March 04, 2013
David Greenwell (above right, with AMA Off-Road Racing Manager Chuck Weir) is the 2012 national trials champion in the Vintage Factory Intermediate Class.
Greenwell, of Louisville, Ky., is an AMA Life member who began racing motocross as a teenager. He says his fiercest trials competition in 2012 came from Steve Berry, Brad Baumert and Steve Williams.
“The AMA Vintage series is an awesome venue for talented riders,” Greenwell says.
In 2013, he plans to compete in the Trials Inc. Vintage Cup series as well as at AMA Vintage Motorcycle Days at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course in Lexington, Ohio.
How long does Greenwell plan to compete in trials?
“As long as my body holds out,” he says.
When he’s not competing, Greenwell enjoys working on vintage dirtbikes, riding dual-sport bikes and mountain biking.
Who would he like to thank?
“Ryan Young Products does a fantastic job in the world of Observed Trials,” Greenwell says. “Thanks to the AMA for all of their hard work in Washington, D.C., in preserving our rights and lands to ride.”
