10 minutes with Will Hahn

Supercross Rider Wil Hahn is an extremely talented motorcycle rider.

He’s now decided to retire at the young age of 26.

Supercross Rider Will HahnThe Kansas native and his older brother were prodigies on the Amateur circuit.  If it weren’t for way too many spills, Wil would most likely be at the top of the list in the pro ranks.

Unfortunately, Supercross is a tough sport and the body can only take so many beatings. Wil was smart enough to realize when enough was enough. We were able to catch up with Wil recently. He now has a new job and is still going to be busy at the races. Read what he had to say about his new job, injury, and the future.

Thank you Wil for lending us your time, lets start with a little background. Where does a rider like you come from and when did dirtbikes start to play a role in your life?
For me, riding dirtbikes started in a small town in Kansas. My Father rode but never really raced. He had a friend named Ken Voss that rode locally and suggested we tried it out. Well obviously my Older Brother Tommy started before me so whatever the big brother was doing, I wanted to join in and do it with him!

When did you start to realize that you could make a living riding a motorcycle?
I actually quit at one time and came to California and stayed with my brother. He was starting to prep for his rookie year in Supercross and he kind of talked me back into it. He suggested that I gave it my all and started training correctly.  He helped me surround myself with good people and that’s what I did and never looked back.

Wow, explain the relationship you have with your brother, and surely it has helped you as you made your way to the pro ranks.
Tommy and I’s relationship has always been good. He’s always treated me good, took me riding, and took me to get-togethers when we were young, even when he didn’t want to. As far as the riding goes, for me it was the golden ticket. I was always chasing Tom and trying to be on his level. He showed me the way and as he made mistakes, he made sure I didn’t do the same. I loved it and am truly thankful for it cause without him I never would have progressed the way I did.

Take us through the last few years of your career. Sum up some of the emotions as it was obviously quite a bit of a roller coaster.
Obviously I’ve been through injuries my entire career. The only year I made it through injury free was my rookie year in 2008, so coming off my title in 2013, I moved up to the 450 and was starting to really come alive and get great results. I ended up having a really bad crash in St. Louis and it ended my year. The following year, I was lucky enough to sign with Kawasaki Factory Team.

I had a blast and the guys there treated me great. The problem was, I wish I could have gotten them some better results in return for all their hard work, but I wasn’t able to do that so that’s life. It wasn’t lack of effort on either of our parts. I just want to thank them for the awesome support through injuries and tough times. I’ll be forever thankful for the opportunity.

Being known as one of the most positive guys in the sport is most likely a good thing, but did it ever put any pressure on you to hide your emotions, especially when struggling with the injuries?
No not at all. I’ve always been a believer that your attitude can really affect how you heal, feel, and all of the above that contributes to that. Not only that I’m a happy dude, yeah it sucks you broke some bones, but there is someone out there having a way worse day than you. Even when you feel sorry for yourself, don’t get me wrong there were some dark times in my life, it wasn’t always smiles…

How was the Australian Supercross experience, were you glad to race there before retirement?
I loved it, Troy Carroll and his team and family treated me great! The racing was awesome and I was able to go out on my terms and make some new friends doing so….

What was the deciding factor or factors in your decision to hang up the boots? How did it come about?
It wasn’t just one single thing. All the injuries stacked up. How can you expect to be on a level you want to be at while taking 3 months off every 6 months? The constant playing catch up really weighed on me. Also I have had a lot of concussions in my career. Concussions are something I needed to be realistic about and face. We all need to be aware of it. Bones can be fixed the brain cannot…

Do you have a sense of relief as everyone is training and stressing for A1 and you can kind of sit back and see it from the other side for once?
Yes and no…. there is a feeling you get in the off-season when you feel progress in your bike and body that’s unreal… it feels great. Now, I’m testing and helping the progress of the bikes here at Geico Honda but with no pressure on me. To possibly help another rider has now filled that void with happiness.

How did you find your way back to Geico Honda?
I left here on great terms (in 2014). These guys are my family…if they fired me tomorrow I’d still have the same love for them. I’m lucky that I’ve kept that and when the option came up, Jeff And Ziggy welcomed me back with open arms…

Do you see yourself being a part of the sport for a long time?
I’d like to think so. This is still my passion and what I know. Not having gone to college and what not, it is essentially what I have my degree in. With that being said, yeah I see myself being here for the long haul.

This question is most likely way to early to ask but have you kicked around the idea of doing a few races here and there or are you done for good?
I’m very open to doing some races but on my terms and only if the Team would be ok with it. Although, right now I’m happy knowing I don’t have to go racing. Right now I’m enjoying having a social life and a life outside of racing. When you’re a athlete, Friday nights are early nights at home eating right and going to bed. Its nice to go out and have a drink and let the hair down and relax a bit…even if I do still feel guilty at times.

Gotta let the hair down from time to time! Okay well thank you Wil for doing this. Good luck in all your future endeavors!
Thanks for your time!

-Wil

REIGNING MOTOCROSS CHAMPION, KEN ROCZEN, DOMINATES SEASON OPENER AT A1

REIGNING MOTOCROSS CHAMPION, KEN ROCZEN, DOMINATES SEASON OPENER AT A1

This past Saturday marked the end of the ten-week dry spout for motocross fans and riders, alike. Angel Stadium in Anaheim, California overflowed with 45,050 fans to sell out the show for the fifth consecutive time. Fresh off his first ever premiere class championship in the Lucas Oil AMA Pro Motocross series, Ken Roczen led every lap of the 450 main event, to claim his second consecutive win at A1. In the 250 class, it was Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/KTM’s, Jessy Nelson who also led every lap of the main event to claim his first ever career victory.

Out of the gate in the 450 class, it was Smartop/Motoconcepts Racing’s Mike Alessi, who broke out to an early lead, capturing the first hole shot of 2015. The number twenty-nine of Andrew Short was able to make quick work of Alessi, taking over the lead on his BTOSports.com, KTM. Before the veteran could even turn one full lap, Ken Roczen took over on his RCH/Soaring Eagle/Jimmy Johns, Suzuki.

As Ken Roczen began to put some time between himself and the rest of the pack, all eyes turned to the rookie on the number twenty-one bike. All the way from the inside gate, shirt hanging out and all, Jason Anderson was able to make his way into second position in typical Anderson fashion, on his brand new Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna.

Eli Tomac with the fastest qualifying time, was also off to a great start, but, more surprisingly had some troubles in lap 3, pushing him well into the back of the pack.

Fresh off his win at the Monster Energy Cup in Las Vegas, just ten weeks back, Davi Millsaps looked to have the confidence to dominate. However, after making his way by Dungey and Alessi, to put his Monster Energy Kawasaki into fourth, Millsaps had some trouble in the whoops. The bobble put him back to fourteenth, but another crash shortly after would put him even further behind.

Factory Honda rider, Trey Canard, did not get off to the best start, but, was able to make his way into third by the half way point, pushing Short back to fourth.

With only seven laps to go, it looked as though Jason Anderson was going to make his typical end of the race push, as he began knock the seconds off between himself and the leader.

As Reed and Weimer battled it out for tenth position, Dungey was able to make the pass stick on Short to take over fourth position. Roczen was able to hold onto to the lead with a four second gap over the rookie, Jason Anderson.

Factory Honda’s, Trey Canard took third, with Dungey on his Red Bull KTM taking fourth and Andrew Short would round out the top five on his BTOSports.com KTM.

In the 250 class, many new faces made their way to the line for their professional debut. But, it was returning rider Jessy Nelson, who broke out to an early lead, capturing the first 250 hole shot of 2015. Nelson was followed into turn one by a group of the heavy hitters, including; Zach Osborne, Josh Hansen, Matt Bisceglia and Justin Hill.

Monster Energy/Pro Circuit/Kawasaki rider, Tyler Bowers was not far behind the top five pack and looked to be on the move.

Bisceglia and Hill were able to make their way around MotoSport.com/Team 100 rider, Josh Hansen. However, as Hill went to make the move Bisceglia, Hill pushed him out to high on the turn and Bisceglia went down.

Darryn Durham also went down hard after the rhythm section, taking himself out of the main event. GEICO Honda rider, Malcolm Stewart also found himself down and out after a pile up with 2013 Canadian Champ, Austin Politelli.

Bowers was able to make the move on Hansen, but, Hansen returned the favour and held onto fourth. Bowers managed to get back by Hansen and continued his move towards the front of the pack. On the nine-eleven bike, Bowers was able to catch Red Bull KTM’s Justin Hill and complete the pass for third, with only five laps remaining.

After a poor start for the Star Racing/Yamalube/Yamaha riders, Alex Martin and Cooper Webb, they found themselves in a four way battle for seventh position between themselves, Josh Hansen and Shane Mcelrath. McElrath managed to push Hansen out wide, but, the two ended up banging bars and Hansen went down.

It was the number twenty-eight of Jessy Nelson who had the stadium on their feet, claiming his first ever victory in his professional career. Nelson made his way into the media a few times last year with a couple solid fifth place finishes, but, never better than fifth. To take such a dominating win at the season opener, proves he has been hard at work during the off season.

Rockstar Energy Racing Husqvarna’s Zach Osborne was not able to close the gap on Nelson, but, managed to hold off Bowers to claim second position.

2011 Arenacross champion, Tyler Bowers fought his way from sixth to third to claim the final podium spot at A1. Justin Hill and Aaron Plessinger rounded out the top five.

Next week the series will head to Phoenix, Arizona for Round two of the Monster Energy Supercorss Series, an FIM World Championship.

As we have said in the past, if Greg Godfrey tells you to do something it is probably going to be in your best interest to do the exact opposite of what he tells you to do.

Josh Shave, marketing manager for Mastercraft boats learned that lesson how most of us did, THE HARD WAY!!  Check out the video below from Shaves first time ever on a dirt bike and his first ever jump on a dirt bike.  Ironically both firsts were in the same run. Enjoy.
