I started riding dirt bikes when I was 12 years old. I rode tight trails with my dad for 4 years but had always wanted to try motocross racing. In April 2008, I bought a KX 100, started racing and fell in love with the sport. April 2009, I bought my KX250F, got my dad into racing and enjoyed the 2009 racing season. I am very excited for this season of racing. Maybe this year I’ll beat my dad!!

I got I started racing when I was, 16 years old. Took a break when I got married in 1990, had two children. Decided to get back on to trail riding in 1999. Was able get my family on bikes in 2005. In 2008 my daughter decided she wanted to try motocross racing and eventually talked me in to hitting the motocross track style racing at the end of 08 season. I enjoyed the races and was confident in my results and my ability, so along with my daughter we gave it all for the 09 season. A injury (broken wrist) slowed me for a couple months of the season. I have been training regularly to get into shape for the 2010 year and look forward to a sucessfull year on the track with my daughter.
