ty1Five thousand, one hundred and fifty-three miles. The distance traveled in my van within the last four weeks.

Nature's Bakery Ambassador, Ty Tremaine here, clocking in from home after returning from the beginning of my adventure on the road chasing this year’s AMA Endurocross series. My journey began by heading westward on I-80, the road I’ve become far too familiar with. If it wasn’t for a good playlist of music, and a pile of fig bars, I don’t think I would’ve made it past Salt Lake City! As the hours of driving continued, the landscapes were changing vastly and my pile of fig bars started disappearing. I realized I had found my favorite travel snack bar.

ty4At my first event in Chattanooga, Tennessee, I set a few fig bars out on a table in my pit and word spread like a wild fire because in an hour I had the most popular spot in the pits! It was definitely a plus that we had the most popular spot, because unfortunately the race didn’t go too well. I had a mechanical issue that would force me to pull out of the event. I moved forward and set off to Atlanta, Georgia. The humidity was horrendous, but the racing was good. I would qualify 2nd and finish the main event in 7th to gain valuable points and make for a good race to build off of heading into the next event taking place in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

Before I knew it, another pile of fig bars were on the dash, a new playlist of music blaring, and we were on our way to South Dakota! The venue in South Dakota allowed the Endurocross track crew to design one of the coolest race tracks I have ever seen. After practice I was feeling good, loving the track and ready to bang bars with the best. Again, I would qualify 2nd going straight through to the main. I had a different strategy entering this main based off of what I had learned the weekend before. Attack, attack, attack. I needed to push harder than I ever had to get up front and fight for the top. I got a great start, finding myself in 2nd place right off the bat.

ty3The 2015 Endurocross champion, Cody Webb, was hot on my heals as well as current points leader Colton Haaker. They were knocking on the door but I wasn’t going to let them have it easy. I fought the best I could to stay ahead of them but after the grueling 15 lap main event I just fell short of the podium landing in 4th, still a career best but frustrating knowing how close I was to achieving a pro podium. I had countless spectators and fans come up to me after the race telling me how much fun it was to watch and that the battle between Cody Webb and I was the highlight of the night. This was a step in the right direction and gave me a boost of confidence heading into the rest of the season.

Currently I sit 4th in points and I am hungry for more! In 2 days ill set back out onto the road, where many more miles lay ahead of me to continue chasing the Endurocross series. For now, I’m going to have a Double Chocolate Brownie and get some rest. Until next time, cheers!

Ty Tremaine

My name is Ty Tremaine and I am a professional motorcycle racer. I am 20 years old and was born in South Lake Tahoe, California, but grew up not far away in the small town of Gardnerville, Nevada. At the age of 3 my dad bought me my first dirt bike, as he was an avid rider and racer himself. By the time I was 4 I was racing and since then it has been my whole life and is what I live for. I eat, sleep and breathe racing. I graduated from Douglas High School, and since then have been pursuing my dream of becoming the best off-road motorcycle racer. Racing has taken me all around the world, and I have seen places I would have never thought I’d be able to see. I have won 2 AMA Jr Endurocross Championships, and I became the first ever American to win an FIM SuperEnduro Championship. I ride for a top off-road team – FMF/RPM/KTM Racing Team Maxxis, and Carson Motorsports. When I am not training or racing I love to fish, hunt, Mountain bike, or go on hikes and adventure to new areas I have never been.
