Ted was born into a ranch family in McCall Idaho who enjoyed all forms of outdoor recreation from livestock to motorsports to hunting and fishing to mountain biking and even mountaineering which also included competition in several of those activities as well as multiple high school and college sports. Ted’s father started him on a lifelong love of motorcycles at the age of five with a Briggs and Stratton minibike and supported his throttle junkie lifestyle with MX and trail bikes through the 80’s. With the exception of a few years off during service in the US Army that beginning led to 48 years of riding, wrenching and racing which continues in the form of single-track riding and enduro/offroad competition throughout the Western US, Canada and Mexico. Ted has been a member and elected executive in several motorsports clubs in Idaho and Washington over the past 30 years and as a three-year member of the Cascade Family Motorcycle Club is happy to serve as the newly elected VP. Ted owns a General Commercial contracting company licensed in Washington and Idaho and lives in Centralia WA with his wife Angie. Angie and Ted have three adult children living in Ellensburg WA, Missoula MT and Victor MT.
Ted’s current stable is a 2021 FX350 a 2017 FX350 a 2021 WR450 a 2013 KX450 and a 2006 Triumph Daytona 675 (track only).
