Interview with Tristan Low

Tristan Low had a bad start to the 2016 season. He crashed in practice before round 1 and was out with a collarbone injury. Luckily for him, the specialist said he would be healed in time to take on rounds 3&4 at Albany and that’s just what he did. We caught up with Tristan just after his accident to learn more about this aspiring rider.

Trenton Poplin Interview

If you could race in any other time, when might that be?
Probably just a few years ago to have started early.

What do you dislike most in others on the track?
When they are over confident, and then ride unsafely due to that.

What is your earliest riding memory?
When I was like 3 or 4 when my brother Trae and I used to go out behind my Gramma’s house riding on our 50.

Do you remember your first race?
I remember my first race at Horn in 2014 like it was yesterday. Super fun day!

What was the happiest day of your racing career?
The happiest ever was Washougal ’15 from knowing I won the Production C¬†championship.

What do you dislike most about yourself?
Not getting over my fears, such as doubles.

Tyler Nelson Horn Rapids Race Report – Quadcross Northwest

Rounds 1&2 of the 2016 Quadcross Northwest season are in the books! We had record entries for the opening weekend which is awesome news for the future of the sport in the Northwest and made for some awesome battles across the board all weekend. I’ve never really rode well at Horn Rapids and I came into the weekend really just hoping for a top 3 and to keep the bike in one piece. Saturday morning I got up early and headed for sign ups. After I paid my entry and membership fees I looked at the cash I had left on me and was like “Oh, I better go win some money back.” I duct taped my boots on and was ready to go.

Our 2nd annual potluck was a huge success in many ways this year. Our biggest success was that we raised almost $4000 for The Code Green Campaign, in conjunction with Quadcross Northwest. We received a plethora of donations for our silent auction and raffle, Quadcross Northwest sold green shirts, a representative from Code Green was in attendance, and caring members of the Northwest quad community (read: most all of them!) came bearing food and money to donate. It was an amazing experience to help close out the year of Northwest racing.

Tyler Nelson ATV Racing Report – QXNW Finale at Washougal

QXNW_Washougal354 Rounds 11&12 are in the books along with the 2015 Quadcross Northwest season. This was a great season for myself, after a year off I decided to make a change and made the switch to the YFZ450R. As it turned out this was a great decision since this was my first season I’ve been able to finish since I started racing quads in 2010, so I’m calling 2015 my rookie season!

The week leading up to this weekend was pretty rough, my quad had to be torn apart and the parts I needed were waiting for me at Washougal so I wasn’t going to be able to get it fixed until late Friday night. I loaded the bike up in pieces Friday morning and was just about ready to leave when I got a phone call about a family issue which held me up and I wasn’t able to leave until much later than I had planned. I ended up heading down to Washougal by myself and battled heavy traffic the whole way down. I got there after dark on Friday, tracked down the parts I needed to put the quad back together and didn’t get to bed until after midnight. Woke up Saturday morning signed up and went to the line for first practice with my alignment barely good enough to ride. It had been 3 years since I had been to Washougal and the last time I was there my quad blew up so I had almost no time under my belt on the track and it took me a while to get in the groove. Second practice went a lot better and I felt ready for moto one.

Colt Brinkerhoff Race Report: Australian Finke Desert Race

2015 Australian Tatts Finke Desert Race, Alice Springs, Australia

This race became a BIG undertaking for me, with making the¬†decision to go race and have an epic vacation with my now, fianc√©e Rachel, it¬†was going to take a lot of preparation to do this. I started by contacting the¬†owner of The Quad Squad Australia, Adam¬†Siemensma to see¬†if I could use his quad for Finke. He obliged and the work began. I started to¬†fund raise by giveaways from my awesome sponsors, gofundme page, selling¬†advertising space on my t-shirts, selling the t-shirts, and by helping my¬†parents sell their condo to make the rest of the cash. I sent my suspension,¬†wheels/tires, gear and a camping setup for Rachel and I to Australia. Thanks to¬†Fasst Company for helping me get it shipped away. I employed my now friend,¬†Cade Cowdin (owner of Official Strength in St. George), to help me get the¬†physical and mental strength to 100%. It was literally a transformation for me;¬†I have never been that mobile, fast, powerful and strong in my life. I knew in¬†my mind that no one was working harder in the gym than me and I know it would¬†translate when it got tough out there. Sam at Dirt Fiend Racing brought back¬†the popular ‚ÄúTank‚ÄĚ graphics kit to represent America. I was ready to get down¬†to the Outback mate!¬† I have to thank¬†everyone that helped me get to this race and fulfill a dream. You don‚Äôt know¬†how much it meant to me to try to win and represent for the USA!

Tyler Nelson Albany Race Report

Rounds 5 and 6 of Quadcross Northwest at Albany MX are in the books and they did not disappoint!IMG_4235 I had the trailer loaded up early in the week and we took off Friday afternoon to get some good seats to watch the Portland traffic! After a six plus hour drive on what should have been four, we pulled in and set up camp. I saw some new faces as well as some old faces that decided to dust off the boots and get back at it. Oh, and I met some guy named Joe Byrd. He is a big deal or something.
