My name is Nicholas Reid, I am 30 years old and I am a United States Navy Sailor. I have always wanted to compete but that just was not in the cards for me. Instead I attempted to do the next best thing; become an mx mechanic. I completed my training at Motorcycle Mechanics Institute in Orlando, Florida specializing in Honda motorcycles, jet skis, and small engines in April 2009. It was a great experience and during my time there I was able to be an apprentice for a privateer team at a few supercross rounds as well as two outdoor nationals. Unfortunately, finances became tight and I was no longer able to go to the races for reality kept creeping in on me. So I worked a few joe jobs after I moved back to Maryland. In 2010 I decided I had a bigger calling and I decided to do something with my life and join the worlds greatest Navy! I have been doing this for nine years now, and have since then been blessed with salvation, a wife and two beautiful children. I currently reside in Ardmore, Oklahoma as a Navy recruiter.
I really want to get better at riding a dirt bike. I would love to compete in GNCC racing but if given the opportunity I’d like to try motocross as well.
