Sepesi is beginning his rookie year as a full time racer in the Pro class after winning the Pro Sport National Championship in 2016. “It is definitely a big learning curve,” said Sepesi. The move into Pro class is never easy, but Sepesi put in the work during the offseason and is more than prepared for the challenges that lie ahead. “We have been down in Florida at my own private training facility riding all winter. We have been focusing on trying to get faster and ride the longer motos in the Pro class.”

Sepesi took fifth in the heat race at Daytona, setting himself up well for the main event where he managed to battle his way to a very respectable ninth place finish. “In the main event I got a pretty good holeshot and rode my own race. I learned some things, and I am looking forward to the next race to use everything we learned to improve.”

Despite the rough track, Sepesi’s Yamaha was dialed in. “The Maxxis Tires are always the best. All the top guys run them because there is no doubt they are the best tire out there, and with the Elka suspension combination you can’t go wrong.” said Sepesi.

Sepesi has some great people in his program fully supporting him throughout his rookie Pro season. “Harold Goodman has been a big part of my program for a lot of years, he builds all my motors and race quads. My dad is with me 24/7 and lives with me in Florida, I know I always have someone here to support me and get me where I need to be,” explained Sepesi.

Sepesi is looking forward to the second around at Texas where he can put all he learned at Daytona to use. “It is back to more of a national style track at Texas, and I really like the track. I learned a lot of things so these next couple of weeks I am going to adjust my training.”

The hunt for the Pro Am championship will also begin for Sepesi starting at Underground MX. “I am looking for the championship in the pro-am class. We will definitely be ready and do our best,” stated Sepesi.

Watch for the #345 of Sepesi to return faster and stronger than ever at the second round of the 2017 AMA ATV Motocross National Championship at Underground MX Park in Kemp, TX April 1-2.
