From Monday to Friday, John G. George Jr. is a hardworking civil litigation associate at Beirne, Maynard & Parsons.
But by burning the midnight oil on work nights the Texas attorney is often able to make time for adrenaline-inducing dirt bike rides on weekends, when he participates in amateur Motocross races, Texas Lawyer (sub. req.) reports.
George, who spent about 10 years on the track and won a number of youth championships before he went to college and law school, got back into the sport about a year ago. He credits his understanding employer and family for his ability to return to an activity that has, he says, resulted in 25 broken bones.
“It’s a lot of long nights and tired mornings. You do what you’ve got to do for what you love,” he tells the legal publication.
A YouTube video shot from his helmetcam takes viewers along on a race earlier this year that qualified him for the 2014 Rocky Mountain ATV/MC AMA Amateur National Motocross Championship that will take place in Tennessee within the next few weeks.
