SERCO YAMAHA RACING
Rider Number: 11
Age: 22 – 27/12/94
Hometown: Cairns, QLD
Best Result: 2016 SX2 Champion
Another North Queenslander with speed to burn. Richardson is the current SX2 Australian after returning to Australia to take up a last minute deal with the Serco Yamaha team.
After I finished the junior nationals in 2010, my family and I decided to race in the US as that’s where the best riders and the major championships are so we moved over there and started racing.
the scene is so much bigger there but everyone was super nice to us and we have built some great friendships along the way. The racing is so intense and I love the atmosphere of racing in front of sell out stadiums and big crowds at the outdoors nationals but I was often injured and never really got the results I wanted to.
at the end of the 2016 season, I decided to come home to Cairns and have a bit of a think about what I wanted to do but then Gavin Eales rang and offered me the chance to race Supercross. It was a last minute thing but I decided to go ahead and see what happened. I had a great time and I got lucky at the final round when Hayden Mellross had a bike drama so I ended up winning the championship.
Now I’m focused on winning the MX Nationals. I went back to the US to prepare and had a great off season and its exciting to be racing back in Australia again. I haven’t raced many of the tracks before so a lot of it is new but I’m looking forward to it and plan on getting some good results.
