The Entry Requirements are simple, yet exclusive.
• The rider must either be from Minnesota, lived here during their pro career, or are currently living here.
• The rider must have either qualified for a professional, national level,
main event, or in the case of motocross, scored national points. (Eventually, I'll get to everyone who has ever qualified for a motocross national, but I wanted to make sure I got all others first.)
As I started the research, I realized how uninformed I was when it came to sports
other than motocross. This initial version does not have details on very many riders and
probably will have many omissions and a few inaccuracies. Feel very free to send me
any information you can provide, even the whole biography with photos if you're
really ambitious. Full credit will be given to any submissions.
Many “new” riders were discovered during the Spring 2013 induction. Better archives allowed the
research team to find top 20 placements from all the tracks. Before the early records were limited
to Millville, and the staff’s memory.
The idea for this has been periodically debated in the conference rooms of the palatial
MXBob.Com headquarters, but the funding was always lacking. Spurned on by an offhand comment
by national columnist, and part-time actor, David Pingree, an anonymous donor agreed to pour
in the necessary capital to "let the world know about all the great motorcycle riders that have come from Minnesota."
