Machine: Honda CRF250R (#58)
Born: December 23, 1989 in Wichita, KS
Since Wil Hahn stepped out of his distinguished amateur career and into his first season as a pro in 2008, people have been eyeing him as someone to watch for. The youngest of the Hahn bothers, Wil has always been really fast but only until recently has he developed a pace of his own. In 2008 he raced the Supercross Lites West Region series, earning five top-10 finishes. He experienced more difficulty with his Motocross season, however, and his best result was an eighth-place overall finish at Millville, Minnesota.
In 2009 Hahn raced in the AMA SX Lites East Region and had his strongest result of a second-place finish at the season finale in Jacksonville. During his MX season, Wil raced to ninth in the first moto at Redbud.
In his 2010 season he raced in the AMA SX Lites West Coast Region and has been extraordinary with consistent top-five finishes in every round including numerous podiums. In the season opener at Anaheim he came in fifth, and shortly afterward landed a podium spot with a second-place finish in Round 2 at Anaheim. In the final four races of the season he made it to the podium each race and in Seattle he finished second, putting him just behind Jake Weimer in the overall points.
Geico Powersports Honda’s Will Hahn had a bad spill during practice at Anaheim 1 and fractured the T-5 vertabra in his back.
In the outdoor series Hahn experienced some ups and downs, but overall he had a successful season in which he finished 10th overall. He suffered a shoulder injury right before Thunder Valley, which put the 20-year-old on the bench for four rounds. He returned in strong form, however, taking his best finish of the season at Southwick in fourth.
In 2011 Hahn will make the move to Geico Powersports Honda to contest the SX/MX Championships. The team will also include Justin Barcia, Eli Tomac and Blake Wharton.
