1. How did you get started riding a dirt bike? My dad, Darrin Currier, loves racing himself and so he and my mom gave me encouragement and the possibility to enjoy motorcycles.

2. Eventually, you became one of the Pacific Northwest’s fast guys. Did you have a desire to go pro? I guess I love to ride in the Northwest! During my youth though, we live in different areas like Georgia, California, Texas, and moving in-n-out of different Mobile/home parks. Yes this was from a desire to be the greatest.

3. You found success at Loretta Lynn’s. Moderate, many top 3 moto finishes, but one overall win at the ranch some years ago. The last time i raced Loretta's had a top 3 Moto finish in the Pro class. I remember being really sick that week and mad at myself because I wasn't on top of the box overall, but I had no idea it'd be my last time racing.

4. But then an injury derailed your plans. What happened? Training for supercross had the gravest crash you can’t imagine, I took a high flight through the air without my bike, crash-landed feet first, ultimately, the impact prompted destruction exploding my ankles, feet, and Achilles' tendons. Beyond those fractures, from the strike of the fall, other areas of my body, knees, right hip and back are still recovering now 7 years later which I don’t talk much about. To this day still do my PT routine Mon-Fri and a big portion of exercise is to gain more sensation in my right leg/foot for better balance and strength around the injury.

5. Were you unable to get back up to speed because of physical limitations or did the mental aspect affect your riding? Physical at first. Mental in the end. After that injury I didn't feel capable of pursuing my dreams which was to be Supercross champion - top 10 at least and didn't think it was smart to compete for a lesser result than my talent. I couldn’t hop, skip, jump rope or jog for about 5 years. Any exercise I did put me out recovering for weeks because of the type of injury I have. So I chose to not race after 2011 because I felt about 30% “physically fit”. I could still ride pretty fast but because of bad muscle atrpophe in my legs I couldn't hang tight in bad situations and felt unconfident then.

More so, before the last big crash, I already had handful of critical injuries/surgeries growing up that were kind of “secretive”, but followed by fast comebacks. Was managing to match speeds with top 5 pros at times as an amateur. Though nobody knew this, not even me, but my mental health was declining at that time, some post-trauma stresses I guess, both mental and physical from other injuries/surgeries and unsettling concussions I had been through. I can say with a bit of understanding , until you know the feeling of being near death or mangled, it can get weary and confusing on the job vs. fun and rewarding after multiple tough injuries, which is not good.. So in my mind, I knew then, I wasn’t down for much more injury and misfortune.

My realistic self was preaching loud to me “gain better newfound talents/profession(s) that are more sustainable”! Cause we all must face the truth, if you're not willing to hang it out, go down, and sacrifice it all, then you'll rarely ever obtain Moto victories on the good days (unless you’re dungey) And If I couldn’t use my full ability because of feeling physically hindered and not wanting to hurt my self more, I was okay with moving on from Moto. I still genuinely cared about racing and winning then but lost enthusiasm trying to always keep up with speeds of competitors and standard routines like exercise and practice hours all-while feeling beat up.

6. What have you been doing since the injury? I’ve been loving life! But been doing a lot. Stoked right now for my clothing line to come out handmade items by my brother Kyle James out of Portland, Oregon along with must have Moto adventure accessories that’ll drop on the Lcat site in 2019.

Main drive recent is how to monetize my fashion, design, and marketing efforts which have become a big passion/additional career. Working alongside other entities and brands to establish wonderful and lucrative ideas through offering fine aesthetics to company presence, promo bold thoughts and messages, and communicating with the world in affective ways (I’m directing art, can build website design and manage, campaign plans, branding structure, etc.) . The past months I'm helping others establish consumer growth through forward-thinking branding tactics.

For a moment, helped run and promote ax racing in Clark County, Washington. Now on the side, I enjoy setting up branding models, websites, and series marketing campaigns for other regional track to allow their customer transparent information about where they're going to ride. Today I'm actually building a new website for Woodland MX in washington which I'm sure the whole Motosport crew visits that website time to time, which will be live with my design in January 2019

Me and my bro Ian Trettel are also forming a cool company together called Good Media and it is in line with the marketing and design love and how we can also help others be successful at communicating with their community. Our future goal is to build a Good Media team underneath us that can manage the company with our soul guidance. Because at the end of the day, both IT and myself are having such a blast with Marketing and design, that we want to pass on the electric energy to others in our team who believe in a mission where everybody wins! Ultimately both Trettel and I are entrepreneurs at heart, with many other goals to focus on, so we understand the importance of chopping up our working methods and allowing others to all succeed in mission like this and hope that they make money too. That said I’m pivoting paths and switching my up my every day hat to pull my bill down, fasten the strap and charge my own brands again, LCAT & LCATMX Camps will be my primary focus come 2019 and beyond.

I’ll be free riding and traveling under the name Lcat, making creative films in the new year. ————-expanding my motorcycle talents and hustle all my other jobs while I’m in the midst of working to better the future. Honestly I want to help change the world in such a big way and to me I’m finding out how I can do so, and when is the appropriate time as well. Bikes are fun, but mistakes are not, and I’ve made a few of those before, so I’m hoping to limit my risk and grow as a smarter individual, better person, business person and creative whether it be my riding talents or sharing art, I want that moment to mean something special that nobody involved in my life can see doubt in mom eyes and will

In recent months, I revamp LCATMX Camps 2019 plans and lately working on 2020 business model too and hopefully create a larger impact in the future while promoting our message. It seems like there are so many exciting things going on in the motorcycle world right now and I'm glad to be engaging in motocross again some more.

Meanwhile, throughout this 2018 year, I've done a handful of MX Camps and Pop-Ups for LCATMX which were rad and slapped high fives with hundreds of riders and got to chat with riders learning the game. At one point my OG Oregon native friend Matt Bisceglia, joined me for a 2-day LCATMX Camp. We had fun.

I also dig flipping antique furniture as much as possible too. My home here in Washington is set up now as an art gallery, which I'm constantly buying and refurbishing pieces for it, photographing them and then selling online.

I just applied for a few neat jobs in the music industry too. . I'm not sure where this will take me but I love music and would like to learn more about the entire culture working some shifts in the industry. Then i could explore my opportune idea of blending music with motocross during one wild week, maybe create some sort of huge punk moto event, like a festival that everybody could enjoy, without pressure

7. Now you are staging a comeback of sorts. Are you back into racing? Yeah. Me and my motorcycle is planning to take over the world. I begun training to challenge my biggest dreams.

8. How about the Nationals? Perhaps a round or three? I'm more of a supercross guy, but decent outdoors. So maybe we take it easy and crush the 25+ class at Loretta's just for fun. The regional qualifier would be my first race back.

9. Tell us about your Motocross camps. Is it just learning to ride, racing or trying to get the up-and-coming Landon’s to the next level?

I've been fortunate to run the most organized mobile Motocross training camps ever. Because of my belief in safety and our helpful crew we've created several facets and choices for riders to choose while joining LCATMX camps to keep our main events streamline and free from error, assuring riders stay on schedule and have quality training experiences in larger groups.

Riders can also select different types of training dates event that best suit their riding ability and budget. No matter what, whichever event they enter; they'll benefit tremendously and have an experience of a lifetime. LCATMX Events for all ages and riding levels.
