About Me

I was born and raised in SC, and started riding when I was 6. I never got to race until I turned 18 due to overprotective parents. I spent most of my time riding recreationally with friends. I didn't enter my first enduro until Jan 1994 and I was hooked...

Blue Ridge 1 made the pick for round 5 of the 2012 VCHSS season. Weather was top notch, terrain was sweet and camaraderie was on point! The start was completely different than any other race to date. Picture a 50m wide start line, with your front tire in a 6" deep rut and dead engine. Approximately, 15' in front of the ditch was where you started a uphill pull for about 75m into a 90 degree left hand turn, all the while funneling you into a 20' wide gap. It may sound odd, but worked out really well considering last year there were 5-6 injuries just from the start. We were slated for 3, 14 mile laps. I managed a 5-6 place into the woods, and made a few more quick passes to settle into 4th. Another dude in my class managed to squeeze pass me about halfway through the first lap, so I just hooked onto him and was cruising nicely along when disaster struck.................his KTM. As I dodged his seat flying by and he slowed down to retrieve it and I twisted a little more with my right wrist to ensure adequate separation. I came through scoring on the 1st lap in 3rd and knew I couldn't be far behind the leaders. I decided to push harder and attempt a lead change, but couldn't make it happen on the 2nd lap. I finally caught them on the 3rd lap and knew the dude in 2nd was ultra smooth and usually mistake free. I tried to push him into a mistake and did just that, he caught a tree and fell. I checked to make sure he was ok before throttleing on. Feeling good, I was letting it all hang out and hoping to catch 1st before scoring when gravity decided I hadn't paid the bill lately. I was hauling 4th gear hammering it down a rocky fire road that had the little rain diverters in various places. I had been hip jumping one that was on a turn the previous laps, but at much lower speeds, with great success. I knew I was outside my envelope, but had the desire to win! Well, as luck would have it, the hip jump didn't pan
