with the 2008 season fast approaching, Jeremy
will be sporting a new factory ride; a new
Can-Am/Epic Racing DS450. Jeremy was looking
very smooth and confident on his new ride
when we caught up with him while he was practicing
down in Florida, which the Kentucky native
now calls home. We were able to sit down and
talk to Jeremy in between practice motos about
his off-season training, his new factory deal
with Can-Am and what his plans are for 2008.
Here’s what he had to say:

down here in Florida practicing with Tommy
Jeremy Lawson: I live down here now so I’ve
been coming down here for the past two years
I live about 10 minutes away from the track.

put in a lot more track time?
Yeah, it’s great. I come over here to
Tommy’s and do a little riding.
is it having other guys like Chad Wienen,
Cale Downen, and Chris Bowen out here to train

laps around the track isn't all it takes
anymore to be competitive at the Pro
level as many riders like Jeremy Lawson
are now hitting the gym on a near daily
basis to stay in shape
I go to the gym everyday and work out. I’m
trying to get a little bigger and stronger.
Last year I think that was one of my weak
points so I’m trying to get that out
of the way this year.
you practice every day?
Just about everyday. With the new bike I’m
just basically trying to get it dialed in.
has the transition been to the new DS450?
It’s been awesome. It fits me pretty
good. I got on it and started hitting everything
and running faster lap times than I was on
