Greg Bliss - Bio - RIDER / Dirt / Street
Born: August 6, 1970, Clearwater, Florida
Greg grew up on 2 wheels. Riding proficiently at 10 years of age and competing in motocross from 14 to 17. Greg’s love for the sport was cut short by the need to work full time, taking him off the dirt and into “real” life. His love for riding never diminished and he kept on 2 wheels as much as possible.
In 1996 Greg got the itch to be on 2 wheels again, in a competitive way. Greg started road racing; 600 supersport and middle weight superbike. Greg competed in CCS series in his first race and was gridded dead last out of 47 people, finishing 12th. Finding a new love, Greg continued to raced competitively for the next year plus.
In 2000 Greg’s love of dirt could not be overlooked. He found himself on the track and competing in races. Greg continued to ride, train & compete and in 2006, Greg made it out of his area qualifiers, to the regionals. This resparked his love for dirt & competing.
In 2007 Greg dedicated full time to training and racing and found himself in the Florida Motocross Series.

The new season started very well at Dace City mx I started the year with a second and a fourth, I then decided to move to California. The Vet X series is what I plan on attending, I will be racing some of the latter part of the series and some other small night races. I am looking forward to 2009 as the big plan is Loretta’s. I believe I have the speed and drive to make it to the big show.
The biggest achievement to date would have to be the +30 championship I wrapped up in 2007. This was the first series I took all the way with the out come being just what I wanted. All throughout the year I never fell out of the top two in points. I made every round and I only missed the podium on three occasions. This came down to the last round as the second place ride and myself were tied for points. Taking a 2-1 on the day gave me the championship
