In all fairness we can’t list Kevin as a guide or instructor without mentioning Michele, they really come as a duo. Though extensive, their list of accolades doesn’t do them justice. They’re just amazing people full of greatness.
Kevin is a veteran trials rider and baja racer. They’ll be racing the NORRA Mexican 1000 again this year at the end of May and Kevin will be pursuing another Expert overall #1 plate in the RMTA. Think about it, a guy who rides an XR650 with his girl across the sandy rollers of Baja at speed AND competes on an ultra-light braap bike in trials.
Probably has a few tips, if you ask.
