I originally come from an Enduro motorbike background. I had always ridden mountain bikes but just for the fun of it. Then I went riding with the local bike shop owner one afternoon and he said ” I should get into racing”. Eventually I started to win and that’s all I wanted to do. Once that start gun goes off I have 110% focus and the drive to win. I want to be the best and sometime I take risks to try to achieve that goal.
I currently work full time at Bike Culture in Canberra. When I’m not working or training I like to do some ‘freeriding’, hunting, moto riding, and just going fast and having fun.
The people I look up to are people I ride with regularly. If it wasn’t for Target Trek and the people who run it basically I wouldn’t have made it to the World Champs or even National Champs. So I truly appreciate what the team has done for us as athletes. It’s also like a family in our team.
