The first bike that started it all: the mud-and-dirt dirt bike.
“I was just hooked,” said Steve, a gravel bike mechanic who works in a factory in Georgia.
His daughter Katie, who is now 14, said her father had been working with her in the dirt bike industry for years, and she started riding a dirt bike at the age of five.
The family has been riding dirt bikes since 1999, and Steve’s wife, Mary, was one of the first women to ride in the sport.
In 2009, she won the first-ever World Championships of Dirt Bikes at the annual World Cup of Dirt in Mexico.
Today, Steve’s son Matt, 13, is a professional dirt bike rider.
He started off dirt biking at age 14 and started working with the team at age 15.
Matt says his father’s passion for dirt biking is the reason he can do what he does now.
“He’s like the dad I never had,” he said.
Mike, another gravel bike rider, says his dad was the first guy that came to him with a idea to make a mud bike.
“If you had a dirt bikes, you were just the big bike with the tires, the wheels and the suspension, and a lot of the fun stuff,” Mike said.
“My dad would just say, ‘Go ahead and do it.'”
Mike, now a race mechanic for an electric car company, said his father is the most dedicated guy in the world to making the dirt bikes he rides.
After the first mud bike, Mike was inspired to build a mud-powered motorcycle in his backyard.
A couple of years later, the family moved to a new location.
“When I got there, I had just got my first motorcycle, and my wife was like, ‘Why don’t you build a bike that’s really good?'”
Mike said of his father, who has been building dirt bikes for 20 years.
It’s still his passion.
Matt said he started with a mud road bike and then started to build mud bikes for dirt bikes and racing.
Matt and Katie both said that riding a mud machine is a lot more fun than riding a normal bike.
Matt started his first dirt bike in 2005, and Katie, now 15, said she started using dirt bikes at the same time.
Matt, who’s also a competitive dirt bike racer, says it was his first ride that helped him build his passion for the sport.
“I was pretty good at it, but I never really understood it,” Matt said.
“Then I started to see it’s more fun to be in the car than on the bike.”
Matt said his dirt bike is the best in the country.
He rides it every weekend and even has his own dirt bike, which he uses for his own rides.
“I’ve gotten pretty good with the steering, and I have good traction,” Matt joked.
Matt says the dirt machines that he rides are very light and can handle the road and the mud, and he has no complaints about it.
Matt has built a few mud bikes and said he’s not one to get too excited about it, saying, “I like the feel of it.
It’s a good feel.
I like how light it is.”
Mike, who runs a local bike shop called Mike’s Garage, said it’s important for a rider to be comfortable in the mud and the dirt.
“There are a lot, a lot,” Mike laughed.
“There are some that are so light and you can just float on them.
I’d rather have my bike on my shoulder.”
Matt also says the fun factor of riding a bike in the rain or snow is what makes him happy.
“It’s fun when you’re riding with someone,” he laughed.
Matt is the second person in his family to compete in the race series of dirt bikes.
Katie won the National Youth Championship of Dirt bikes at a dirtbike show in 2011.
Katie said her family has had a lot to celebrate in the last few years, from having the first female professional dirt biker, to winning the World Cup in 2012.
Katie, who competes in the National Team of Dirt Bike Champions, said the dirt and the team work together to help make the dirtbike community a stronger place.
“They are like family,” Katie said.
Katy said the family is thankful for all the support from friends and family, and the support of dirt bike fans.
“The people in the industry have been so supportive,” Katie added.
Matt’s family has made a point to visit local races and shows to celebrate the life of a professional Dirt Bike racer.
Matt joked he thinks he could ride for the rest of his life if he could make the right decisions.
“You never know what’s going to happen,” Matt laughed.
“One day, you might ride
