MXA Wrecking Crew
Meet a man who has lived three lifetimes of bikes, races and motocross memories
"There is no more awesome job than working at MXA"
"I tested every bike made from 1977 to 1987. It was the best time of my life."
"I raced bikes that I could never been able to afford on my own."
They had the best bikes, the newest gear, the best reputation for testing and I was happy to become a test rider. It was a great time
I loved being at MXA, but I felt that I needed to race the same bike every weekend
“It takes a long time to be a good test rider.”
"When I was at my lowest Jody said that I could always sleep on his couch."
"The Maicos were the best test bikes I rode. The worst bike I ever rode was a Carabela 125"
“MXA has opened a bunch of doors for me.”
"It's the people, and not the bikes, that stand out. It's a fellowship"
"I miss my time at MXA. I rode every kind of bike imaginable."
“Riding different bikes really helped me, because I learned to tell good from bad.”
You ride what they tell you to ride and do what they ask
"I jumped 14 feet instead of 15. I was lucky that day"
