My name is Brandon Elmore and I race A KTM 250 SX. I began riding at the age of 12 and within a year I was racing motocross. In that short period of time it was clear that I had found my passion.
In 2012 I entered the 450 beginner class and raced three rounds at Reynard’s Raceway in Wellston, Oklakoma. It was going great and I had every intention of racing all 7 rounds. Unfortunately in the practice session before round 4 I over jumped a double and landed in the face of the next jump and suffered I compressed vertebral fracture of the T-6 vertebra.
After years off from competition I reentered the 450 beginner class in 2015 and went 1-1 in my first race back since my accident. With that simple win and months of riding under my belt I finally feel like I am back on track and ready to tackle another series.
I am very proud that I was recently voted the President of Cowboy MX which is the motocross club at Oklahoma State University. The club focuses on bringing racers together from the campus and giving students the opportunity to continue pursuing their passion of riding far from home and giving them a chance to become apart of Oklahoma State's newest tradition.
By having the opportunity to serve as VP of Cowboy MX, I have been able to work with top rides and a legend in the sport of motocross. These riders include Trey Canard, Guy cooper, Brett Cue, Kyle Lewis, Aj Cantanzaro, and the MotoSport.com/GPI/Honda racing team; this has been an amazing experience.
One of my goals is to complete an entire 450 beginner race series. I want to see how I stack up against my competition in a full series, and want to be able to see how I progress throughout the rounds.
In 2012 I entered the 450 beginner class at Reynard’s Raceway and I completed 3 rounds and had the intention of completing the whole series. At round 4 in practice over shot a double and landed in the face of the next jump and suffered a compressed vertebral fracture of the T-6 vertebra. Since then I have had a difficult time hitting the bigger jumps, not due to pain but because of the mental aspect. Now a huge goal of mine is to conquer the mental side of jumping again and to begin riding at a higher level that I know I can.
I have competed in 5 450 beginner class events and I have finished in the top three every race and I have finished 1st place overall one out of the five times.
In the 85 class I competed in 7 rounds and finished 1st overall 5 times.
I am President of Cowboy MX which is Oklahoma State University's motocross club.
