As part of their first event on the DC Moto Team, Ian, Martin and Ryan came out to DC’s 2nd Annual Moto Team Ride day last month where they rode at the DC Moto TF at the Pala Raceway with some of the best motocross athletes in the world including Jeremy McGrath, Robbie Maddison, Travis Pastrana and Nate Adams.
