Dave Neumeister grew up in Calgary, Alberta, Canada where he learned how to ride motorcycle at the age of 6. While living in Canada, Dave’s primary sports focus was playing ice hockey and lacrosse. Motorcycle riding was mainly a hobby until he started racing in 1988. In 1989, Dave moved with his family to the US where he focused on finishing his education and pursuing his ice hockey career. After graduating college in 1997, Dave moved to Colorado and starting racing Enduros in the local Rocky Mountain Enduro Circuit (RMEC). He quickly advanced through the ranks and went on to win the RMEC championship in 2001. In 2002, Dave focused on the WORCS series and finished the year #8 in the Pro class. During Dave’s entire racing career, he has worked full time as a Mechanical Engineer for MKS Instruments, HPS Products, designing and manufacturing vacuum valves used in the semi-conductor industry. In 2008, after finishing the ISDE in Greece, Dave made the difficult decision to retire from professional level racing to pursue his family life.
