Cam Petersen overcomes adversity to win the 2020 MotoAmerica Stock 1000
When it came to racing motorcycles, Cam Petersen didn’t really have a choice. “I’ve been riding bikes since I was four years old,” he says. “My dad and his three brothers raced all around the world, and I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t around bikes. Racing was inevitable.”
So when Petersen won the Stock 1000 championship earlier in October, the casual observer might think the victory was effortless for the 25-year-old from South Africa. In reality, it was the result of years of hard work and perseverance in the face of many hardships that would have overwhelmed others.
