Rider bio

"It's fantastic to be invited back to do a second season in the Rookies. The 2009 Rookies Cup was great as I had several pole positions and a couple of podiums. For 2010 I need to be more consistent and concentrate on bringing points home from every round. There are some very talented riders in the Rookies Cup again this year and I am sure there will be some great races." "Also for 2010 I now have a manager who has secured me a ride in BSB 125GP with Team Aztec GP, also he has gained me some sponsors to cover some of the costs for the Rookies and BSB," says Danny, obviously pleased with the way his career is going. Not surprisingly he sights James Toseland as his hero as the fellow Englishman supported him with personal encouragement and some useful riding tips in 2009. He first became interested in racing through watching it on TV and now is determined to get into Grand Prix racing. Off the bike he likes fitness training, riding dirt bikes and going to the cinema. ally try to copy the style of anyone, I do my own thing but James Toseland is my hero and I hope he does better than last year."
