"Like so many aspiring motorcyclists the love for the sport has been in my family for many years."

"My dad is an airline pilot, he raced bikes at the Isle of Man and finished 2nd and 3rd at the Manx Grand Prix. My mum had a Ducati Monster on the road, she is Head of Finance for a Multi Academy Trust of schools. My brother Jake is 20 and is a trainee Pilot in the Royal Navy."



"At the little age of 3 I was already watching MotoGP and various motocross championships and by 4 my dad bought me my first bike, which was a Yamaha PW50."

"When I turned 7 I did my first ever race which was a motocross race on a KTM SX 50. From then on I continued to compete in many motocross events from the 50cc bikes to the 85cc class."

"In 2015, as a family, we decided to switch to tarmac on a Metrakit GP 50, aiming to complete my goal of being a Champion in MotoGP."

"In 2016 I competed in my first full campaign on tarmac and won the GP 70 British Championship. From 2017 I then switched to full size tracks. My journey initially started on a Kawasaki Ninja 300, which I rode in the Superteens and Kawasaki Team Green Junior Cup for 6months gaining 30podiums, 11 wins and an understanding of all the tracks in the UK."

"Unfortunately, the season was cut short due to an injury which resulted in a decision to change to the Moto3 Standard British Superbike class on a Honda NSF250R."

Chasing his dreams has already resulted in some great races. "2018 was my second season on big bikes and I was learning all the time and also The British Talent Cup race was the only race that happened at the Silverstone MotoGP because of bad weather that year. I had a bad start and worked my way up from 18th to 7th place, battling with the leaders for a podium place for the first time."

"Round 1 British Talent Cup at Silverstone in 2019 was my best race ever. There were 10 riders fighting in the leading group and the lead was changing all the time. With a few laps to go of the 30 lap race, I made a mistake and dropped to 9th place. I fought my way back to take the lead into the last three corners and held the position to win by 0.1 seconds with 9 riders separated by 0.7 seconds. It was my first ever win and podium in the British Talent Cup after not coming into 2019 as a favourite."

"In 2018 and 2019 I competed in both the British Talent Cup and British Moto3 class and I successfully won both championships in 2019."

"I really enjoy winning and that 'want to win' gives me satisfaction and drives me to train hard. But I know that is only possible when I am working with the team to get everything as good as it can be and taking points when a win isn't on the cards."

"I not only enjoy racing though. Over the past few years I have taken a real interest in running and every weekend compete in a 5k race which has seen my time drop to a 18:45."

"I finished school early in 2020, however I loved maths and hopefully will pursue that in the future at college and university alongside my racing. I have had many great racing experiences, however in 2020 I'm am looking to top that and try make another step forward in completing my goal of becoming a MotoGP World champion."
