Well the name is Tyson Largent. I have been riding since I was 4 years old, learned to ride a dirt bike before I could ride a bicycle. I started racing when I was 8 years old on a 1986 CR 60. Then raced competively till I was 16 then got hurt real bad, broke both of my legs and destroyed my knees. 32 pins, 4 metal plates, 4 knee surgeries, and 13 months of physical therapy I was walking again. Then another 8 months of intense training and I was back playing sports. I know the definition of adeversity. My doctors told me after my surgeries that I would never play sports again, let alone get back on the bike. I know am back racing competively and run a small dirt bike repair shop out of my garage. Motocross and motorcycles of any kind are my life.
My goals currently for this year are to move up to the A class and hopefully get my AMA Motocross National license by this time next year. Its a high goal to set but I am determined to reach it.
Some of my most memorable racing moments included beating Ryan Villopoto on 80's, racing against Josh Hill and James Stewart. The race against Villopoto had to be my greatest racing accomplishment.
