HISTORY

There was always dirt bikes in my family as my father rode around in the bush and then my older brother also got a bike. After that it was my turn and I remember getting a PW50 as my first bike.

We would all head into the bush and go riding as a family and it was awesome fun until one day I was hauling along on my 50 when I couldn’t stop and nearly got cleaned up by this massive logging truck and Mum started going off. She screamed that we weren’t allowed to ride in the bush anymore and if we wanted to keep riding then it would have to be on a closed circuit – so we started racing.

I had a pretty good junior career but never won many Australian junior championships, something always went wrong during that week but I still won plenty of other things and have great memories of racing as a kid.

I then turned senior in 2011, raced MXD that year before going to MX2 in 2013 and then into MX1 in 2014. Now a child hood dream has come true riding for CDR Yamaha and I’m really excited to get the season under way.

Away from bikes I like riding my BMX or scooter and when I was injured a few years ago I started doing some filming and photography so that’s been a bit of a hobby of mine as well but right now it’s all riding and training and trying to achieve my goals for this year.
