"I just loved riding," Davis said. "I would just go out there and ride in circles. Did I want to become a racer? No. When they had races, I kind of shied from it. But then when I finally started, around 12, I did OK. Then I did another race, and I was hooked. My dad, though, said it was too extreme to race desert and that I should race motocross, as he was trying to qualify for the Six Days team, so we didn't do much desert racing after that."
