Ep 31: Pat Smage the record breaking NATC champ

 

 

Pat Smage needs little introduction. Even if you are not from the USA, you've probably seen Pat's accomplishments on YouTube and his work with Ryan Young Products in USA.

 

Pat is the record breaking 11 times NATC pro champ.

 

But it's more than that, Since Pat got his first win in expert class way back in 2006, he's only been off the podium once and that was because he'd already secured the title and wanted to try the lines on a 125cc.

 

Pat is a fairly modest fellow despite the size of his trophy cabinet and is a true professional in the way he approaches the sport, the commitment he has to his sponsors, and his ambassadorial role to promote the sport of trials.

 

We discuss Pat's riding in Europe during those early years and how he came to cement his focus on domestic competition.

 

Speaking to Pat you get the sense he doesn't want the limelight, and is happier just riding in the woods but he was very gracious giving his time and going to the edge of his comfort zone to discuss it all on a podcast.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this conversation with Pat...I hope you do as well.
