Why I race:
I race because I love it. I love putting gin all the hard work during the week and on race day, because when it all comes together it’s the best feeling in the world. You just cant beat the rush you get when lining up on a full gate with 39 other guys.
What Motivates/Inspires me:
I would definitely say wanting to win and training my arse off all pre-season is what motivates me. I love knowing that I have put the work in during the week and when the race day comes, I know I am ready to go.
I definitely think watching the guys in Europe and America and how good they are inspires me to keep pushing forward and hopefully get there one day.
Who am I:
I believe I am a very laid back, easy going person, however very determined when I put my mind to a goal.
I was born in South Africa, I then moved to England with my family when I was 6 years old. We lived there for 4 years, I did some racing there before moving to Perth, Australia at the end of 2006. I raced the WA series through my junior career with the Wellard Yamaha team and got to race two Australian Junior Nationals in 2008 and 2011, winning 2008 and placing 3rd in 2011. I continued to race in WA until I was 18, and then decided to move across to Sydney to pursue the MX Nationals.
It is now my 4th year in Sydney and ,y 3rd season on-board the Honda CRF250R with now Penrite-Pirelli CRF Honda Racing.
