Hi my name is Eli Burks, and I am six years old have two sisters one is older, and one is younger. I live in Cullman Al and I go to school at West Point Elementary where I just started first grade. ilike riding dirt bikes and playing with tractors. My older sister plays softball and when I am at the ball field I take my toy tractors and build motorcross tracks in the dirt. I started riding dirt bikes in October of 2014, I really really enjoyed it. Iwent to the local arena cross and when I left I told my dad that is what I wanted to do. When I get home from school I do my homework then I go out and ride my dirtbike.
My riding goals are to one day be a supercross champion. My dad records all the supercross events and I watch them for hours at a time. I like watching them to try and learn different things and to ride faster. My dad has been talking to Matt Walker at motoxcompound to see about going to his place for some training.
This is my first year running the 50cc 4-6 in the alabama motorcross class and I got a 5th overall for the season.I finished the 2016 Alabama State Championship Series 2nd In 50cc 7-8 and 50cc open classes. I have one more year on the 50cc and am training on a 65 now also.
