What I least like about BMX Racing: Offloading the car after a long day of racing.

Regularly visited websites: Yepi Games, Friv Games, Wikipedia and J&R Bicycles

Why I enjoy Racing BMX:  From a young age I enjoyed riding anything with wheels, my bicycle or my PW motorbike. I enjoy the nerves before a big race and the joy of good results! I do not like the disappointments though!

How I got started Racing BMX: My Uncle, Byron Robertson, invited me to try BMX shortly after I learned to ride my bicycle without “fairy wheels” We still often train together.

What do you do when you are not riding: Play Rugby and Motocross.

Suggestions for anyone starting Racing BMX: Wear your protective equipment and have as much fun as you can. BMX has allowed me to represent my country, travel and make great friends all around the world whilst I enjoy riding my bicycle!
