It's funny how sports give you goals. The height of these goals are often only understood by others who participate in your sport. But sometimes, the accomplishment of your feat is great enough for others to even recognize it. This past Saturday I did the largest jump at our track, Mesa Motocross Park. I did it in on practice day....
Every weekend at the motocross park new people come into the park with the same mission:  To learn how to ride a dirt bike. Many of these faces do not know what a clutch is or how to even make the bike turn on. In fact, many of the riders have never driven a manual car and have not even...

My parents recently came to visit and we had a great time! We didnt have a normal family vacation. Instead of making trips to the beach or visits to the mall, we decided as a family to do "motorcycle projects." We made a hefty list of goals, and worked to achieve each one. One of these endeavors was to rehabilitate...

I have been intimidated by this jump for a looooooong time.... but I finally did it! Guess I just needed a little encouragement! Thanks to my mentor Philip Alford for doing just that. Now on to the next challenge!
Be strong. Be beautiful. Feel life. Give life. Be humble. Be passionate. Be yourself. People appreciate people who show their soul. In a world so guarded, so scared to express themselves it becomes "unique" to meet someone who doesn't hold to those same standards. As the manager of a race track, I continually meet new people. As the track is...
Coffee, it's the first thing to my day and companion for the first few hours. In retrospect, it is the fuel which has allowed me to (mentally) function at any job I've had. While there is some dependency on it, It is entirely a mental thing. If I don't have my coffee I become uptight and edgy. Is that...
Yesterday I had an epic crash on my Dirtbike. The kind that knocks the wind outta yourself and leaves ur world spinning. Despite this I got back up. I not only got back up, I got back on the track and kept riding. It's so important to never succumb to failure. I was lucky to not break anything so...
Upon slamming your helmet against the ground, do you crawl to your truck and call it a day? Or do you brush off the dirt and get back on your bike? What molds us is not how bad the crash is, but how we respond to it. Whatever you have failed at, even a bad breakup, your attitude towards...
Starting my mornings at the track is therapeutic and a remedy for any of lives upcoming anxiety. While it is not your typical image of "nature" it is equally as relaxing. There is no noise, its pure solitude. The only noise is what you read there to be. I love this quote by John Keats,  "The poetry of earth...
1 year ago I left my picture perfect corporate job to pursue my dream of working in the motorcycle industry. And what an unbelievable ride it has been!! There are no words to describe the roller coaster that has been the last year. One thing I've def learned is motocross track operation is nothing more than a labor of...
I'm always searching for how to better our motocross track and race series. Here is a nice link on some guidelines to keep in mind when preparing for a motocross race: Click Here I also have some advice for the newbies entering the sport: Preparation: This may seem obvious.... But you should always train for a race. If you are just learning...
  There is another side to a business that others never see... the work that goes on behind the scenes. This work, behind the veil, is the foundation to the show. The people exhausted from hours on the job. The staff covered in oil trying to get the equipment to run, those responding to the never ending social media contacts,...
Congrats to my young friend Ananda Lopez on doing her first jump!! She did her first jump a week ago but I'm still so proud! She started riding a year ago when I introduced her family to the sport. Thanks to her perseverance, and support of her family, she's been steadily advancing in her riding. This is why motosports...
