Rider bio

Jordan followed his father into Racing. "He held a British National Licence for racing in England and South Africa. Now I would like to be successful at the Red Bull Rookies, move into Moto3 and try for the World Championship."

At school his favourite subject is history and away from that he enjoys mountain biking and working out at the gym. His racing heroes are Valentino and Kevin Schwantz.

The thing I learnt most at Red Bull Rookies was that communication is very important. Also patience. I think we all arrive at Red Bull Rookies with big expectations and expect to do well straight away. I found that that the way things are done at Red Bull is very different to what I had been used to. The Championship is run very professionally and what I came to realise was that all the people involved – mechanics, rider coaches, suspension guys and of course Alex Batlle (Technical manager) have lots and lots of experience and it is most important to communicate with them and try to explain as best you can how you feel on the bike and what the bike is doing so that they can make changes to suspension, gearing etc. to work through your problems.

Red Bull Rookies is the most important thing to me this year and I hope to be a consistent front runner and podium finisher, winning the championship would be my dream come true, so I hope and pray for that.

My goals for the future is to be able to ride in Moto3. Just to be on the start line would be a major achievement but of course as a racer I would do my absolute best to win and further my career into Moto2 and even MotoGP.
