Through the years there have been many amateur motocross kids with hype of being the next superstar following them. Ricky Carmichael, James Stewart, and Adam Cianciarulo are just a couple of examples. Few, if any have had the level of criticism as well as praise from fans that Haiden ‘Dangerboy’ Deegan has had. In the day of social media, it’s much easier to not only stay connected to what your favorite riders are doing but also voice an opinion or ‘troll’ someone you are not a fan of. I personally don’t wish that kind of criticism on anyone, let alone a 16-year-old kid. Regardless, Haiden is proving he’s currently one of the best amateurs in the world with his results and anyone who has a chance to chat with him will see he’s a well-mannered kid that just wants to race his dirt bike. Haiden called us up to have a check-in post Mini O’s as he’s about to start Supercross Futures preparations.
