JERRY LATHROP
FLY RACING CREATIVE DIRECTOR

STARTING POINT: “I was the typical high school kid that loved to ride motocross, and Troy Lee Designs was right down the street. I always liked to design things, paint helmets, print shirts and be artistic. One day I applied for a job at TLD, and Troy called me on the phone at 10:00 p.m. offering the job! I started out there by putting Sticky Color kits onto visors at Troy’s Corona airport location. I worked my way up to painting helmets and then helmet design. A position opened up at Fly Racing and I’ve been there ever since.”

THE JOB: “I wear a few hats at Fly Racing. My project focus is helmet design and running the helmet design team. I also help the motocross, casual and bike design teams move forward on projects through design and technical direction. I navigate those ideas with the teams to refine the product line. To me, seeing designs become great selling products is very rewarding. Being able to create something from nothing is a lot of fun.”
