HISTORY

Since my first race in 2001 motorcycling has always been my biggest passion, throughout my career I changed disciplines from motocross, enduro, flat track and road racing to eventually return back to motocross. Since turning senior in 2010 I have enjoyed great success in the sport including winning the 2012 Australian U19 Supercross championship, finishing runner up in the 2013 Australian MX2 Motocross championship, 6 state title championship wins and 25 career national podiums in Supercross and motocross. After a year away from the sport where I was able to recover from previous injuries and buy my first home I am now returning with hopes of again becoming a front runner and one day fulfilling my life long goal of racing overseas. Although being a privateer and working a full time job, I am confident with the correct time and preparation I will reach my goals.
