How does FOX contribute to your success?
The handling of a motocross bike is the most important part in building a great race bike. The setup we have with FOX products allows me to forget about what the bike is doing and concentrate on what I'm doing.
Tell us about your best race or event and how it changed you.
I just ride every race to the best of my abilities and while several races stand out, my life changing races are still to come.
Tell us about your bike/vehicle setup.
Factory Yamaha YZ250F
What else is in your garage?
50's, scooters, a couple of cars that I am doing up and that's about it.
What's your training regimen?
Riding, swimming and gym work.
Any major injuries, and how did you recover?
Plenty of injures. Broken neck in 2008 and was off the bike and in hospital for long periods. Dodgy knees and the odd flesh wound on the elbows.
What's your typical pre-race/event meal? Guilty pleasure?
I just try to eat well all the time rather than anything special before the race. I do like a green Rockstar when no one is watching.
How do you determine which races or events to enter each year?
By contract. Yamaha Australia tells me where to race and that's what I do.
What motivated you to get started professionally?
I don't like working a real job. Much rather ride dirt bikes.
What separates you from other professional athletes?
What would you be doing if you weren't a professional athlete?
Don't know, never really thought about doing anything else.
What's the best thing about being a professional athlete?
To race in front of big crowds and get paid to do something I love doing.
What other sports are you interested in?
Football, and BMX.
Any advice to the readers dreaming to turn pro?
Work hard and believe in yourself.
What are your favorite magazines and websites?
Dirt Action Mag, Racer X, Facebook and Youtube.
Who is your hero?
