Rider bio

"My family have been involved in motorcycle racing for many years, I have been in and around racing paddocks from the age of. This includes the British Superbike paddock from 2001 to 2006. By the age of four I wanted to learn to ride a motorcycle, my parents agreed to help me and that is how it all started for me." With such a background it is not surprising that he wants to follow his heroes Barry Sheene, Valentino Rossi and real road race specialist Christian Elkin. "My ambition is to become an exceptional GP racer and the Rookies Cup has given me the opportunity to learn the next important steps in getting to GPs. Although I have not been around any of the circuits yet I am looking forward to racing on them for the first time and especially on a KTM 125." When not on a motorcycle he enjoys swimming, surfing and other outdoor pursuits, at school his favourite subjects are maths and physical education.
