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".

In his career as an elementary school principal in Amsterdam, New York, Charles Loomis was always on the lookout for high interest level books for young readers. Discovering that they were in short supply, he decided to write his own middle grade action books.   Drawing on his twenty some years of amateur dirt bike racing in Enduros, Hare Scrambles and Ice Racing, and cruising the trails in his beloved Adirondack foothills he is crafting a series of action/adventure books for young readers.   He also has a keen interest in other motor sports and is working on action/adventure books based on Auto Racing.   Charles lives in New York in the Adirondack Mountains and takes great pleasure in sailing on the Sacandaga Lake. We are sure that an adventure book on sailing will be forthcoming. ###
