Why I enjoy Racing BMX: I Love the adrenalin rush and the challenge of racing a new track whenever possible. Worlds brings on a different level of riding and testing your ability. Racing with the youngsters in South Africa that are half my age, making friends all over the world and sharing the excitement of pedaling a bicycle and jumping those BIG jumps!

What do you do when you are not riding: Spend as much time with my family as I can and train hard.

Suggestions for anyone starting Racing BMX: Ride because you enjoy it, race because you want to test yourself but remember……..always smile! The older riders are always available to help and give advise. Most importantly ride with other riders. We all here for one reason….. the KICK of being on a BMX
