Raised on two wheels in the deserts of Nevada, the newest addition to the MotoUSA crew has been part of the industry for well over 15 years.Equal parts writer, photographer, and rider, "JDawg" is a jack of all trades and even a master of some.

Dakotoa Tedder and Chava Greenlee took the overall win at the 13th Annual Surfercross.

For the 13th year in a row, the motocross and surfing industries teamed up for a two day event that combines two of Southern California’ s best action sport exports at the always fun Surfercross. The brainchild of JGRMX’s Jeremy Albrecht and big wave surfer Mike “Snips” Parsons, the Sufercross teams up pro surfers with pro motocross racers randomly in two-man teams for bragging rights and some sweet Fender Guitar trophies. Day one consists of turning motos at Starwest Motocross Park, and day two is a full on surf contest at San Onofre State Beach. Both teammates have to compete in both disciplines, and the results can be surprising and sometimes comical.
This year Dakota Tedder and Kauai surfer Chava Greenlee took the overall win with a dominating motocross victory combined with a fifth place in the surf contest. Looks like Greenlee is a better Mxer than Tedder is a surfer. Second place went to Nathan Ramsey and Troy Eckert, and TLD’s Christian Craig and Scot Farnsworth took third. Surfing legend Sunny Garcia and off-roader Kendal Norman just missed out on a podium finish in fourth.
Look for an in-depth report coming soon from our test rider, Nick Thiel, who raced the Industry Class on our 2011 Yamaha YZ250 Project 2-Stroke.
