Briar is one of the youngest GNC1 racers in the country and is the first motorcycle rider in his family. The 2012 AMA Rookie of the Year has two GNC1 wins and considers himself stronger on single-cylinder (450) machines than on twins, though he's improving. In 2015, he had two podiums at half-mile races on the bigger bikes; that's similar to the X Games setup. A Californian, Bauman stays in Pennsylvania during the racing season, specifically at the home of siblings Cory and Shayna Texter. He's been dating Shayna for three years. Had a career year in 2015, finishing 5th in GNC1 points, and could battle for an XG medal in 2016.
