Small description as to why you chose to race the Kenda AMA National Enduro Series:
I got into woods racing after I graduated college.  Before that I only raced motocross.  I liked the format of Enduros more than anything – I like getting as much seat time as possible while conquering some really cool terrain.  I’ve got an awesome group of buddies I race with #teamramod.  Traveling to each race is like a mini vacation.

Your favorite race so far:
Dragons Back – That’s where I picked up my first National Win.  Trails were perfect, and I felt awesome that day.  I had some really fast guys on my row, so I felt like that pushed me to ride to my complete potential.

Favorite moment on the National Enduro Series: 
Finishing the Red Fox Enduro…  It was literally the hardest thing I’ve ever done on a motorcycle.  Accomplishing it was extremely gratifying.  


Goals for the Season: 
30+B Championship…… I’m coming for you Oswald haha!
