Metcalfe is Australian. How about Matt goerke, Paul carpenter, teddy maier, Austin politelli, vince friese, Jesse wentland. Lots more but that's all I can think of right now.

Doug Dubach came up and whipped some ass in the late 90's, I think. Won a Ford pickup for the championship.

Josh Demuth, loved his style, Talked 2 The Sheriff for a minute, maybe I was bugging him, but the Dude was cool and could ride!

Seen a lot, but the most notable to me are Mike Craig, Evan Laughridge because he raced everywhere and was great with the fans, Doug Dubach, Josh Demuth for his AX status and Leticia (lol), Josh Hill (guy has won at least one AMA SX), Tyler Villopoto (just a whip it animal on a bike), Shane Lusk (hope he is doing well), and Mike Alessi because he is....Mike Alessi.

Would mention Bobby K. but a dude that nice is mostly Canadian.

JS7 is the most entertaining rider since Hannah, my first hero,. even living in the frozen north.
Dirt biking from 11 to late 50’s, loves wood riding on the old 525.

Evan definitely raced up there for a season, teammates with Darcy Lange on the Richmond Kawasaki bikes. Willard won at least one championship against Klatt, maybe two?

berno, Derrick Fisher wasn't an American, he was from Brantford, Ontario, I believe. Moved to Georgia when his father transferred with the Blue Bird bus co. I rode with him at the same tracks, his father was teaching him at the time. Dad was no slouch either, but put all his efforts into Derrick's riding.

A guy I used to know pretty well back in the day raced up there for a couple years. Brad Hagseth won the 125 West championship in like 2000 - 2001 I think? A really good buddy of his posts on here every once in a while whom was pretty damn fast as well....Miles Warren.

And there goes Jeffro. One of God's own prototypes. A super high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

YEP! Rory did well up there! I forgot to say that he went and also Trevor Brooks raced up there for a while too. I still get to ride with Trevor every now and then , but he's really gotten into Golf. He helps train Cody Herzog as well. Good dude!
