JUNE 5–CATCHING UP WITH MIKE KIEDROWSKI
Mike Kiedrowski has had a long and successful career not only in the GNCC and WORCS series, but also back in the early 1990?s, Mike was cleaning up on the motocross circuit. With a resume reading like a National champion list, the “MX Kied” took the 1989 and ?91 125 National championship, ?93 250 National championship, and ?92 500 National championship. Today, Mike is a member of the Team Suzuki squad, but has had a relatively difficult go of the 2003 GNCC series. I caught up with Kiedrowski while he was on a break from the GNCC series, and fired questions at him about offroad racing, motocross, and what?s next for the star.
Dirt Bike: Hey Mike. First off, what gives with your results this year in GNCC racing? You?ve had four DNF?s so far.
DB: Oh man, lady luck sure isn?t on your side. Other than the DNF?s, you?ve place third at two rounds and eight at another. How have you been riding when you haven?t had the DNF?s?
DB: Now that the points chase is kind of far off for you, what are your goals and aspirations for the rest of the series?
DB: The GNCC series hits a lull in the summer, what are you planning on doing during your down time?
DB: What do you like to do in your free time?
DB: You?re a pretty busy guy! And now on to the questions about motocross. Motocross versus GNCC, what?s more physically demanding?
DB: Ok, hypothetically speaking, let?s say you race Ricky Carmichael in a GNCC race, who do you think would win?
DB: Now the clincher, do you miss motocross?
DB: Would you ever consider coming back and racing motocross?
DB: All things considered, what?s next for Mike Kiedrowski?
