What age did you first ride a motorcycle?

I started riding motorcycles when I was about 4 or 5 on dirt bikes and then stopped when I was around 7 for a while and got into road racing at 16.

What got you into motorcycle racing?

I got into road racing through my dad and brother. I would always come and help in the pits and watch and I decided I wanted to give it a go after years of just spectating.

What's your favourite thing about motorcycle racing?

My favourite thing about motorbike racing is the thrill and also the clear-headedness I experience afterwards.

What are your racing goals for this season?

My goal for the season is to hopefully get new PB lap times and work on improving my skills/technique.

Interesting fact about you:

As well as road racing, I do CrossFit and Olympic Weightlifting.
