#22 Jeff Lauritsen
1914 Excelsior 7-SC
Jeff Lauritsen # 22 will be riding a 1916 Excelsior. Jeff first became interested in the cannonball run when he was introduced to it in 2012 as a spectator in Sturgis SD. As an avid rider and collector of antique motorcycles, Jeff fell in love with the cannonball run and the challenge that came along with it. Jeff joined the Cannonball team in 2014, returning for the 2016, and 2018 rides. It’s the ride, the challenge, and the people that has kept Jeff and his team coming back for more. They look forward to reuniting with the cannonball family in 2021 for yet another epic adventure.
Keegan Wrieth will be the alternate rider for number “22” Jeff Lauritsen. Keegan is Jeff’s grandson, and has been riding motorcycles since he was 3 years old. Keegan was 9, when Grandpa Jeff purchased a 2008 Yamaha 90cc dirt bike for him for Christmas. He has since rebuilt a 1983 Honda Shadow 500 from Grandpa Jeff as part of his small engine class in high school. He currently owns a 2005 Kawasaki Vulcan 1600 which was his first purchase as an adult on his own.
Keegan has followed his grandpa Jeff on 3 Cannonball tours, and is beyond excited to participate with him in the 2021 run!
