We sat down with Gavin to see what he's been up to and what he plans on doing for the rest of the season.
MP: Talk about your debut at the Baja Brawl and how it went.
Gavin Wilkins: I've been racing the Baja Brawl for the past 3 years, it's one of my favorite races of the year. They easily have the best activities and events going on, after the races the people are great, there's pit bikes ripping around everywhere, it's all around a great time. The first year I was there the only person I knew was Sam Wise and now after traveling and racing all over the country I've met so many people that go there and it makes it so much better. I went into the weekend with a lot of confidence. I'm a sand rider at heart, I love to hang it out and I'm really comfortable on that track. I hit all the jumps the second lap and every lap on that track is so much fun.
