What race directors and coordinators are saying:


I've met you a couple of times at the COS officials' meeting but had never had the opportunity to ride with one of your providers until this weekend. Early in the season, I sent all the RDs I work with your info for Finish Line and for a race this past weekend, this RD needed someone and hired one of your drivers.

What a pleasure it was to ride with Mike Mitchell from Virginia! He was fantastic, experienced in riding as well as working a race. As someone who had a driver drop his motorcycle with me on it during my first season officiating, you can imagine that a competent person is the utmost importance. Mike was professional and intuitive in helping me complete my duties as Head Official. His motorcycle was in perfect condition and I truly appreciated the heated seats! What a difference it made!

I shared my impressions with the RD, Jason Biggs of Finish Strong as well. Great job!

"Working with Finish Line Motor Escort was a great experience for Revolution3 in 2012, and we are looking forward to a continued working relationship with them for the foreseeable future.

They are safe, professional and always courteous. The drivers understand road conditions and are very experienced in carrying race day crew; they understand the needs of local officials, race officials, and the requirements of photographers covering each race. Finish Line Motor Escort’s very capable crew eliminated the worry of our race day motorcycle needs regarding the safety of our race officials & media team. 

I would be pleased to recommend Merlin and his crew to any Race Director. "

LJ White, Director Revolution3

"The tight, hilly bike course and draft legal rules used in the Collegiate Community Triathlon at Lake Lure demand extreme skill and competency from a motorcycle marshal. Based on their stellar performance and professional service in the 2012 event, I would highly recommend, and will always use, the drivers with Finish line Motor Escorts to safely and efficiently usher our race officials during any multisport competition."

Brad Hecker, C2 Racing

"Merlin and FINISH LINE MOTOR ESCORT has been an incredible asset to the safety and execution of my races. They are always on time and allowed each event to be worry free for all participants and USAT referees. They are true professionals."

Staci Brode, PlayTri Races

"I have been been riding with Merlin House and his associates for over 5 years. Specifically I ride as a passenger during the bike course of triathlons in events containing age group and Pro-Rules waves. As a USAT Official, it is nice to know that the motorcycle driver I am with is professional, capable and that I can trust my safety to them while I concentrate on my duties throughout the day as the passenger. This team is polite, friendly and very well prepared. As a team, they are able to communicate with each other which is a real plus for me as I am generally out of contact with my fellow officials on the bike course. They are well known in our area for being top notch - a reputation that is well deserved."

Merry Prather, USAT Cat 1 Official

I've been refereeing USAT events now for over 13 years and also officiated WTC events; I can say unequivocally that Finish Line Motor Escort is the most professional group of motorcyclists I've had the privilege of riding with. They are timely and take safety first which is certainly the most important factor when you are involved with any type of sporting event. They are professional in every sense of the word, from their riding techniques to understanding each and every event they attend. I would recommend Finish Line Motor Escort to race coordinators across the nation when it comes to any USAT or WTC events because they not only know what they are doing but they do it well.
