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.

Gerhard Matamoros

Hometown: Tegucigalpa, Honduras

Class: SX and MX 250 Class

Bike: KTM 250

Favorite race: Loretta Lynns

Favorite track feature: I like rhythm sections on supercross tracks and tabletops on motocross tracks.

How did you get into racing: I got into racing thanks to my dad since he is a woods rider. We still go out into the woods back home to ride with him and his friends.

Something you’re looking forward to: I am looking forward to another SX season. My season got cut short this year due to an injury but I feel I still have a lot left to prove.

An improvement that you’ve made this year: This year I improved mentally, which is my biggest weakness. Also, my corner speed got better. I grew overall as a rider while training supercross earlier this year.
