30A resident and Realtor Bryon Dumas has a secret identity outside of his everyday life.

While some spend their weekends and free time golfing and fishing, Dumas is going as fast at 175 mph, racing his Ducati against competitors half of his age.

"It's kind of like a Clark Kent situation," he said.

Dumas' first started riding motorcycles at 8 years old. At 37, he decided to "step it up," with the famous Italian bike manufacturer. Today, at 52, the father-of-two is a national-title holding racer.

"People usually stop before they get to my age," the father-of-two joked.

Age didn't stop Dumas as he took home two first-place titles from the Sportsmen Series and National Challenge races in Birmingham, Ala. in October. 

"I was in novice class, but I've now been bumped up to expert class," he said. "It felt good to bring something national back home to the beach."
