I first started riding fat tire bikes in 1980, I had a 5 speed beach cruiser I rode in the hills of San Deigo. I used it for training for motocross, which I raced starting in Jr. High. My local track was Barona Oaks Motocross Park I raced there every other weekend, than the NMA Nationals on off weekends. After turning expert and missing a support ride from Kawasaki I finished High school and had to get a job and give up my dream of racing professionally. I started racing Mountain Bikes in 1986 and have done ever it sense. I have raced all over Ca. and most states in the south east.
