We are excited and grateful to THR and General Tire for affording us this opportunity.”

As most know, he has played a vital role in our efforts down in Baja as a valued member of our bike team. His attitude is great; he is just a likable guy. We couldn’t do this without the support of our sponsors who have stood by us for the 2013 race season.”
