While at the gate shooting some pre-race shots at Hangtown’s MX National, I noticed a rider trying to get some shade on that sweltering hot day. I introduced myself to Tyler Bowers and asked him to share his perspective on this grand sport. His passion for motocross is as strong as any rider I’ve talked to. He was very humble and said that even though he was now racing professionally, he still wouldn’t feel like he had made it until they started making toy dirt bikes of him.
That season I talked to him at different races and watched Tyler advance and prove himself by regularly finishing in the top fifteen. Bowers is a four-time champion in the sport of Arenacross and is now back to racing Supercross and AMA Pro Motocross. Tyler is here to stay. He shares what we all feel about our favorite sport in The Art of Moto.
