Scariest thing that ever happened to you. Realising I had just broken the largest bone in my body.

Worst crash on a bike. Breaking my left Femur 2 weeks before 2012 Nationals

Best thing about racing BMX. Either reaching the peak of a jump and just floating or the second before the beaps on the gate, there is nothing else to think about but smashing those pedals out, I find I'm so focused I shut out everything and just ride.

What keeps you motivated. The dream of being the best rider in my age.

Advice for young BMXer’s. Just have fun don't put pressure on yourself if you want it bad enough, put in the effort and you'll get there, find your desire and enjoy the ride. Ride Hard.

People to thank.  Redline Australia, family and friends and all the people that have supported me throughout my career.
