Started with motocross at Indian Dunes.Went out to first desert race in 1971 and got the bug.The best group of people in the sport.Finished the 1972 Barstow to Vegas with a second hand Ossa in the top 150 of the 250 novice class. Amazing the bike held together. Those old bikes beat the crap out of themselves and us. I have ridden with two alumni listed riders from the the Desert Knights. Both outstanding men who mentored the crazy kid on the Ossa. Really enjoyed riding sweep and helping out the broken riders.Best sweep ever was Baja 1000.

I never was a top notch racer but had an incredible fun time with a minimum of broken body parts.A lifetime of great memories.
