Riding for the Eric Cleveland Memorial Team helped me because the team covered my entire entry fee and they gave us some awesome products (wristbands and shirts) to sell! 

I know that helped my dad and I out a lot because the expenses to make it to ISDE are not cheap!

It's been a dream of Austin's for several years to compete in ISDE and he's proud to represent the United States on the Eric Cleveland Memorial Team for 2019.

He first began riding dirt bikes at the young age of 2!  And has been racing for the past 16 years.  His mentors are his trainer Miles Brazil and his dad.  "There is not a day that goes by without learning something from them."

Austin is committed to and competing in WORCS Racing this year, challenging himself for the Pro 2 Championship.  He is also sitting 2nd in Open A points for the Sprint Hero Series.  Some of his favorite tracks and series include Pala Fox Racing & Glen Helen Raceway.  The tracks at Primm, Havasu, Glen Helen, and Gray Harbor are current favorites.

Austin looks up to and calls them his heroes ... 

Kurt Caselli, Ryan Dungey, and Ricky Carmichael,  "They were/are all dominant in their racing with the grace of true champions."

Nic began racing at 4 years young and now at 25 his goal is to achieve ISDE Gold & become a Baja Champion.  

Inspired by Kurt Caselli - who lead the USA to the highest off-road racing.  "ISDE should be every riders's goal to qualify & represent our country!"  Nic's hero & mentor is Colton Udall - "He believes in me & I hope to be a champion like he has been."

Glen Helen 24 Hour Endurance Race is one of Nic's favorite races because, "There is nothing that compares to racing for 24 straight hours."  The Baja 1000 is another one of the most mentally demanding races in the world and doing it at the highest level."

Kevin began riding since the age of 3 and racing for the past 15 years.  His favorite race by far is the Tecate Enduro in Mexico where the trails are some "of the best ever ridden."  

Kevin currently races in District 37 Sprint Enduro Series.  

Kurt Caselli, a huge hero for Kevin, was not "only a great rider, but a great person always making time for me and others."

Racing with ISDE, the world's most prestigious enduro, has been a lifelong dream to complete in. 

His racing career goal has been achieved in qualifying and getting ready to race ISDE in Portugal.
