Favorite Track: PittRace (Wampum, PA)!!!

How did you get into motorcycles? I had been riding street for years...then in 2018, I decided to do the California Superbike School. After a weekend riding on track, I was HOOKED! 3 years and 50+ trackdays/races later, it has consumed my life (in a good way!)!

Why do you ride? Few sports have the combination of technique, feel, technical nature, and risk. Combining those skills with the ever-present risk, gets me into a hyper-focused “zone”. LOVE. THE. ZONE.

Career Highlight: I have two... the first, taking my first big roadtrip to Barber Motorsports Park in 2018. I met the girl of my dreams in the paddock that weekend — who is now my girlfriend, fellow Bison-sponsored rider, and LowSide Racing partner, Elle C! (She made me write that) Distant second highlight? Gridding up for my first race was pretty badass too!

Favorite Bike to Ride: Triumph Daytona 675R. For 2021, I’ll be racing a new Yamaha R6 which I’m sure I’ll love...but that Triumph will always have a spot in my heart!

How do you prepare to go on the track? The 3 P’s... Pups (take care of the paddock pups), Poop (...self-explanatory, it’s a nervous thing), and Pause (take that minute to appreciate that you get to do something cool in life)!

Goals for 2021: 1) Find the podium. 2) Teach some newcomers about that track life. 3) Continue to contribute to a positive track community...it’s more about the people than the track!

Why do you choose Bison Track? There are a lot of companies out there that make good gear. But somehow, Bison Track managed make great gear AND create a track family. They pour their heart and soul into this company, and as athletes, we reflect that in The Herd!
