Meet Your Trailboss – Daryl Folks
Daryl Folks is a lifelong Nevadan who has grown up riding and racing dirtbikes in the Silver State.
Daryl’s father opened Sportsman Cycle, one of the top selling KTM dealerships in the nation, when Daryl was only three years old and his family has been firmly entrenched in the world of dirtbikes and off-road riding ever since.
Daryl retired from racing at the end of 2003 after winning fourteen #1 plates in various racing associations. His love of riding didn’t end with his racing career. Daryl started the Trac-On trail ride series to share his love of riding and his extensive knowledge of Nevada trails with others. Daryl has made it his personal commitment to resurrect long forgotten race courses in beautiful and historic areas of Nevada and get them acknowledged by the BLM as official trails.
