May 24, 2013 – Encinitas, CA – Not only was Donnie Hansen a national Supercross, Motocross and MX des Nations champion, but an important part of our motocross DNA. After his lucrative racing career Donnie went on to become a coach and trainer, and has made an impact on countless competitors in our sport. This weekend, during the Lucas Oil Pro Motocross Championship in Thunder Valley, Colorado, Donnie Hansen will present the Legends to Heroes award to one of those he mentored, Andrew Short.
Short is a veteran top competitor in the Pro Motocross ranks, and throughout his racing career the Colorado native has demonstrated boundless talent and determination. His ability to persevere is evident by his actions this past year, regaining momentum as a fan favorite on his BTO KTM. Andrew, also known as â€œShorty,â€ is recognized as one of the â€œgood guysâ€ of motocross, always willing to take time for his many appreciative fans and supporters. His humble demeanor is predominantly due to the fact that Shorty had to fight his way to the top, and he truly values everything that he’s accomplished.
