Rider bio

Naturally he became interested in racing as he travelled the Grand Prix circuits of Europe as an infant and then grew up in the race paddocks of Britain while his father Niall won XX British Superbike Championships following an accomplished Grand Prix career. Like his father he is a thoughtful racer who's heroes are Ben Spies and Valentino Rossi, when he is not on his motorcycle he enjoys cycling and at school engineering which will certainly help him understand his race bike. His love of excitement isn't limited to the race track and he did a ski-dive (parachute jump) when he was only 15.
