"I had a target on my back going into this year's King of Motos after nabbing the win last year. I have been physically preparing for this race as much as possible and it paid off huge for me! I would've like to spend more time on the bike pre running, but my time was limited. With trials basically embedded in my blood it worked out in my favor during the extreme race. The course had some very difficult parts this year and my bike handled perfectly all day and I had a blast. This was a great way to start off the 2014 season following my late success I had in the Endurocross series in 2013. I'm excited to get back at it and tackle what comes next."
