Rider bio

 It only took a first introduction for Anthony to be hooked on racing. "When I was 5 years old, my dad showed me a MotoGP race and right away I knew that it was exactly the sport for me. My first ever bike was an electric PocketBike. I rode that bike for very little, just to long enough to learn to ride a motorcycle. Soon my Dad got me a gasoline-powered PocketBike and we started racing."

"I loved racing PocketBikes, specially my 4.2 Polini... I called it the evil bike. Until my RS125, that was my favorite bike. We still have it and when my sister is old-enough, she'll ride it too. What I like the most about racing is how fun it is, and the competition."

While aspiring to be a professional racer Anthony says he also just enjoys being a kid. "My Favorite Subjects in school are Math/Geometry and P.E., also I enjoy drawing, origami, and playing video games."

He has a mix of heroes. "Valentino Rossi because he's the complete racer. Marco Simoncelli because he rode with heart and courage. Casey Stoner because of his natural talent. And Marc Marquez because he's young, hungry and fast and one day I want to race him."

"I want to race against the fastest in the world and one day be a multiple World Champion. When I first started racing I didn't win right away, but I kept trying and as I gained more experience I was able to go faster and faster. I want to see how fast I can be and there is no better place to do that than the Red Bull MotoGP Rookies Cup."
