Jimmy Decotis, 250SX East – Riverside Harley/Dedicated Ride Co
Jimmy’s thick Boston accent isn’t the only thing that sets him apart from the other motocross racers he competes against. He’s become famous on YouTube for flogging his CR 125 two-stroke unlike anyone we’ve seen in years and his outgoing personality has gained him fans across the nation. He did race in the GP’s over in Europe briefly (although it didn’t go very well) but he’s back in the U.S. racing Supercross and having a good season on the East Coast. Last Saturday night he finished 7th and sits 7th in points heading to Daytona.
