HISTORY

Every Pro was once an Amateur and every Expert was once a Beginner”. This was no different for me. I started learning to ride at the age of four. Not with a coach or the intention to turn Pro, but with my dad and older brother Leeon and their passion for the outdoors. Unlike a lot of young kids who probably forget their childhoods because TV and computers consumed their lives or simply doing the same thing every day with lack of excitement, my childhood was quite the opposite. I grew up in a little cottage on a 1600-acre farm in the small town of Kyogle in north-eastern NSW surrounded by motocross and bush tracks. My childhood was nothing short of a wild adventure – one that I will never forget.

I don’t have too many interests outside of motocross, but the one thing that sticks out is Evolution. I am not sure where it stemmed from, but I am really interested in learning about the science behind evolution. The history of mankind, how we come about and how the world is transforming.  Aside from that, I am just like anyone else, I enjoy hanging out with my mates, having a BBQ and talking smack.

For 2017 my focus to retain my MX Nationals crown and secure a good ride back in Europe and chase my goal of becoming a world champion. I have the best team behind me, I have worked harder than ever before and I’m ready to race.
