Born and raised in Idaho, Matt started riding motorcycles at the age of 14. In his first motorcycle hill climb ever, Matt finished first in his class in front of 52 other riders. Whether it’s motocross, hill climb or cross country motocross, Matt puts his all into the sport.
“I’ve been riding dirt bikes for about 12 years. I love it and it is my passion. Five of those years I have been lucky enough to ride for the Project Filter motocross team. It is a great way to do the sport i love while helping educate people on the harms of tobacco or helping others quit tobacco. I’ve seen firsthand the effects that tobacco can have on a person and I’ve never wanted to have that in my life.”
