From toddler to pre-teen, Tyler kept on riding until he started racing at age 12. He fell in love with racing and has persevered ever since, even when things weren't going his way (as they sometimes do). According to Tyler, Rhonda never quit on him, which prevented him from quitting on himself. He credits her with having the most influence over his career and for pushing him until his goals became realities. Tyler qualified for the Olympic trials in 2008 and that confirmed what his results had already revealed, that he's bound for the international podium.
