Name: Damon Lee Iwanaga
Work: Village Ski Loft
Born and raised in Gilroy, California, I started racing flat track motorcycles at the age of 4. With help from my father, a former professional flat track racer, I reached the expert level in the 50cc, 65cc, and 85cc classes by the age of 8.
Then I discovered my love for motocross. I traveled around the country for amateur nationals in the 65cc and 85cc intermediate class from ages 11-15. I competed at national races such as Ponca City, World Minis, Lake Whitney, and Mammoth Mountain.
By the Age of 16, I had reached the intermediate level in the 250cc and 450cc class but was plagued by multiple injuries. This ultimately lead to my motocross career coming to an end a few years later.
In 2011 I graduated High School. I spent the next year going to community college in Gilroy and shortly after moved to the Lake Tahoe area which is where I reside today in Incline Village, Nevada working at Village Ski Loft - Ski/Bike Shop.
