My name is Connor Olson, age 15, from Littleton, Colorado. First off, I would like to thank my current sponsors. Without their help it would be extremely difficult to attend as many races as I get to.
Sincere thanks go out to: Grand Prix Motorsports, Smith Optics, Pro Taper, LifeWave, Asterisk, PowerAde, VForce, Kip Sandell Motorsports, Amsoil, Ogio and DeCal Works.
I received the Presidential Academic award for maintaining a minimum 3.5 GPA the past three years.
I moved up from the 85cc classes last year to the 125cc Novice class. I qualified in both Area and Regional Loretta Lynn qualifierers and attended the Loretta Lynn Amateur Nationals. I have raced all of 2008 in both the 125cc B and Open B classes and won State Championship titles in both classes.
I look forward to next years goals and will continue to display the sportsmanship and dedicated passion I have possessed for the sport of Motocross.
I will continue to compete in local races and will attempt to win a couple more state titles. In addition, I will compete in the Loretta Lynn Area and Regional Qualifiers in the 125cc MX Lites Stock and Modified classes. I will also compete in the Schoolboy classes with the intention of qualifying for the Loretta Lynn Amateur Nationals.
I got the opportunity to race at the KTM Challenge on a 50cc in Dallas, Texas, finishing second. I participated in many Arenacross races around the country qualifying to race at the US Open in Las Vegas. Last year after four weeks on a "big bike" I qualified in Loretta Lynn Area and Regional qualifiers and attended the Amateur Nationals in Tennessee.
