Phillip Nicoletti

How and when did you start riding, how has it evolved ever since and what got you into racing?

I got my first motorcycle for Christmas in 1994, it was a PW-50.  My dad got me into racing in 1995.  Ever since then I've been going strong and loving it.

Was there any particular experience that made you consider pursuing going pro?

Working summer jobs through high school was enough of a decision to want to go pro.  Working a job that took me away from riding wasn't fun at all.  So the only option was to make riding a job.

Who were/are your idols on and off the track?

Doug Henry is my number one idol on and off track, still to this day.

Do you have any specific goals for your racing in the future?

To be Top 10 in AMA Supercross and AMA Motocross.

In what conditions and what terrain do you most enjoy riding?

Nice loamy, rutted dirt.

Any activities that aren't moto related?

I love any winter activity, especially snowmobiling.
