RIP Rick Hocking National #13

Sad news, Rick Hocking took his life on Tuesday. I had talked with Rick about a month ago at our off road riding area here in Tracy, Carnegie SVRA. He had just moved to Tracy.
Lately Rick was sponsored to race vintage flat track by my old school mate and best friend Dave Zanotti who also sponsors Jake Johnson who recently won his first AMA Pro Grand National Championship. Dave's Dad Mario Zanotti sponsored Steve Ekland who also won the Championship under Zanotti Enterprises.

The Zanotti's tought me to ride on an Italain motocross bike, it was one of the bikes Dave practiced on for his flat track racing. Kinda funny all may friends when I was kid were flat trackers and I went off to race Motocross.

Who knows why people do that but it is always sad when it happens.
