Round 11 in the books! P2 on the day. 📸 @octopi.media
I didn’t win the overall this weekend but man did I have a good time! The track was unreal. I’m just going to keep going for it and having fun. Thanks to @pcraceteam for keeping me nice and comfy out there. 📸 @octopi.media
I’m super excited and grateful to announce that I’ll be moving up and joining @racekawasaki next season. There’s a lot of people I have to thank for getting me to this point and for believing in me—quite frankly I could go on for hours about it. More on that later, though. Right now my focus is on finishing out this championship strong and to the best of my ability. I appreciate your guys’ support, as always, and I’ll see you at Unadilla!
Great weekend 👊🏼
Had the opportunity to play Isleworth today - one of the best courses in central Florida. Haven’t had a chance to play too much lately so needless to say I had a blast. Thank you to @zamyzhang for hosting us!

Quite the afternoon. My riding was subpar in the first moto no doubt, and man was I a squirrel that first lap! I got pushed off the track after the 4th turn and continued to gas it, as I did not want to get ran over by all the dudes sending it behind me when I jumped back on. According to the AMA/Jeff Canfield, that, along with my super sketchy moment after the finish line + quote “the incident with Nichols” (?) got me docked a couple positions. I am cool with being penalized and being held accountable when it’s warranted, the only thing I struggle to understand is the lack of consistency in the rule. As I’m sure you guys have seen plenty of guys in the last couple weeks pin it when off the track with no action being taken. You guys know I am not one for excuses, all I am saying is everybody should be held to the same standard! With that being said, I’m stoked to turn it around with a solid 2nd moto and 2nd O/A on the day. Being able to perform in front of that crowd, with all the energy and enthusiasm, is truly special. It’s something I certainly don’t take for granted. Thank you guys for the great day!
It’s no secret I’ve struggled at Southwick, so I’m especially proud of our result yesterday! I’ve spent many, many hours this past year figuring out how to be better and it’s awesome to see that pay off. Finally got a couple of good starts, too! My squad crushed it as always, and thank you guys for all the support.
P3 on the day. Didn’t have my best stuff this weekend so it was good result considering. The local fans were awesome, thanks for hanging in the heat with us!
I’m speechless. So grateful for the team and group of people around me that allow me the opportunity to succeed. I’m merely a passenger. The crowd was absolutely unreal today, so thank you guys!
Whip it Wednesday? Looks like I have the body part figured out, a shame my bike is doing the mannequin challenge. Hope this serves as inspiration for you kids out there - you can be a squid and still make it! 🤣
3 in a row! Heck yeah man, so pumped. A great start to the summer. I appreciate all the support from you guys. Let’s keep the momentum rolling. 📸 @octopi.media
Gloomy day at Glen Helen. Prime conditions! 📸 @tom.journet
The most important shot is the next one 🤙🏼
A few years ago I had almost come to terms with the fact that I would never get back to the level of competing for a championship. I fought and clawed my way back slowly but surely to give myself that opportunity again last night. Obviously, it ended in devastating fashion for me. I’m disappointed in myself. I’m disappointed I didn’t deliver for the people that have supported me and invested in me. I’m not going to feel sorry for myself, though - because I don’t believe in luck. I don’t believe in “why me”. I believe in taking accountability. I made a mistake at a crucial time and it cost me. That’s it. I will continue to give it my absolute best and I will overcome this, just like that kid who thought he was done back in 2016 did. I appreciate all the support, and I’m looking forward to a great summer.
So stoked on my new truck! Huge thanks to @pauldsmith and the guys over at @toyota_of_redlands for hooking me up with a fresh Tundra. Looking forward to driving this bad boy to Vegas this afternoon.

Denver! You guys were awesome. Thanks for the good time.
I live for moments like this. Stuff isn’t always going to go your way. You’re gonna screw up sometimes. You can sit and dwell on it or you can pick yourself up and get to work. You know my choice. Let’s do it 👌🏼
P2 in a close one at Seattle. Not a bad night for us. I felt I rode well, just wasn’t aggressive enough when I got close and that made the difference. On another note, I have to say, that was one of the best crowds I’ve ever raced in front of. You guys were awesome! Time for some redemption next weekend.
Back at it in Seattle tomorrow. Let’s get it.
I ran hand guards last week because my knuckles were bruised and bloody from Atlanta, and I wasn’t trying to catch a rock to the fingers. This week I’m running hand guards because they’re cool. Should I run them this summer or nah?
Here’s a pretty cool shot from the last time I raced Daytona in ‘17. There’s nothing like a hometown race. Obviously I’ve been on the west coast the last two seasons but I look forward to being back racing @disupdates soon. Hope everybody has a great time tomorrow!
Had a lot of fun battling some great competition last night. Some good hard, clean racing. Super happy to keep the ball rolling. Thanks for the good times Atlanta!
Click the link in my bio to get my new @ethika signature underwear! I’ve been a part of Ethika since I was a little kid, so it goes without saying that I’m super stoked on this. #LiveHappy
Back to outdoor training for a couple weeks. Feels good to hold ‘er wide and pull some tear offs. 📸 @tom.journet

What a night! Tough conditions to say the least, but we executed well as a team and got the job done. A @pcraceteam 1-2, couldn’t be happier! We had a good first half of the season but I need to continue to improve. A few weekends off and it’s on to Atlanta. Thanks for the support.
Let’s go! Got it done last night. Didn’t feel the best all day but we turned it around and made it a solid night. Proud of the squad.
Challenging night. In the 2nd main, I clipped a tough block on the landing of that table over two before the finish and hit the ground pretty hard. Rebounded with a so so last race all things considered. Disaster averted. Thanks team!
P1 at Glendale! My team crushed it and I’m glad I was able to repay their hard work with a win. Back to work this week and we’ll come out swinging next weekend. Thank you for all the support! 📸 @shepherdphotos
P5 - rough main event to say the least. Totally on me. Head up and time to bounce back next weekend! Let’s go! 📸 @olivierdevaulx
See you next Saturday 😎
