Seth Fargher, Contributing Editor

Growing up in Oregon, most of Seth’s involvement in the powersports world was limited to what he saw in magazines and videos. Following a brief stint in the corporate world, Seth took a flying leap (literally) and moved to California to pursue a career in freestyle motocross. Though short lived, the opportunity immersed him in the industry and gave him a platform to establish himself as an industry insider. Now residing in North Carolina, Seth takes every opportunity to travel (anywhere) in the country if there’s a place to sleep and a machine to be driven.
