Bio: I started racing when I was 3, following in the footsteps of my 2 older brothers, and I loved every minute of it since then. I won my first championship early on in my career but then I had many second and third place championship finishes along with a heap load of injuries since then. My greatest achievemnet came in 2008 where I qualified for the South African MX2 Grand Prix in Nelspruit and finished 24th overall at the junior world championships in Holland against the worlds best junior racers. I also had 1 of my proudest moments that year when I was awarded South African Senior colors. I then started to race Super Motards and within my short 3 year career I managed to win 2 Natonal S.A titles. I have since then retired from super motard and am currently racing Motocross only for Full Throttle Yamaha.
