395 – Brett Stralo – OVN Ambassador Athlete

Ever experienced peace through the thrill of motorcycle riding? I recently discussed this on Oscar Mike Radio with Brett Stralo, a professional motocross racer and former AH-64 Apache helicopter mechanic in the U.S. Army. Brett shared how motocross offers him tranquility and focus, serving as a form of therapy, especially after his military service. The intensity of racing, surprisingly, brings about a therapeutic calm.

Brett’s journey took him from military service to rediscovering his passion for dirt biking and turning professional at age 30. He emphasized the therapeutic aspects of motocross in helping veterans transition to civilian life. Through his Warrior Max program, Brett provides camaraderie and mental health support on the track, aiming to reduce veteran suicide rates.

Our conversation also covered the technological evolution in motocross, noting advancements in bike performance and suspension. Legends like McGrath, Carmichael, and Stewart have significantly shaped the sport. Brett expressed his gratitude for the motocross industry’s role in supporting veterans and discussed his work with Operation Vet Now, where he promotes mental health and honors fallen soldiers.

Brett’s commitment to expanding his foundation and participating in outdoor rounds highlights his dedication to giving back. For more about his efforts and to support veteran mental health, visit Operation Vet Now. https://opvetnow.org/

Thank you, Brett, for your inspiring contributions both on and off the track.
