GEICO Honda’s Wil Hahn is on the mend from a big crash at the St. Louis Supercross. Couch time is bad for racers but good for us, because we’ve trapped him into answering some questions—from you!
Using the #askwil hashtag on the @racerxonline Twitter account last week, we collected a bunch of questions for the 2013 250SX East Champion. We put together the 23 best questions for #23 and he fired back these answers.
Crash Adams @plugfouler44
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 #askwil what's it like training and staying in centerville with @kdub_14
It's pretty special, really a dream come true. His entire family took me in as one of their own! Although, Kevin couldn't hang with the training…
Kyle Smith @foxrider0564
@racerxonline do you have any advice for someone who wants to go pro? #wilhahn23
You have to be 100 percent dedicated. But at the same time you HAVE to keep it fun. I'm a firm believer in that.
Andrew Eagle @EagleOneAbove
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 which monster girl would you like to date? #askwil
Am I greedy to say all of them?
Travis walker @102Walker
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 is @kdub_14 's wife a good cook? #askwil
You have no idea!!! Southern comfort at its finest.
Crash Adams @plugfouler44
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 if u wouldn't have made it pro MX what do u see urself doin for a living #askwil
Without a doubt there wouldn’t be a dirtbike in my life. I would be back in Belpre, Kansas, farming.
Tallon Veater @Veater325
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 favorite free ride spot? #askwil
I haven't been to too many. But I know with all my boys that the river in GBK was a prime spot.
mim damo @94mim
Hey @WilHahn23 @racerxonline is Vegas special to you now at all after last year? #askwil
Yeah, it always will be for sure! But that town is trouble….
@WilHahn23 what are your tattoos? Maybe some close up pictures? C: #askwil
They're all for family and special things in my path of life that have meant a lot to me.
@racerxonline #askwil What was the brand and size of your first motocross bike?
A Honda ATC50 three wheeler! Does that explain my squirrelly style?
Coy Boy @therealmccoy268
@WilHahn23 why won't you wrestle me #askwil
Cause you can't fight your way out of a wet paper sack. I feel bad for you.
Roger Gould @Roger_Gould
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 Whats your favorite track off pakXemh's HighlyOverdue album? #askwil
The Mind State, for sure.
Bolt Speedman @CCotter304
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 #askwil what is your favorite memory you have of Loretta Lynn's as a racer?
One of my few moto wins there: 250 A battle with Josh Hill in 2006. It was a breakout for me.
Bethany Hughes @BethAKneeHughes
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 when is the kansas boy kansas bound? #followtheyellowbrickroad
I'll be there for our race in September. Hope you are, too!
Dustin Goodwin @667Rippa
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 Do you still have the xr250, how gnarly can you whip that thing? #askwil
You better believe I still got her! And it would blow your mind!
Core Mx @gmfs29
@racerxonline #askwil what's the difference in mind set from your first year as a pro to the weeks before A1?
Always the same, although I have more confidence as a racer now and I know my program has me ready.
Steve Matthes @pulpmx
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 Has you ever refused an internet radio show interview?
Just Pulp MX.
Tyler Miller @Tmill1010
How's the arm doing after surgery @WilHahn23 #askwil
It's getting there. I did some pretty good damage to my bicep. So it's tough, but for what it was, I'm doing great
Jimmy Warren @Jimbo_rooski
@racerxonline why are you dropping back to the 250 for outdoor season? Your choice or geico honda? #askwil
I'm not. I will be on my 450 when I return.
Paige Craig @_paigecraig
@racerxonline @WilHahn23 what is the real story with yours and @Captain891's realtionship? #askwil #weareallconcerned
We love each other. Any other explanation needed?
How hard is it to be a rookie in one of the most stacked 450 classes ever? #askwil @racerxonline
Humbling. And a blast so far. I wish I were still battling with everyone!
Ryde Gear @RydeGear
@willhahn23 excited to see your bro race again on the big stage? #askwil
Yeah. I hope he gets a good chance and can come back strong!
Gwyn Foss @gwynfoss
@WilHahn23 When will you be back on the bike? #askwil
Hopefully in the next 6-8 weeks.
Was your last crash your worst crash? If not what is? #askwil
Yeah it was definitely a bad crash. I had a really bad one in 2011 too, which I think was worse. But truthfully, I don't remember much of either!
