DREAM JOBS: HOW TO MAKE A LIVING WHAT YOU LOVE

STARTING POINT: “It is difficult to make it as a professional motocross racer in England. I got to the point where I was close to making it, but not quite there. I started training younger riders as a way of supporting my racing career. I started out renting a house in California and renting out my practice bikes. More and more people came, and it grew out of nothing.”

THE JOB: “This year we have been focusing on building up the business on the professional side, making sure the books are in order. Lately, I have spent more time in the office than at the track, which is not my favorite thing. I spend two days a week at the track with my customers, two days a week in the office and one day a week working on the bikes. It’s really satisfying to help people ride the tracks and rub shoulders with the guys that they have only seen on TV and in magazines.”
