20 year old Ty Starr from who made the move to Knoxville from Virginia will be representing Knox Enduro racing his Beta 300.  Ty is a very talented and fast racer that has experience in hare scrambles as well as extreme events such as the Tennessee Knock Out Enduro.

In his first event as a warm up, he won the Off Road bike class in an STRA Trials event.  I saw him do things with his Beta 300 that had the trials regulars cheering and clapping.

His first race was a Kentucky Hare Scramble series where he came second in Open A and fourth overall, not bad considering he had not raced in two years!

Next up was the Volunteer Riders Tag Team race, Ty raced solo and won the event easily, even had time for a gas stop and take a drink of water.

Ty then traveled back home to Virginia for the National Enduro placing seventh in Open A, which is excellent considering he started on row 118.  He was disappointed with his effort, which tells us he has lofty aspirations, and he realizes he needs to ride and train more to improve.

So he decided to head to North Carolina for their Hare Scramble series where he got the hole shot and led most of the way but started running out of gas physically and dropped back to second.  Another great finish, and he has vowed to hit the gym to improve his endurance.  Cross Fit anyone!!

Next he is headed to the Trials Training  Center to work on his extreme skills in preparation for Atlanta Enduro X, then the Tennessee Knock Out the next week.

Knox Enduro will be at these events, come by and say hello and cheer on Ty!
