The Watercraft Journal: My first question for you Jimmy, is how did you get involved in jet skiing?
Jimmy Wilson: My parents raced in the late 80′s and early 90′s. My father owned a jet ski shop as I was growing up and I used to go work on skis with him there. I didnít think that this would lead to me racing with the best stand up riders in the world.
WCJ: I understand that you have won a Novice Ski Limited World Championship, what did it take for you to get there? Can you describe how it felt when you knew you had won?
JW: I won the Novice Ski Limited World Title in 2006. I was still in high school and honestly didnít realize the magnitude of what I had done. I fell in the first turn, got back on the ski and came down the front stretch inside the Top 10. I battled my way back to win the moto and the 2006 Novice Ski Limited World Title.
WCJ: What do you have cooking for the 2014 season?
JW: My goals for 2014 are to win! I think my racing program is better than it has ever been before. We are looking forward to trying to win a National Title and Iím aiming to get on the podium at the World Finals in October.
WCJ: How do you train to hold on to those fast Judge Motorsports-built skis?
JW: Iíve never had skis that ran like his, so Iíve had to learn new ways to train. I do a lot of running and mountain biking, plus some cross fit-style training. I try to ride once or twice a week. I wish I could ride more but it just doesnít work out that way.
