Rider bio

"I am in Grade 9 this year and now attend a Home School centre, which works better for me when racing overseas for 6 months of the year. My favourite subject at school is Business studies." Brad enjoys Swimming, cycling and water skiing. Though he started his motorsport on 4 wheels racing karts and got the speed bug there once he swapped to motorcycle racing he fell in love with it. "I want to become a champion and hold as many lap records as possible. My aim is to become a works rider for a great team like my hero's Rossi and Haga. I would like to have a long career in racing and when I eventually stop racing and winning myself I would still like to be involved with motorbikes and run my own team."
