The Quick + Dirty with TASCO Tribe member Carlen Gardner

Not only does TASCO Tribe member Carlen Gardner absolutely rip on his Honda 450cc dirt bike, but he's also equally skilled on his mountain bike, which is his favorite way to cross-train.  

Carlen just wrapped up his Supercross race season as arguably the most improved rider on the circuit. So we sat down with him after the Vegas round to answer some burning questions:

How long have you been racing? 
2016 was my debut year as a racing pro, and I just wrapped up my 3rd season. 

What skill haven’t you mastered yet but are working on?
There's always so much to work on! Now that's its off-season I'll be riding my mountain bike more and would love to become better at downhill and overall bike control.

Who are your influencers?
The people that influence and inspire me are not from supercross or mountain biking. They are motivational speakers and entrepreneurs. They keep me aware of the hard work and dedication it takes to make it anywhere in this world.
