Q&A

Name
Jason McCune
Nickname
Hapa
Why do you ride?
I ride because of the places it can take me and the freedom that it brings. Nothing like riding motocross with your buddies or riding a wheelie down a beach in Baja!
Where do you ride?
I ride anywhere from the local moto tracks in socal all the way down to the peninsula of Baja!
When you're not riding, you are...
I'm spending time with the family and riding my mountain bike. Andrea, Gavin, Tori, and Darin are my world. They all make it possible for me TO ride. They have always supported my sports and in turn Moto itself has brought us all closer together!
What do you do for a living?
I'm blessed with what I get to do. Moto is a passion and I'm fortunate enough to be able to work in the industry as the Brand Manager for Leatt. What's that mean? I get to do a lot of cool things with a lot of cool people.
Who are your heroes?
My Dad for sure. Like many others....he's the one that got me into to riding dirt bikes! Dirt Bikes are a big part of why family is so important.
Motorcycle
My '71 CT 70. My 2008 Honda CRF 450 (I shoulda never sold that bike). My 2012 CRF 450X.....my Baja Warrior
Track
LACR......bring it back!!!!!!!!
Races
Mammoth and A Day in the Dirt for sure! Family and Friends all week and the best of the best (both now and then) lining up at the gate! Doesn't get much better!
Moto Memory
Winning Mammoth with my family and friends there to help celebrate! Finishing 2nd at Mammoth and having my Dad there to cheer me on! Rolling into Cabo after 1600 miles of riding the Baja Peninsula and seeing my wife and my daughter waiting for me!
