Two laps was all it took in 2008 for me to understand where most of my time and money was going to be spent.  I have ridden most of my life, but only on the street, touring the U.S. until 2008. That was the first year I owned a “metric” bike and was hooked on my second lap around Loudon.  Being better trained is never a bad thing, and on the track, this has been the best training ground of all.  Got my race license in 2013 but didn’t race my first race until 2014, since then I have picked up the Amateur Formula 300 Championship(2016), as well as a bunch of podiums on both the Yamaha R6 and R3.
