How did you get started in racing?
My dad bought us bikes to ride around the farm, but one trip to the Wild Rose Motocross Track in Calgary and we were both hooked. I was only 5 but my PW80 was quickly traded for a KTM SX50 and we were off to the races. I haven’t missed a race season ever since. 10 years behind bars and I love it!
What is your favourite track and why?
Drumheller and Calgary Pro Track. ‘Drum’ has the best jumps and flow – super-fast track! I grew up riding the Pro Track at the WRMA and love everything about it!
Who is your favourite rider and why?
Dean Wilson and Ken Roczen. Dean grew up in our local area and rode the same tracks as I do, and he made it to the Pro level in the USA! I love watching Roczen ride. He is smooth and always has fun!
What Canadian Pro do you look up to and why?
Keylan Meston and JC Seitz. I have watched Keylan since mini bikes and as a pro, he is a great role model. JC is always there to lend me a hand and encourage me to do better. He is an example of how motocross can be a lifelong dream and to never give up.
Who is your hero?
My parents because they taught me to always do my best, and they are always there to support me.
What are your goals for this season?
I am heading to Cali for some pre-season training. I want to get my Intermediate points early this season and move up before I am 16.
What are your biggest accomplishments?
When I got to the big bikes, my hard work finally paid off. I finally made the move from the back of the pack to the front.
What is your favourite part about going to the races?
The feeling you get when you pull onto the line and my MOTOFAMILY!!
What would you like to when you grow up?
I’m not sure yet…
What do you like to do when you aren’t racing?
I love snowboarding when I can’t ride my YZ250F
Who do you want to thank?
