Welcome to the newest series on the blog, Meet the Members, where we’ll be interviewing full-time members. MTF’s training programs cultivate community and camaraderie between its athletes. Because supercross and motocross training is both physically and mentally challenging, we have found that the community created at MTF encourages riders to achieve their best results. Our property has everything riders need to train. Some members eat breakfast together every morning before walking to the gym for pre-riding warmups. Group workouts make for friendly competition as well. Follow us on Instagram to get insight into what training looks like day-to-day.

How did you get into racing: I got into racing through my father at a very young age. I grew up racing in Alaska and worked my way down into the states as I got older

Something you’re looking forward to: I’m looking forward to a good finish this year in B class and moving up to A class after Loretta’s

An improvement you made this year: I feel like I’ve improved on all aspects of the track, since I have been able to progress in my ability to pick up speed in the corners as well as my ability to pick up seconds in all parts of the track.
