Racing Families: The Hansons

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.

We learn about brothers Cody & Trace Hanson this week.

Cody Hanson #25

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

I am not alone in loving the sport.  It is not just my bikes in the shop.  The shop is full of bikes.  When race weekend comes, it’s not just me getting ready, we are all excited to go. I ride and race more because of that.

Question:  What is your most memorable moment in racing?

Hard to decide, but when I was eight years old and winning a six foot tall series trophy made of wood at the Fossil Bowl Motocross track in Clarkia, Idaho.

(Moose Racing:  Always nice standing by a trophy taller than you are.)

Question:  What series do you race?

I ride a mix of everything, Endurocross, Motocross, and Cross Country. This year I will ride some races in the Northwest Off-Road Championship Series, Stix and Stones Hard Enduro at Silver Mountain, MRP Endurocross, and Orofino Loggerx.

I especially look forward to our local Cross Country races, the Muddy Butt and Chuck Compton Memorial.

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

The Muddy Butt Tag Team Race is my favorite.  It is usually the muddiest race of the year, a really fun cross country.  My brother Trace and I are teaming up this year.

(Moose Racing:  Best of luck to both of you.)

Question:  Any tips for a rider just starting out?

Watch Go Pro videos of someone.  It helps to see line choice and momentum of a pro rider, or any type of riding you would like to do.

Question:  Who do you look up to the most?

My parents.  They are very hard working people. They were able to give their kids what they didn’t have as kids.  Through hard work they created a family electrical business, and with that we were able to have this hobby that bring us all together.

(Moose Racing:   Very nice that you see this & appreciate it.)

Question:  Who is your favorite pro rider?

Travis Pastrana

Question:  What is your favorite Moose Racing product?

The Sahara line of gear is my favorite Moose Racing product.  It fits me well and lasts forever.

(Moose Racing:  A must have in the summer races:   https://www.mooseracing.com/products/?categoryId=8468 )

Question:  Any other comments?

Thank you to Moose Racing for sponsoring me for all these years!

(Moose Racing:  You are more than welcome.  We have enjoyed every year of having you on the team!)

Trace Hanson #3

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

My brother Cody and I can partner on team races.  It is so fun to race as a brother team with Mom and Dad being our pit crew.

(Moose Racing:  Family fun!)

Question:  What is your most memorable moment in racing?

Winning my first Pro Class race with my brother as my teammate at the Trevor Haag Memorial Tag Team Race at Bald Mountain Ski Resort near Pierce, Idaho.

Question:  What series do you race?

I race the Inland Northwest Toyota Cup Series, which is a series in North Idaho and the Northwest Off-Road Championship Series in Washington State. I race a mixture of Cross Country, Motocross, and Endurocross races.

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

My favorite race is the Trevor Haag Memorial Tag Team Race at the Bald Mountain Ski Resort.  Cody and I have been partners at it for the last two years.

Question:  Any tips for a rider just starting out?

Just starting out, don’t put any pressure on yourself to be fast, just ride to have fun!

Question:  Who do you look up to the most?

I am so lucky to be part of a racing family.  My Dad Brent also races sometimes.  My Mom Terri is always there to help with the pit crew.  I am 12 years younger than my brother Cody.   I have learned so much from having an older brother that rides so fast!

Question:  Who is your favorite pro rider?

Cody Webb.  I have had a chance to meet and talk to him.  He is one of the most humble and nicest racers there is.

Question:  What is your favorite Moose Racing product?

The M1 gear is my favorite.  Fits perfect and so comfortable to ride in.

Question:  Any other comments?

I would like to say thank you to Moose Racing for sponsoring us.

I really appreciate it!

(Moose Racing:  Again ~ we are happy to have both you & your brother on our team.)
