Progress is vital to success in any path you choose. Not every champion is blessed with an innate natural talent. Work beats talent when talent doesn’t work, and while we are learning more about Texas Native, Pierce Knight, progression and a sound work ethic stand out beyond anything.
While he was unable to finish Loretta’s in 2020 after a DNF in his first 450 Pro Sport, his evolution of improvement throughout his amateur career is noteworthy, highlighted by a 5th OA in 450 B Limited in 2019. And that result came after a dismal first moto finish of 22nd. Pierce came back to finish the week strong with 2-3 moto finishes, setting himself up as a kid to keep an eye on moving forward.
Pierce recently hooked up with our first ever Red Program film guru, Seth Heggie, at a private training facility in Texas to show the Vurb world that the grind is paying off. With a smooth, yet aggressive riding style, we’re excited to see what a healthy Pierce will do once the amateur season kicks off in Texas in a few months.
