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: My dad and I went to Atlanta Supercross in 2014 or so and we loved it so a little while after I got a kx85 and started riding around the house some! In 2016, my dad got me a 2007 KTM 105 supermini. I had my first race at Muddy Creek in March 2016 and we’ve been addicted to racing ever since!

Something you’re looking forward to: I’m really looking forward to Supercross Futures. I tend to be pretty good at supercross, so I’m excited to see how I do in Salt Lake City for the championship.

An improvement you want to make this year: I would really like to find that next level in racing.
