Q&A:
            •          What are your goals for 2017?/Future?
I am aiming for top 5 finishes in all classes to the events that I can make it to in 2016. I am going to continue to ride and race as much as possible and continue to keep motocross and hillclimbing a family sport.

            •          What was your most memorable sporting moment?
While a long career in motocross and six years of hillclimbing has been great, the Baja 1000 journey was something I will never forget. Basically I entered a race across a country I have never been to on a quad which I have never rode and was scared for my life more than once. From getting thrown over the bars at 60 mph, to waking up on the side of a road from being knocked out, helicopters looking for our missing quad/rider  because I broke the gps ,to tires being slashed at the checkpoint and being chased by trophy trucks in the desert in the middle of the night. Unforgettable!

            •          What is your favorite NAHA venue and why?
I really enjoy Columbus because of the show they put on for the crowd and they make the riders seem like rockstars.
