The Scene

4,500 MILES. 11 DAYS. 4 DIRT BIKES. 4 DUDES. 1 SPRINTER.

These were the numbers for our trip across the US for the 2018 Motocross of Nations. The trip started in San Diego CA, where Max Mandell and little big brother West loaded up Max’s modified sprinter van for us to live in for a week and a half. They made it to Illinois in 36 hours at 2:00am on Wednesday. Ryan (Reno) Carreno and I spent a few extra days in California tying up loose ends at work. We’d go on to fly into O’Hare International and meet up with our brothers in their hometown Highwood, Illinois.
