Kris Hopkins #7
Although Kris has had a lifelong passion for motorcycles he wasn't able to start riding regularly until 2001. He spent most of his time dirt riding, with the occasional Harescramble race thrown in until he purchased his first street bike, a Triumph Speed Triple in 2010. A friend from a local motorcycle shop encouraged him to attend a track day with TTD in June of 2012 at NHMS. Like most, he was instantly hooked and began attending as many days as possible. Ken and Tony invited Kris to be part of the TTD staff for the 2015 season. He also began racing the same year, finishing the season as an expert and winning the Vanson Rookie of the Year award. Outside of motorcycles, Kris is a firefighter in Middletown, RI where he is a certified fire service instructor and volunteers as an Assistant Coach for a local high school mountain bike race team. Kris is constantly studying and training to improve his abilities on anything with two wheels and truly enjoys to share the knowledge he has gained thus far.
