Rider bio

While not directly following his father's career path he certainly has racing in his veins. "My dad took part in Speedway races and opened a motorcycle shop later, so I come from a Motorsport family."

"When I was 6 years old I started riding a child quad bike in our garden. One year later there was a child motorcycle in my dad's motorcycle shop. He said when I can push the bike I will be allowed to ride it. So I tried but unfortunately I knocked over the bike. Even though I knocked it over I was allowed to ride the bike. So I rode in the fields often. After some time I took part in my first race."

2010 Supermoto racing

"My dad still helps me in my career. I came to racing because of him and he supports me now."

ADAC Minibike Cup 2012

From supermoto championships he has progressed to road racing but only in 2015 on a thoroughbred road racer. "In 2015 I learned how to ride a real racing bike and to work with a professional environment."

"My best race was the IDM Moto3 race in Schleiz 2015. I had a nice battle against some competitors and I won the battle in front of a large crowd of spectators. It was my first victory in the IDM Moto3 Standard class."

"When I look back to the 2016 Rookies Cup season I learned that nothing comes to you for free and that you have to work for your expectations and dreams to make them come true."

"Slippery Assen but I saved it this time - 2016"

"My best race in 2016 was the first Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup race in Assen."

"I was riding in the top 5 and I fought for the podium in very difficult conditions. Unfortunately I crashed out in the end but this race was much fun and gave me a lot of confidence."

Going for it Jerez race 1 - 2016

"After my good preparation in the winter I want to keep improving in the 2017 season and want to fight for the top positions in the races."

"My favourite tracks are stop and go tracks. I like tight corners with hard breaking zones most."

At school he enjoys sports and business administration. In his free time he likes to meet friends and ride his mountain bike. Of course his main goal is to follow heroes Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.

"It is my goal to be a professional road racing and earn my money with racing." But it is not all about the cash. "The best in racing is to have fun on the bike and to win races. But I also like it to improve the bike with the team and making a good result afterwards."
