With a father who was a professional motocrosser, it’s tempting to assume that Christian Craig is a typical racer, but the truth is that his path has been somewhat unconventional. The 29-year-old El Cajon native began his professional career in 2009, but injuries prompted him to retire from the sport in 2013 and focus on his family. He began working a construction job in Minnesota but couldn’t stay away from the sport and raced part-time in 2014 before campaigning most of the 2015 outdoor season as a fill-in rider on the GEICO Honda team. He officially joined that squad the following season and has been with them ever since, although he has also served as a substitute rider for the Team Honda HRC on a number of occasions. Currently, Craig is filling in for Ken Roczen, riding the factory CRF450R for the entire 2020 AMA Pro Motocross series.
