My name is Lane Yates, and I have been riding offroad motorcycles for about nine years now.
I am part of my school's FBLA chapter, where I competed in the Business Communications event, and managed to obtain 7th place in region competition, thus qualifying for state-level competition, where I placed 52nd...
I'm in college now, and I find free time to be a scarcity, so the decision has been made to take a hiatus from motocross. It's been a difficult decision to reach- I've been riding for 10 years now. However, it doesn't make financial sense to keep my bike, when I only have an opportunity to ride a handful of times each year, so i plan to move to the street for a while.
I'd also like to take a moment to thank everyone who's helped me through the last couple of years. Obviously, I'll start with God. Without Him, none of this would have been possible. Next, I'd like to thank my parents for sticking with me and dealing with those early mornings, and also for instilling in me a good work ethic. I also want to give my thanks to the folks over at 100% Optics, O'neal, and Leatt for keeping me safe and looking good over the last two years. It's been really cool to have gotten on with 100% when they came back to the sport, and now to see mostly their goggles at the local areas. I also want to thank the good people at DeCal Works, Pro Taper, Cycra, and Twin Air for keeping my bike looking and running fresh. I'm even going to throw in a thank you to all of the folks at the companies who sent me contract offers that I declined. I would have loved to have been able to accept those contracts, but they often conflicted with other contracts. Even so, the offers helped give me the confidence needed to push myself to new levels. And for that, I thank you all.
It's been great to see how I've grown and improved over the last two years, and I'm proud to be associated with everyone who's helped me get to where I am today.
Thanks again for all of the support, everyone. You're all wonderful!
