Coming out of Clermont, FL is the #43 of Cullin Park, or as some people know him as "CP." Cullin has been staying on the grind between doing homework, going to swim meets for school and getting plenty of seat time in on his bike during the weekends. With his busy schedule we took the opportunity to catch up with CP to see how things have been going down in Florida and to see where he plans on racing the rest of this year.
anything needed to be done for my bikes like cleaning filters, washing my bikes or if I’m riding that weekend I will get my riding gear ready.
MP: Talk a little more about your training and how you prepare yourself for racing.
Cullin Park: The training I do is a little different compared to my competition. I attend public school so I don’t live at a training facility and I do not ride every day or really hardly ever even during the week. My main source of training is the swimming I do. It helps me with my cardio as well as strength. When I ride (which is mainly on weekends) I do motos and will work on my corners because that’s where the races are won.
MP: Your last race... where was it and how did it go?
Cullin Park: My last race I did was in New Hampshire, which followed right after Loretta’s. I went up north and stayed with my buddy and we did a race at Winchester. That race was a lot of fun, track was good, and overall I had a great day. I won 4 out of 6 moto’s. I won all my supermini and 85 motos but I also rode Youth B (250 class) on a supermini and I ended up fifth place in that. The Youth B class was definitely a tough one where I had to work really hard to catch up after bad starts. I was able to find some great lines that the big bikes weren’t using which made the race a lot of fun. Overall it was a great day of racing for me!
