AOTW: Ryder DiFrancesco

Author: Olivia Reed

Hey Ryder, how’s 2018 been going for you?

I can’t complain about 2018. I’m healthy, having fun and have been winning lots.

You just got back from Mammoth, with a handful of bears, want to tell us more about that trip?

The trip to Mammoth was a rad one. I love Mammoth. We go a few days before racing starts so we can rise mountain bikes, fish, and hang out with friends. Racing went very well, I came home with eight big bears and three titles, oh and I got an award for the most hole shots.

What’s up next for you on the race schedule?

Up next for me is Loretta Lynn’s, I will train my hardest from now until the last week of July.

Favorite thing to do when you’re not racing?

My favorite thing to do when I’m not racing is to hang out with my friends.

Favorite person to ride with…

My favorite person to ride with is my mechanic Ikua.

Are there any pros that you look up to or that inspire you?

I look up to Tomac and Roczen, they are both hard workers.

If you could ride anywhere with anyone, who would it be with and where?

If I could ride with anyone and anywhere it would be with Tomac at his ranch. I got to do a Kawasaki photo shoot at the Tomac ranch a couple of months ago and I want to go back.

Any last thanks you or shout outs?
