Favorite Track: The Rock raceway, South Africa
How did you get into motorcycles? My family has always been motor heads and my dad has been in love with bikes since day one, and the day he let me ride my own bike I couldn't get off it.
Why do you ride? Riding a motorcycle gives me a feeling indescribable. It's a feeling with all the emotions wrapped into one moment of focus, a moment where I think of nothing else. It gives me a feeling I never want to lose.
Career Highlight: Winning all three heats of the South African short circuit nationals on my first sponsored ride on a factory Husqvarna supermoto
Favorite Bike to Ride: 2000 Kawasaki KX265 two stroke supermoto
How do you prepare to go on the track? My dad slaps my back as I pull out the pits, and on the grid I tighten my gloves, pull my helmet strap twice and slap my chest twice.
Goals for 2021: Possibly compete in a few MotoAmerica events, race in twins cup in regionals, do as many supermoto track days as possible.
Why do you choose Bison Track? They are honestly the nicest people as well as the most helpful and professional. And they make the most kickass suits.
