Background

2013 was the year I moved forward with my dream to race motorcycles. The year was spent on learning fundamentals of being on the track and being able to maneuver the track safely. April 10th 2013 was my first track day and a day I will never forget, the feel of being able to use a motorcycle for what it was designed to do was Thrilling! At this point it has taken my addiction to motorcycles to the next level.

Highlights

My first crash at Thunderhill raceway would have to be a big highlight for me in 2013. I take a crash as an opportunity to learn from my mistakes, it also lets me know I am pushing myself to go harder.

Watching my lap time’s drop from 2:32 to 2:14 has been a highlight for me as well, it’s exciting achieving goals.

Goals

2014 is all about moving forward! 2014 Goals include completing an AFM new racers course to receive my competitor’s license. Upon completion my tentative first race weekend will be 5/31-6/1. Practice makes perfect so I will attending track days starting in April. If offered I will be attending The New Rider & Track Racer Program hosted by PTT
