Walker Fowler, what have you been doing over the winter?
Walker Fowler: Just took some time off after the Ironman and kind of got my bearings after that crazy year and came down here to Florida and started training the day after Christmas and riding with Cole Richardson at the Richardson compound, I can’t thank them enough for sure! Just riding a lot and we have Landon Wolfe and Josh Merritt down here too to ride with. We have all four of us pushing each other in the gym too, and we’ve been at it hard with just about a month here left before the first race.
2015, #2 Walker Fowler will once again
be racing for AmPro / Yamaha GNCC race
team on the Yamaha YFZ 450R
How is your GNCC race program for this season compared to last season?
Walker Fowler: It’s really similar, with Yamaha, FOX Suspension, Lonestar Racing Components, Maxxis Tires, everything is pretty much the same thing as last year, and we are doing some pretty extensive engine testing. I felt like I was a little bit down on power last year, but our Yamaha’s were super reliable, and I think that really proved a lot in the end and kept us in the game. After seeing what Chad Wienen’s motocross engine could do in the woods, that really opened our eyes to explore a little bit and we are just doing a bunch of testing.
Fowler has many of the same sponsors
as last year including Yamaha, FOX,
Lonestar Racing, Maxxis, Moto-Xperts,
