How did you get started in racing?
My dad bought me a four-wheeler when I was 2! I raced at Cochrane’s for the very first time. Then he bought me a PW 50 .
What is your favourite track and why?
My favorite track is Madoc. I love the speed and jumps!
Who is your favourite rider and why?
My favourite rider is Ryan Dungey. I look up to him and one day I hope to ride like him. Plus, he rides KTM with a smiling face with smiling eyes.
What Canadian Pro do you look up to and why?
I look up to Kelcey Jones. She may not be a Pro, but she’s a ladies Pro to me! We train together every night, working out and teaching each other different things.
Who is your hero?
My hero is my dad, Royce. He got me started in this sport and he works hard to get us to the track every weekend. Plus, he’s my mechanic and never fails me. He’s the only one I know who can change a major part and still have me back out for second heat. We always do everything together.
What are your goals for this season, and what is it going to take to reach them?
My goal is to try my best in the Supermini Challenge. I’m hoping for top 3. I will train hard to try and get there. Plus, I want to try a few different tracks this year.
What are your biggest accomplishments?
My biggest accomplishment was getting on the podium in the Supermini class on my 65.
What is your favourite part about going to the races?
My favourite part of going to the races is hanging with my family and friends every weekend and doing what I love.
What do you like to do when you aren’t racing?
I like to snowboard in the off-season, ride pit bikes and help my dad in the garage.
Who would you like to thank?
I would like to thank my dad and mom for always being here for me and never giving up on me. They make sure we are always at the tracks no matter what. Also, my sister for pushing me. Also, our friends the Lunns and Thirnbecks for always giving us a helping hand when needed.
