Profile:

Fresh into the world of Freestyle Motocross but not to the sport racing, Mike Mason started out his career at the age of 11. With the support of his family Mike started out riding for fun, and then in the mid 80's eventually started competing. He made it his obligation to work his way coast to coast through the amateur ranks into the National and Regional Arenacross Series. Along the way he would compete in Jump Off's obtaining solid finishes which earned him extra cash to carry him to the next race. Competing in Jump Off's helped Mike get recognition in the world of Freestyle Motorcross. Even though Mike is a talented rider who has achieved many strong finishes in Arenacross, he decided to switch gears and focus solely in Freestyle. With only a couple of years into this new discipline, Mike has made a lasting impression on many with his great riding ability and amicable attitude.
