Race background in 30 wordsAt 20yo Brendan’s 1st race was at Oran Park on his GSXR750 roadbike. He competed in a few club races over the next year, then 250cc production racing with the Aprillia Challenge in 2001. In 2002 Brendan raced his first GSXR1000 to take an equal 3rd in the 2002 NSW Superbike State titles. 2003 was a lost opportunity; Brendan was fully sponsored when he broke his neck at Oran Park and missed the season. Brendan returned self funded in 2004 to the ASBK and completed limited rounds with a high of 7th place at Winton that year. Brendan left racing in 2004 and returned in 2015.
Embarassing fact about you?I got stuck in a pushbike once – Well I thought I was stuck: I went for a ride to clear my head… my clip in pedal broke and my shoe was stuck to the bike; I spent the next half hour looking for tools to detach my foot from the bike; I rode to my brothers house and climbed some stairs and looked through my car all with the bike attached. After looking everywhere for the tool I stood in my kitchen, bike attached, and phoned my mate…”You can take your foot out of the shoe thought can’t you?” … I looked down at the velcro strap that had been available the whole time… Yep!
