Mike Porter is an excellent Motocross racer. He works after school for Bill Maslak in a Honda cycle shop that is owned jointly by Bill and Mike's mother.
Bill is his sponsor, mechanic and mentor since Mike's father's death in a tragic motorcycle racing accident. Ann Porter, Mike's mother, is not a supporter of Mike's racing having lost her husband to the sport. She wants Mike to go to college instead.
Mike is a little on the overconfident side. He has an accident in the last race of the previous season that puts him out of contention for a factory sponsorship. He hopes to prove himself and secure the sponsorship in the new season.
He also has a rival, Walter Ackley, who is a good rider but a particularly nasty individual. His goal is to injure Mike during races so he can secure the sponsorship for himself.
Follow Mike's heroic efforts to capture his dream in the book "Motocross Mike".
More adventures with Mike Porter will follow soon in "Motocross Mike Races Supercross".
