ISDE 2021 Finishes:
Nick is a young entrepreneur and semi-professional off-road motorcycle racer. He's spent thousands of hours on a dirt bike since the age of 4 years old. By the age of 15, Nick advanced to the Expert Class racing against Minnesota state and national expert riders. In 2016, age 17, he won the Minnesota State Enduro Championship.
He then shifted focus to national events, garnering multiple podium finishes and top amateur honors in the National Enduro Series. 2020 was the year to put all his energy into qualifying and representing the USA for the 2021 ISDE.
"Through the support of the AMA US ISDE Team and nationwide sponsors, I will be able to proudly ride for my country at the highest level in the sport I love."

ISDE 2021 Finishes:
Joel has dreamed of qualifying for the ISDE for many years, watching YouTube videos and hearing about all of the amazing stories.
For the last 5 years, he has pursued qualifying for ISDE, but in 2021, he made it a priority.
"Representing the USA is priceless!"
One of Joel's favorite tracks is in his home state by Stumpjumpers Motorcycle Club in Packwood, WA. The old "lumber mill" track has a bit of everything, from big marble river rock, tight single track and bark sections, to asphalt sections. "There's no explaining the feeling of going as fast as your bike will go down the asphalt to backing it into the corner."
Ricky Russell is a favorite mentor and hero, simply because of the way he holds himself. He's unselfish, always giving helpful tips to anyone that inquires. Ricky is humble.
The Eric Cleveland Memorial Team would finish 10th overall and would be Fred Hoess's 28th ISDE, along side Joel Tonsgard and Nick Swenson in their first ISDE's.
