Hey Talon, What’s going on?

Well, got a ton of stuff going on, but I just got back from racing 4 weeks on the road. We started at a Loretta Qualifier in Utah. Killed it there and in the middle of that went snowboarding in Brianhead and got to go ride new Husky 450 snow bikes with my new race team which you will hear more about at Denver SX. Right after that my Mom and I went to train at Masterpool in Texas then raced Oakhill and Freestone then got to go surfing in Waco, Texas. We just got home a week ago and took the whole week surfing everyday in Oceanside with my buddy Braden.

What have you been working on lately?

I’m working on trying to race both my Supermini and 125 but not going to lie to ya that 125 is way sexier!

Any new tricks, you really want to master this season?

A new trick I want to master this season is a long wheelie to a long nose wheelie!

Big travel plans coming up?

Travel plans are tons of racing coming up. First off to Denver for the Team Party and SX Futures, then possibly Cal Classic or the 2-Stroke Nationals then we are headed to Vegas, then Loretta Regional, then Mammoth which is always sick, then East Coast to train for Loretta's then book it home for our annual surf trip to Cabo.

Favorite place you’ve ever raced?

Favorite place I’ve ever raced was France for Team USA.

What’s your go-to wind down activity? Favorite thing to watch, read, do?

My favorite winding down activity is for sure riding Pitters with my buddies and gaming live with my 5 friends. I don’t watch much or read anymore than I have to for school.

One snack you can’t live without….

Favorite snack is Sushi.

If you were stuck on a desert island and could only have 3 things what would they be…

Three things I would want if deserted on a island would be food, my dirt bike and surfboard.

Any last shout out’s or thank you’s?

Honestly, I just want to thank Monster for the Paid to Podium program without your support it would be difficult to compete at the level I’m now at. I really want to thank God, my Mom, Dad and sister for supporting me in what I love.
