Scottsdale, AZ - The Road 2 Recovery's first annual National Ride Day is over, and we would like to thank all the riders, tracks, volunteers and manufactures who helped to make it a success. We collected over $40,000 in pledges. The top 5 riders nationwide with the most pledges received their choice of a motocross bike. Each manufacturer, Honda, Kawasaki, KTM, Suzuki, and Yamaha provided a bike. The rider with the top pledges got 1st choice, 2nd place got the 2nd choice and so on.
The Foundation is happy to announce the winners of the 5 bikes. First place was Jeff Mote from Motoland in Indiana and he chose the Kawasaki, 2nd place was Jason Barkdoll from Arizona Cycle Park in Arizona and he chose the Honda, 3rd place was Philip Loy from Motoland in Indiana who took the Yamaha, 4th place was Jason Augustine from Arizona Cycle Park in Arizona and he chose the KTM, and 5th place was Austin Mayo from Bostwick Creek, Florida who got the Suzuki. Austin was the youngest bike winner at only 10 years old.
The 2 riders with the most laps ridden were 10 year old Dalton Gray from Three Palms in Texas who rode a total of 76 laps and had over 35 pledges. The other rider was 15 year old Joseph Wood from Arizona Cycle Park who rode a total of 73 laps.
