Training with Jerry Masterpool at His956 Training Facility is Dustin Winter, from Clearwater, Kansas. A minor set back would keep Dustin off the bike for a week. Now ready to get back on the bike he's ready to continue on putting in work both on and off the track to get prepared for the stacked A class. We caught up with Dustin to get the scoop on what's been happening lately and what his plans are for the rest of the season.
MP: Being a top competitor in this sport takes a lot of work both on and off the bike. What's your training regimen like, how do you prepare for your races?
Dustin Winter: I train down at His 956 in Texas with Jerry Masterpool. Once lorretas got over we got right back at it training and working hard. A normal day for me is wake up in the morning eat some breakfast and get ready to ride. Then I head up to the shop at 8:45 and get ready to head down to the track. We meet down at the track with jerry and we get ready for our first session. Jerry has us do three Motos a day and we do 25 minute Motos. Once were done riding I rest up a little and get ready to head to the gym. After I get done at the gym I usually do my bike work. And then for the rest of the day I hang out with my buddies and get ready to do it the next day. Right now I'm taking a week of letting my ankle heal up because I sprained it but I'm am ready to get back on the bike.
MP: What's your plans for the remainder of the season, leading into next year?
Dustin Winter: My plans for the rest of the year is keep training and working hard so I can better myself. I plan on moving up to the A class so that is pretty exciting. I feel pretty good going into the A class as long as I keep working with Jerry Masterpool and training hard those are the keys to winning races.
