Starting his second season in the Rookies Cup he knows he has to make good on the fantastic promise of his early season performances in 2009. The way he started his Rookies Career, running right at the front in the early races made it look as though he would soon be a podium regular and perhaps a race winner. That didn't happen but he remained a solid performer. His aims are simple and clear. "I want to follow my hero Valentino Rossi and be a World Champion. I start riding motocross when I was 6 and then I just thought it was fun. Then when i was 12 I tried my first road racing bike and I have enjoyed that ever since." Away from the track he enjoys hanging out with his friends and playing guitar. It's no surprise that he lists music and gymnastics and his favourite subjects at school.
