When Nadr was 14, he and his family moved from Cairo, Egypt, to Portland, Oregon. This was a significant change in his life but it wasn’t until after Nadr moved to San Francisco to study industrial design that he discovered motorcycles. Motorcycle road racing just didn’t exist in Egypt.
Not having any formal motorcycle training, Nadr rode all over the Bay Area teaching himself how to ride. After a few years of riding, he was involved in an accident in which he broke his clavicle. This didn’t stop him from having the passion for motorcycles.
His mother suggested he take his motorcycle to the track if he wanted to go fast. What great advice that was. He attended one track day and was hooked, so he took the Roadracing School the following track day to receive his race license.
Nadr started road racing in 2007 and competed in one race with the American Federation of Motorcyclists (AFM) before he was put into the expert classes to race the rest of the season. Even though he held a novice license, he did very well and received a trophy for a top novice win. San Jose Yamaha took notice of Nadr and stepped up with a brand new bike for him to race the next season.
Since then Nadr has competed with AFM, Utah Sportbike Association (UTSBA), and in 2009 received his pro license with AMA Pro Racing. San Jose Yamaha has been there every step of the way helping him get one step closer to achieving his goals.
Nadr has achieved all this while working as well as going to school at the Academy of Art University. He has graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Industrial Design specializing in motorcycle and transportation design. Motorcycles and racing are his passion.
Finished seveth in AMA Pro Motorcycle-Superstore.com SuperSport at Infineon Raceway and qualified fifth in the class at Miller Motorsports Park.
