What does your training regime look like as you prepare for ASBK 2019?Difficult.. I’ve certainly been pushing my personal limits!! Lots of cardio mixed with body weight workouts, I’m the lightest and fittest I’ve ever been
What’s your favourite thing about ASBK?Can’t say I have a favourite thing, I do quite like the level of competition though. It places all of Australia’s best up and coming talent up against each other and is a great place to learn.
Describe yourself in 3 wordsFocused, Determined, Fast
Tell us something about yourself that your fans may not knowI’m a massive gamer, I have spend MANY late nights on the computer haha
What achievement or milestone are you most proud of?Winning the Period 7 Victorian State Championship in my first year onboard a 1999 Yamaha R6.
What was your first win in ASBK?Placing my entry to this year’s round one 🙂
Who are your sponsors?
Who is your sporting idol?Jonathan Rea
Who is your favourite rider of all time?Hard to pick, I’d probably say its a toss up between Jonathan Rea, Maverick Vinales & Jorge Lorenzo. Obviously all of our Aussie’s who have made it into the World Championship I have a lot of admiration for!!
What’s your favourite track?Phillip Island
One thing you can’t do without on a race weekend?Dad, he has done so much for me since I have shown an interest in racing and I probably wouldn’t be here without him.
What song/s do you listen to, to get into the ‘zone’ before a race?Anything from Pendulum through to some indie rock from Zayde Wolf. One song I like a lot would probably be Gladiator by Zayde Wolf
Do you ride in any other discipline? (ie. Motocross, Trials, Enduro)No not yet, but I will hopefully buy a motocross bike later this year to train on.
