Chris Siglan - AFM #1 FOR 2012

Chris Siglan - AFM #1 FOR 2012

Prior to 2001, Chris had never even been on a bike, even a dirt bike. He went to college in Arizona, where his roommate had a street bike. Chris borrowed it (a lot), starting out in a parking lot, and was hooked. He came back to California, got a job writing motorcycle service jobs for a shop, and met Will Morton.

Will was an AFM racer who kept telling Chris stories about how fun it was to go racing. Chris came to the track to watch Will ride in 1999 and 2000, and then decided he had to try it himself.

Will had a spare 125, so Chris signed himself up for a few track days and then started racing in 2001, with virtually no street experience! He talked to everyone, and absorbed everything like a sponge. Ken Hill provided some valuable advice and coaching. After a year on the 125, Chris graduated up to a 600cc bike and entered more classes.

Chris has raced with WSMC (in 2004, where he won a couple 600cc championships), WERA, MRA, did the entire AMA season in 2007, and CCS Daytona. His favorite tracks? Thunderhill, because he races there so often, and he also likes Road America.

AFM #13 Joe Montoya tries the outside line around #1 Frank Mazur in 1982

Former AFM President Joe Montoya died Sunday while riding his street bike, after a car crossed a double yellow line on Redwood Road in Castro Valley, California and hit him.

According to the local California Highway Patrol website, the crash occurred at 4:17 p.m. and Montoya was declared dead at the scene.

Montoya, who we believe was in his mid-50s, raced as Team Bozo with his brother Wayne and ran AFM North for 17 years, from 1989 through 2005.
