. The courses are always technical, which I enjoy and consider an advantage.
My 2008 season was cut short in June after a incident while practicing which resulted in severing my ACL. This was crushing but I am moving on and will be back full time racing for 2009. During my time off I have tried to finish as much schooling as possible to lighten my load in the spring of 2009 before I graduate.Born: 6-26-87
