Personal History

My name is Matt Bacon, I served in 3rd Ranger Battalion from 2003-2007 and I deployed three times with them to Iraq.  After Ranger Battalion I went to work for a company called Triple Canopy to provide diplomatic security at the embassy in Baghdad Iraq.  I still continue to serve in the Texas National Guard with the 1st of the 103 airborne unit.  When I was a kid I loved riding every day.  My first bike was a CR 125 at the age of 12.  I rode at all the tracks  I could but couldn't afford to actually race when I was younger.  During my stent in the military and other things I had a long break in riding.  I decided to pick it up again this year and continue to get better.  I am now a maintenance supervisor at Texas Quality Beverage.  I started off 2017 by buying a 2013 KX 250F.  I raced in a scramble cross and enduro race at the end of the year.  I just recently purchased a 2018 RMZ250 and looking forward to competing a lot in 2018.  

Riding Goals

My goals for 2018 are to make it to 1 to 2 events a month.  Riding a new RMZ250 I want to get in practice at least once a week as well.  I want to in top 5 finishes in the 250 novice and over 30 class by the end of the year.
