Dirt bike rider earns second place

Trentyn Roelofs, age 8, had a great first year of dirt bike riding, earning enough points to place second in the state in both the 50cc senior class and 50cc sport class.
The Beach third-grader started practicing on his new KTM bikes in March when there was still snow on the ground and continued to dedicate time to his riding through the cold and rain until the season started in April. He traveled all over the state to compete, culminating in the SJO state fair series last month.

Trentyn is shown here with his trophies and his big family: brother Jaxen with mom Brooke, Step-dad Jeremy, sister Alyssa, Step-mom Sarah with brother Karson, and Dad Brent.

Trentyn is the son of Brooke Roelofs and Jeremy Robinson, and Brent & Sara Roelofs all of Cedar Springs.
Way to go, Trentyn!
