Joe Byrd has been invovled in ATV Racing for over 25 years. With multiple amateur championships and 2 AMA/ATVA National Pro Titles, his triumphs did not come without injury. Joe has had several serious injuries including broken ankles and shattered heels, broken collar bones, back, wrists, and everything in between. Though this would have permanantly landed many competetors on the sidelines, Joe rose above these injuries and went on to win his first Pro Title in 2006 and also became the first ever AMA National Pro Champion in 2007.
Not only does Joe have a passion for racing, but he also has a love for teaching others safer riding techniques which he has done since 1993. Joe has taught as many as 300 riders in a single year and has traveled to Argentina, Australia, Estonia, France, and many states throughout the U.S. People have traveled from countries all over the world including Finland, Sweden, Portugal, Ecuador, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Latvia, England, Russia and many others to attend his schools which teach everything from diet and nutrition to bike set-up. The schools have been an integral part of Joe's career. He has met so many amazing people through schools that have followed him throughout his racing seasons for years. It gives him the opportunity to share his racing experiences with other hopeful riders and watch them excel and mature as racers. It's one of the most rewarding parts of his job.
After racing for most of his life, Joe is still as dedicated as ever and determined to get back on the top of the podium.
