My name is Chris and for as long as I can remember I loved motorcycles and racing. I have been riding since I was 6 years old. My uncle got me interested in racing because he raced flat track. My first race was at Timonium Maryland on a small concrete indoor flat track. After that it was mainly trail riding until I was a teenager. I started racing motocross for a summer when I had a bad crash and rushed to the hospital with a concussion. Unfortunately racing got to be a little to expensive for my parents and so it was back to trail riding. Now that I'm working full time and supporting my racing, I get out as much as I can. My family supports me and is at almost every race I attend. I started in the C class and was in that for 2 years until I pointed out and the AMA said I must race B now. It's tough but fun. I raced the 250B class and 25+ B class last year. I finished 4th in points in the 25+ class which was a huge reward for me. Hoping for better results in both classes this year.
Since getting moved up to B class, I'm hoping for better finishes than last year. It would be great to get on the podium some time this year, but I know it will be hard and I will need to practice. I'm working out in the gym during the off season to get in shape to chase this goal of reaching the podium.
My highlights are a few top 5 finishes in C class and getting moved to B class last year. Also finishing 4th at Harrisburg's annual Motorama race in front of thousands of people.
