ABOUT ME

The 19 year old Queenslander has established himself as one of the most promising motocross and supercross talents in Australia. An untimely incident at the final round of the 2016 MX Nationals cost Nathan the MX2 class lead and left him having to settle with 3rd place in the series overall. Nathan’s steady rise through the ranks now sees him take the ultimate step-up into the MX1 (450cc category) with the MEGA Bulk Fuels Monster Energy Kawasaki Racing Team and his factory KX450F.

Why do I Race: “Well I race because I love the sport definitely. I guess you can say it’s all I’ve done growing up and I’ve never looked another way. My dad got me into riding at a very young age and I’m glad he did because I love it and I don’t know what I would do if I wasn’t racing.”

What motivates/inspires me: “That feeling of winning keeps me going and motivated every day”

My Personality: “I like to joke around, have fun and laugh a lot but I’m very focused and determined when I need to be.”

My Story: “Dad got me into racing at a young age. I was never really inside the top ten when I was young but loved racing, mostly because of the time I had hanging with dad. Over the years I got more competitive and started progressing so I achieved better results. I picked up my first supported ride in 2013 and that kicked it off for me. We gave it 100% from there and it allowed us to get the results and move into the seniors and here we are.”
