How did you get started in racing?

My dad raced when he was young. When I turned 5, he bought me a PW50 for Christmas and took me to the local MX track. It was my favorite place in the world.

What is your favourite track?

Raymore, because of the big hills.

Who is your favourite rider and why?

Kate Lees, because she helps me with my riding.

What Canadian pro do you look up to?

Colton Facciotti, because he is old like my dad but he is still fast. (Wow, the day after he turned 30, too. Ouch!)

Who is your hero?

My dad.
