Christian Craig burst into the pro racing scene in 2009 after a successful amateur career. A number of injuries led to a spotty few years of racing, coming to the decision to retire entirely from racing in 2014. He made a few appearances on a 450 during the 2014 AMA Pro Motocross season, but went back to his day job in Minnesota shortly after the season ended.
After teammate Justin Bogle was injured just prior to the 2015 AMA Pro Motocross season, Craig emerged from retirement to fill in for the 250 class rider. He rode at the front of the pack for nearly every moto, solidifying his status as one of the most talented riders in the field. Officially signing with the team midway through the season, Craig will ride for Team GEICO/AMSOIL/Honda during the 2016 Monster Energy Supercross Season.
