My name is Hunter Mulvain and I am eight years old. I live in the San Diego area (North Park). I am in the Third Grade and attend school at McKinley Elementary School. I have a younger brother named Dylan and he is 5. He rides dirtbikes like me but is still in training wheels.
I have been riding for about a year and started racing this fall. My dad bought my Honda CRF50 in June 2009 and then a KTM 50 Pro in November 2009. My dad made me use training wheels until the end of July. He wanted to make sure I understood throttle control, using the brakes and shifting before I could take them off. Now I am jumping hills and racing other kids on the track.
Recently, I started riding at Pala Raceway. This place is awesome! It is sweet getting out there and racing the other kids my age. I also like working on my bike with my dad. He teaches me different things and lets me help. I like reading motocross magazines and watching races and Nitro Circus on the television. Those guys are crazy!
When I am not riding, I like skateboarding and riding my BMX bike. I also enjoy playing video games, putting together the huge Lego sets, reading and picking on my little brother, Dylan. Dylan just learned to ride his back a couple of weeks ago so my dad is going to buy him a Yamaha PW50. I can't wait to show him eveything I have learned. It will be really cool riding at the track with him.
I do have a few goals for this year:
1. I want to compete in every series I can
2. I want to gain more experience on the track so I can become a better rider.
3. I want to keep up my good grades so my parents will let me continue riding.
I am very competitive. I like going fast. I like getting "big air." I am always looking ahead, picking my lines. When I am riding at the track, I like to try and race everyone I can. Sometimes, if I am ahead, I will pull off the track and wait for another rider just so I can race them. I live, eat and breathe motocross.
