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.
