Hi, my name is Jake Gagne. My discipline is AMA Pro Road Racing. My friends call me Jake. I was born on 27 August 1993 in Ramona, California, USA . My special talent is racing motorcycles. My philosophy of life is have fun and enjoy life. The most important person in my life is my parents and my family. My favourite food is mexican food. My favourite music is punk rock/rock.


Jake Gagne was born in Ramona, California, USA, where he still resides. To date, Jake has won over 300 races in his 10 years of racing, managing to strike a balance between school and a successful career on the track by graduating with a 4.0 GPA.

The hard-working and dedicated athlete's first major title came in 2005, when he became Amateur National Motocross Champion. In 2009, the American rider began competing in the first running of the AMA Pro Racing Supersport East series, earning himself a respectable sixth place. A year later in 2010, Jake became Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup World Champion, taking four rounds that ultimately earned him the title. He returned for the 2010 AMA PRo Racing SuperSport West championship, taking two podiums at Daytona.
