Coming out of Wisconsin is the #43 of Carter Biese. Carter made his debut at the Baja Brawl where he meant business. Laying it all out on the track, he did exactly what he came to do, win. Carter walked away with a total of 3 championships and was rewarded with the "Spotlight Rider of the Week" award as well. We sat down with Carter to see how things have been going lately and to see what his plans are for the rest of the year.
MP: Talk about your debut at the Baja Brawl, how did that go?
Carter Biese: The Baja Brawl was awesome! I went into it wanting to win but not as an expectation. Friday’s practice didn’t go to good, I fell a lot and just wasn’t putting in good sessions. But by the time Saturday morning rolled around I was on top of my game. I went out and won my first moto of the day followed by a second and another win-- a great start to the weekend! Sunday started the second set of moto’s. I was just in the flow that day. My 9-13 I decided to try some different gearing because I had felt like I was in between gears the day before. I ended up loving it so we stuck with it. In that moto I got a solid start and passed a few people and rode to another moto win. In Mini Sr 2 I started way bad in like 10th and made my way into the lead half way through the 2nd lap, resulting in another moto win. My last moto of the day was Mini Sr 1 which I ended up winning again. The third set of moto’s on Sunday started off great with a great holeshot and moto win in 9-13. Giving me a 1-1-1 and the championship. In Mini Sr 2 I got another good holeshot and passed the leader early on the first lap and cruised to a moto win. I ended that class with a 2-1-1 giving me another championship. My last class of the day (Mini Sr 1) got a little delay due to lightning. The track was kind of greasy so I knew I just need to put in some strong and consistent laps with no falls. I got my first holeshot of the week and was leading until I layed it down in a corner, giving the lead over. Luckily, I was able to stay in second securing me my third title of the week! But what tops it all of is winning the “Spotlight Rider of the Week" award. I wasn't expecting to get it, but I kind of knew about it from different events. I was also thinking someone like Kobusch or Forkner was going to get the award if there was one. So when Pat handed me the award I was super surprised and honored to win it! As far as the afternoon activities at the Brawl, my favorite was the best whip, some of those dudes were upside down! Each and every activity was off the hook! Its “The FUNNEST Race All Year” thanks to Pat and his crew.
