David “Ping” Pingree spent ten years competing in the national AMA supercross and motocross tours, winning four supercross main events and landing on the motocross podium on multiple occasions during his career. After hanging up his boots in 2003 he became a journalist. In the 2008 season David slid into a team manager position with the squad he rode for - the Troy Lee Designs/Lucas Oil/ Honda team. Ping’s vast racing experience helped guide his young riders, and the team itself, to breakout seasons. It is that same experience that makes Motocross 101 one of the best new learning tools in the sport. Riders of all skill levels and ages will benefit from the tips and tricks David picked up during his long career. So, sit back and get ready to take your riding to the next level.
