How did you get started in racing?
I got into racing from watching it on TV all the time when I was younger. My brother and I decided to try riding at Sand Del Lee
and I loved it! So we decided to try racing. We have been racing ever since then.
What is your favourite track and why?
My favourite track would have to be Sand Del Lee because it is my home track. I have learned so much there and it is a really fun
and flowing track!
Who is your favourite rider and why?
Well, if Justin Barcia was still on a 250 it would be him. But he isn’t, so my next favourite would have to be Ryan Villopoto because he is such a smooth rider! He is so fast and has awesome style; I just love watching him ride!
What Canadian Pro do you look up to and why?
I would probably have to pick Jeremy Medaglia, because I love his riding style! It is so much [fun] to watch him ride. He is a
really cool guy on and off the track!
Who is your hero?
My hero would have to be Jeremy Medaglia.
What are your goals for this season?
My goal this season is to try and win the Intermediate championship at the [Parts Canada] Walton TransCan and get a pro number!
What are your biggest accomplishments?
My biggest accomplishments would have to be winning both MX2 and MX3 Intermediate championships!
What is your favourite part about going to the races?
My favourite part of going to the races, other than actually racing, would have to be hanging out with friends in between motos.
What would you like to when you grow up?
To be able to keep doing what I love!
What do you like to do when you aren’t racing?
I like to do a lot of things: hangout with friends, top karting, video games… lots of video games (laughs).
Who would you like to thank?
Mx101, Kevin and Johnny, Fox Canada, Yamaha Canada, EKS Brand Goggles, mom and dad, brother for being my mechanic, SSS suspension, Decal Works, Kodiak sheds, Toby Bartlett, the entire MX101 talent factory team, and all my friends and family that have helped me out all year!
