Taylor began racing in 2011 and rides because of the constant joy it brings him along with the pursuit to become a better rider each time he goes out. He believes there is always something new to learn. Racing gives him the competitive thrill he seeks and the opportunity to test his abilities against some of the best riders in the world. He is grateful for both the new people he has met through snowmobiling and all of those who have paved and continue to pave the way for the sport of snowmobiling for current and future athletes. He is pursuing a Business Finance degree at Utah State University. Taylor can frequently be found hunting, riding in the sand dunes, or hanging out at the lake.
