Derek has Been riding motocross since he was two years old. His dad raced three wheelers during his childhood so naturally motorsports in in his blood. Derek was a racer in his early years but just like almost every FMX rider out there he was just drawn to jumping ramps. At the age of 21 he was lucky enough to hook up with some well know riders, Kenny Bartram and Chuck Carothers and they were able to help him to progress and show him the ropes to what has been an awesome FMX career so far. Derek is a family man with a wonderful wife and two amazing little girls. We here at Solution Action Sports are thrilled to have Derek on our roster of FMX athletes.
