Paul has been involved in Utah motorcycle racing off and on for almost 40 years. As a kid he raced motocross, desert and flat track. Since 2006 he has been a member of the Sage Riders and held many offices within the club including President and Secretary/Treasurer. During this time he has been very active in the land use negotiations that have taken place between the clubs that race in Jericho and the BLM.
Outside of racing, Paul has been involved with land use advocacy throughout the state while he sat as a member of the board and eventually the President of the board for Utah Shared Access Alliance. While working with USA-ALL he attended Congressional hearings to work alongside the AMA to prevent the closure of the San Rafael to motorized recreation.
Paul believes that off-road racing on public land is a privilege that we need to protect and it takes a lot of work behind the scenes to keep it alive and thriving. UMORA as a racing organization will be focused on keeping that privilege alive
