We had the good fortune of connecting with Addison Emory IV and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Addison, what is the most important factor behind your success?
just being determined. no matter what race i was at or anything, i always made sure to give it my everything.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
my career has definitely been a long road. my parents made me go to school and get a job when i was younger. so i was never training full time like everyone else. so once i graduated i moved out to train full time. i saved all my money from working. there’s no easy road in this sport unless you get noticed at a really young age. but i’ve had multiple injuries, that make you question even wanting to ride again, but if you want something badly enough nothing will hold you back. never hold back from your dream. if you are determined, nothing seems like a set back in the long run it just build a better foundation.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
definitely my parents. i wouldn’t be were i’m at in my career with out them being as dedicated as i am.
