Help Kids Ride In Memory of Patrick Hopkins

#317 was one of the most passionate dirt bikers any of us knew.  He loved nothing more than seeing someone else take up the sport, and was a mentor for more riders than any of us knew.  From offering tips and tricks, praising any minor or major success, encouraging riders to get back on when something went wrong,  offering parts from his own bike if needed, and providing a place to ride, Pat always helped his fellow riders.  One of the programs he loved most was Youth Off Road Riders.  By offering low cost clinics to kids interested in the sport, including the equipment, the Ellingson family and volunteer team has been able to get 100s of youths into the sport.  We can think of no cause greater to his heart than this one, and hope that we can all help this organization get even more kids out on the track in Pat's honor.  You can read more about their program using the link below.
