CARLTON, MN -- Carlton resident and president of the Carlton County Riders ATV Club, has been named 2021 ATV Safety Instructor of the Year.

Eric Senarighi, is a longtime ATV enthusiast who has taught ATV safety, through the club and individually, for years.

“Carlton County is a great place to ride, and that’s due in no small part to Eric’s dedication to all aspects of the sport,” said Lt. Scott Staples, who supervises DNR conservation officers in District 10.

Senarighi focuses on outreach that ensures ATV riders maintain positive relationships with landowners and others.

He also help in the memorial ATV ride called “Klick it for Kyle,” reminding riders of the importance of wearing helmets and seat belts and practicing safe riding behavior.

The ride is in memory of Kyle Ringhoffer, who died in 2019 in a utility terrain vehicle accident.

Senarighi is among the nearly 1,000 volunteer ATV safety instructors who work with DNR conservation officers to deliver ATV safety training certification.
