I first got into the quad scene when i moved to the central coast of California (Pismo Beach) in 2005. I use to see everyone with their quads, dirt bikes and sand rails heading to the dunes, and I always thought it looked like a lot of fun. So finally I had the chance to go out to the dunes and try quad riding out. First quad I ever rode was a rented 250ex. It was awesome, after that I was hooked. Purchased my first quad in 2007, a 2007 Honda 400ex, then from there I moved up to a 2009 yfz450r, and this year I changed to a Can-Am ds450xmx. Started racing in the CMC series last year. I use to always watch some of the videos on Youtube and say I can do that, yeah it wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be! Just happy to be out there and having fun. Thanks to everyone out at the races for their advice, support and friendship.
