Racing Families: The Reed Family

We are very proud of all our sponsored Moose Racing riders.  But the families that ride & race together are something very special as many of you know.  This is a shared sport for families to create memories.  Over the next several weeks we will be featuring a sponsored Moose Racing family.

Featured riders this week are Stephen & Cameron Reed.  Stephen prefers a Suzuki while Cameron prefers a Yamaha.

QUESTIONS FOR CAMERON:

Question:  What do you like the most about racing together as a family?

I loved being able to travel and go to so many race events growing up.  Dad raced the SERA, SETRA, LACC & NEPG series for years so every weekend we were camping, finding creeks to play in, making new friends and racing our dirt bikes. I don’t think a kid could have more fun doing anything else, every Friday after school I was ready to load up and go to the next one.

(Moose Racing:  Following in their Dad’s footsteps is a good path to be following.)

Question:  What is your most memorable moment in racing?

The first time I ever beat my dad in a test section at an Enduro, it made a long ride home with him very memorable! And then crossing the finish line and winning the 2018 SECCA 9 Hour Hare Scramble was definitely a big racing highlight for me.

Question:  What series do you race? 

I race the Southern Enduro Riders Association (SERA), Louisiana Cross Country Hare Scramble (LACC) & participate in as many NEPG & SECCA events as I can.

Question:  What is your favorite series / race / track?

I really like the format and terrain of the SECCA Hare Scrambles in Alabama. They are a good drive from where we live but when I finish school I plan to make all of their events.

Question:  Any tips for a rider just starting out?

Never give up and just have fun.

Question:  Who do you look up to the most?

My dad, he’s taught me everything I know about racing. I go to him for advice before every race event, he always knows what needs to be done either to my bike or just what to expect. He helps me before and during the events and has taught me a lot, from bike maintenance to racing and also how it’s important to give back to the sport by helping host events every year.  I’ve been really lucky to have him as a dad.

(Moose Racing:  Way to go Dad!)

Question:  Who is your favorite pro rider?

Russell Bobbitt. I like how down to earth and easy he is to talk to at the races.

Question:  What is your favorite Moose Racing product?

Definitely the Moose Sahara riding apparel. It is really hot down here in Louisiana and the Sahara gear is the best vented out there.

(Moose Racing:  We agree.  Great line of our gear.)

Question:  Any other comments?

The support that Moose Racing has given me over the years has helped our family tremendously. I’m a full time student and collegiate track & field athlete at LSU so my schedule is insanely busy, but I know that will only be for a few years and I look forward to representing Moose Racing in the future at even more race events. Hopefully I can bring home as many Championships as my dad has… or more!

(Moose Racing:  We love sponsoring riders to help them achieve their racing goals & to have fun doing what they love to do.)

QUESTIONS FOR STEPHEN:

Question:  What do you like the most about racing together as a family?

Traveling, bonding and watching both of my sons grow in the sport that I love. An Enduro style event provides the ability for my wife, my sons & myself to all line up and race together on the same row. Not many sports provide that and it’s an awesome feeling. Countless hours of being together and the memories we have made as a family every weekend has been very important to my wife and I.

(Moose Racing:  And I bet there are quite the stories on the drive back home.)

Question:  What is your most memorable moment in racing?

There are so many. I’ve won many Regional Championships in several series over the years, even won the 2003 Cherokee National Enduro in Georgia. But I think the most memorable moment for me at a race would have to be the day Cameron wanted to go first on my row at an Enduro. It was time and watching him become one of the top competitors in the south has really makes me proud.

Question:  What series do you race? 

I race the Southern Enduro Riders Association Championship series (SERA) and some NEPG Events.

Question:  What is your favorite series / race / track?

I’ve always enjoyed the SERA Enduro’s and Hare Scrambles, The Gobbler Getter Enduro at Perry Mountain, Alabama is my favorite place to ride.

Question:  Any tips for a rider just starting out?

Race because you love to ride, always show good sportsmanship and never give up.

(Moose Racing:  yes, yes & yes.)

Question:  Who do you look up to the most?

My parents, they have always given me the best support, advice and encouragement.

Question:  Who is your favorite pro rider?

I would have to say Russell Bobbitt. I had fun competing with him in the SETRA series many years ago when he was still in high school. I’ve enjoyed watching him grow over the years and become the type of competitor that youth riders can look up to.  I know he has made his parents very proud as well.

Question:  What is your favorite Moose Racing product?

The Moose Sahara race apparel, I’ve worn it my entire race career.

(Moose Racing:  Great choice.)

Question:  Any other comments?

Our family has had an incredible 25 years of racing together. My oldest son Brennen is doing great in college, working internships and was recently engaged. I look forward to seeing him back on the bike soon and to see how both of them will do at future race events. I thank Moose Racing for being a part of that and supporting all of us throughout the years.

(Moose Racing:  Glad we can be along your journey with you.)

Moose Racing hopes this family has many more miles of trail ahead of them to ride together.  We thank them for their continued Moose Racing support.
