About David Pingree:
Growing up in Montana far away from the hustle and bustle of the SoCal motocross scene, few thought David Pingree would go on to accomplish the racing successes he did. In a professional career that spanned from 1993 to 2004 “Ping” was able to score 71 top 10 finishes in motocross and supercross competition. His first win came as a member of Mitch Payton’s Pro Circuit Kawasaki team in San Jose, CA in 1995 and the last win of his career came in 2002 in Anaheim, CA as the first American rider to win a supercross on a KTM. During his career, Pingree finished in the Top 5 in the points standings five times including third overall in 1995 and second overall in 2000.
Following his supercross and motocross career, Pingree found success in Supermoto racing winning several races and an X-Games medal along the way. His Supermoto career transitioned into a team manager position with the Troy Lee Designs Racing team where he ran the team for several years at its inception.
Today Pingree is a Firefighter/Paramedic in California and continues to be a part of motocross and supercross by writing columns and special features as an Editor-at-Large for RacerX.
