Overview

Ike Hebert has a dream, to become a champion motocross racer. But he has many obstacles to overcome. He is being raised by a single Mom, with little resources; he has no money, no motorcycles, no friends, and is failing 9th grade.

Then he meets Mr. Gonzales, an outcast junkyard dealer who has some very old dirt bikes. The two team up to build the bikes, and Ike fans the flame of his dream into reality. But all is threatened when Ike discovers Mr. Gonzales' secret from his past and gets caught up in a crime that will kill his dream.

Join Ike as he rediscovers motivation to succeed in school, gets his first job, overcomes bullying, solves a crime and moves his dream into reality. You'll get an inside look at the culture of south Louisiana, amateur motocross racing and the importance that mentors play in the lives of teenagers.

This is the first book in the Dirt Bike Ike trilogy.
