North Carolina’s #100 Jacob Hayes is already a Canadian champion in the Arenacross Tour series. He had hoped to repeat that fete in the MX2 class last season in the Rockstar Energy MX Nationals. Unfortunately, a knee injury sustained in the first turn at round 1 took away that chance. Fast forward a year and the talented 23-year-old will get another shot this summer when he lines up against his Canadian Arenacross nemesis and defending MX2 champion, Cole Thompson. Jacob will be Mike Alessi‘s teammate on the Monster Energy Alpinestars Kawasaki team.

We grabbed friendly rider at his home in Greensboro for a long chat about…everything.
