Dominic Craighill from Oracle, AZ
      Dominic Craighill, from Oracle AZ, made quite an impression on people at the recent EnduroCross event in Prescott. The 14 year-old hasn’t really been riding very
long, and while he probably modestly wouldn’t say he rode that well there, he never gave up and keep pushing all the way.
Dominic started riding on a YZ85 at the beginning of 2017, and after a month or so, started racing at the suggestion of his best friend. As his father, uncle & brother all ride, it was sort of a given that Dom would as well - however, he does feel that he’s the best rider out of the bunch (we assume no liability for injuries to him after they all read this LOL!) He must be pretty good, as he’s the 2017-2018 AMRA Champion in Supermini, riding a KX100. He also races with AZOP and WORCS.
School for Dom is home schooling and he’s a freshman.
While he doesn’t have a favorite subject, as it were, he somewhat grudgingly admitted to “kind of” liking math. As to plans for the future, he says it’s too early to tell other than wanting to become a Pro EnduroCross racer. Looks like he’s got a pretty good start on things! By the way, Dominic finished 4th in class and first AZ rider! v VOLUME 8 – ISSUE 3 , 2018 55
