I’m 32, born May 6, 1984 in Manum, SA. I currently live in Mannum. My racing number is 24. My best champ result came in 2010 placing 2nd in the AMA nationals 450cc class. I will be competing in the mx1 / 450cc class for 2017. If i didn’t race, i really am not sure what career path i would have taken. I’ve always had a passion for music so maybe that would have been something to pursue. My hobbies are playing drums/ guitar, enjoy cycling and spending time with my family and taking my kids hiking / playing. I finished school at year 10 and went straight into my professional motocross career, being my first job. My first race was in 1988, result not sure but i stopped to watch airplanes pass overhead.
I race for the challenge. I’ve been competing in motocross for many years, I’ve always loved the competition in whatever I do. The test to see how I can succeed and how to advance myself is exciting. The process of learning new things, improving your skills, trying to make something better each and everytime. It’s a major test of everything you are. My family inspires and motivates me everyday. Racing is fun, can also be stressful and comes with a lot of demands. It’s important to separate and enjoy my family life away from racing, but when I’m on, it’s on. After all these years, i’m still motivated to compete and work hard at it to win. I try to keep things in perspective and be realistic with goals / agendas set.
