The dirt, the smells, the sick bikes and of course the people!

Favorite and least favorite part about traveling to the races?

Favorite: seeing the world!  We have been to EVERY state except Alaska & Hawaii with dirt bikes in tow!

Least Favorite: Missing out on family events, weddings, graduations, etc to chase our racing dreams!

Craziest travel story?

Our trailer loaded with seven bikes literally split in half at the tongue, sending the trailer skipping down the interstate! Thankfully bikes were all okay and nobody was injured, but we shut down the interstate in Oklahoma for an hour while they towed it out!

The most important lesson motocross teaches at a young age.

Dedication and commitment. If you don’t get in the seat time, you won’t grow in the sport and this often means missing out on a lot of “normal” kid things.  Commitment to get back out there after injury and setbacks!

Any advice for the moto moms of the future?

Give them the tools to go fast and cheer for them no matter what! If they have the competitive drive they need, you won’t need to say anything when they have a bad day because they’re already mad and ready to work harder! Let them have fun and it will come.
