That's the question, isn't it rhargrave431? I feel like every racer would like to go back a time or two when looking in retrospect. All-in-all I feel like each year I was willing to do whatever it took to be a top contender. Would I like to go back and ... more »

Hey snackfedbear, I would go back in time to see Alice in Chains perform their "Jar of Flies" album with front man Lane Staley.

Hey Phillip_Lamb. I have been able to learn a great deal off the bike over the last two years, but would certainly entertain the idea of returning to SX. I'm always up for new ventures and am looking to fill my 2017 calendar. Keep an eye out for me.

Hey Grenader26. Justin Blocker is a fine Dentonite and has influenced me in many ways over the years...like the time at Chipotle, just ask him.

Good question dbrunski125, I think you're right. A good portion of the industry does seem to rag on Suzuki. Although personally I think that it is a great bike, it is easy to see they have fallen behind in the R&D department over the last 5-10 years. ... more »

Good idea FahQ, I'll talk with factory TM to see what we can do. I've heard good things about those events and would like to attend one next year. I'm in the process of filling my calendar for 2017 so we will see what happens.

Hey kmp1219, the guys at Factory TM Racing definitely have Supermoto figured out so that made my transition a little smoother. But yes, switching from nobbies to slicks can certainly take some time getting used to. Overall, I have found Supermoto to ... more »

Hi MX Guy, this is actually something we have seen in the past where pros retire from SX and land a spot in Supermoto. Compared to a full season of SX and MX, you're right, Supermoto is more mellow but I think you'd see that change as the number of participants ... more »

Hey Motoxdoc, a great question. I'd say most professionals in the sport will face all of these challenges at some point in their career. For me, it was an injury in 2014 that put me on the sidelines. From there I decided to focus on school and writing. ... more »

Hey davistld01, the UNT Moto Club is underway and we have some pretty big things planned. Keep on the lookout for us at the Dallas SX. I have been racing some internationally as of late, but nothing local. As the club evolves I will begin to become more ... more »

Hey mb60. I remember that DNF at Freestone, kept me off the podium if I'm not mistaken. You're right, Texas was a tough race but I always enjoyed performing in front of the home crowd. As far as your questions goes, yes, I'd certainly consider one of ... more »

Likewise Phil. Mettet was a great experience. Yes, I hope to return next year and maybe even bring some Americans with me. A lot of talented Supermoto guys over there. Would love to see the sport flourishing state side again.

Hey fanopj1, glad to have been apart of those great memories. I'm hoping to be back at Daytona this year for the return of AMA TT. We'll keep you posted as it develops.

Alpacas of course. They have the most expensive fleece in the world... much like myself.

Hey Falcon, I started playing the guitar at age 14 and began writing originals around age 19. I've always felt like extreme sports and rock n' roll were born out of the same spirit. I grew up listening to the greats of 90s grunge like Sound Garden and ... more »
