Top professional ATV riders converge on Spring Creek MX Park

Posted:
 MILLVILLE, Minn. (KTTC) -- Being a professional motocross ATV rider takes a different type of individual, and one with a steady hand.

"I consider myself a pretty chill person, and when i get out on the track I just try to have fun," said professional ATV rider Sean Taylor.

It takes someone with dedication.

"You pretty much have to base your life around this four-wheeler right here.  It's day in and day out.  You know, we stay in motor homes 5-6 months out of the year, so it's definitely tough.  You just have to stay strong and if you don't love it, you just might as well not do it.  It's a tough one," said professional ATV rider Jeffrey Rastrelli.

Above all else, it takes some serious guts.

"The feeling of flying over jumps, and going really fast is something you can't replace with anything else," says Rastrelli.

For many of these adrenaline junkies it's been in their blood since an early age.

"My dad he always raced backed in the day.  I started out on dirt bikes and didn't like them that much.  He bought me a four-wheeler, and from then on out it was over," said Rastrelli.

Even after the toll it takes on their bodies they still compete.

"I broke my collar bone training back in 2011, that was pretty bad.  I had a collapsed lung and a broken collar bone and was out about 4 months," said Taylor.

With each fall they get up stronger, faster, and soar higher.  This is the life of a professional ATV rider.
