Wanjura trains for AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship

 

It is hard to believe that any 3-year-old would know what they want to do in life. However, for one young man, it comes with the passion with dirt bike racing. 
 
Jeremy Allen Wanjura, 16-year old of Cuero, is the son of Kevin and Laura Wanjura. He can remember when he was three, his dad racing 4-wheelers and how he wanted to ride motorcycles. 
 
Jeremy said, “[My dad] said when I could ride a [bicycle] without training wheels he would get me a dirt bike and I did that in a day or so.”
