  • Wyatt Wilkin
    Meet Wyatt Wilkin, a 23-year-old professional racer with a passion for racing! Wyatt's journey started at the age of three when he first rode a dirt bike. Although for most of his childhood he raced dirt bikes, things changed when his sister got a quad. "We all know how that goes, so I had to have one as well." Little did he know that this would be the start of his professional racing career. Wyatt's family has a deep history of racing. Growing up, they were always at the track and surrounded by quads and dirt bikes. Wyatt and his uncles even had the opportunity to travel together which solidified his love for racing. Now that he has worked his way to the top, he reflects on why camp is so beneficial. "When it comes to camp, I think of family. Saying that racing is like a family is one thing, but feeling it is something else entirely. Camp offers a chance to set aside the competitive aspect of racing and lets you simply enjoy ridings quads, the main reason why I started riding in the first place." Wyatt loves that he can share his passion for racing with others at camp. It provides him with a space free from pressure where he can spend time with like-minded individuals. "We are some of the luckiest people to be able to do what we do on top of the fact that these kids get to ride and learn from the best racers in the country, it's a win-win in my eyes." Wyatt also touches on how grateful he is for those who work hard to make sure camp runs smoothly. This will be his third year at camp and can't wait to help others learn and grow.

With their mentorship and the backing of a few sponsors, Jarrod began his ascent to the top. When it comes to camp, Jarrod enjoys connecting with others with similar interests and goals. "It's hearing everyone's story about racing and why they love it and hate it haha. Then trying to help them in any way I can as a Pro rider to progress their skill level is very rewarding. It's nice to be able to give back and share some of the knowledge I've gained over the past 20 years... oh and the wheelie competition is awesome too!" "The road to the top in the racing world is a bumpy one with a lot of hard lessons. As I came through the ranks, it took a long time to learn the skills, tricks, and various methods to become one of the best. Camp is your shortcut to getting there, it will make the road a lot smoother and shorter by surrounding yourself with a dozen pro riders. Come learn and have a blast doing it!"
