What's the story behind John Dowd ?

Recommended Posts

I saw some sites vaguely saying he started rising in his 20's but is there anything mroe in-depth ?

Did he JUST first start riding bikes in his 20'ss? Or rode his life life and just started racing in his 20's?

Why did he wait so long to race ?

etc.

John Dowd didn't even turn pro until 29. His records include being the oldest rider to win an AMA National (Southwick 125cc, 1998), oldest rider to win a Supercross championship (125cc West, 1998), oldest rider to win a National moto (Mt. Morris, 2000), and oldest rider to finish on the podium in an AMA National (Southwick 250cc, 2005).

Well, you can go ahead and edit that to Southwick 450cc, 2009

Besides, wikipedia is BS, anybody can go in there and change anything to whatever they want it to say, so be carefully quoting facts from there.

MAX!!!

I guess I need to re-phrase what I said. John Dowd got his AMA pro license in 1986. But he didn't race his first pro race until 1999, at Anaheim.

And that's straight from his own web site.
