Personal: Fun, Active and Outgoing. Motocross is a lifestyle! I enjoy school and all sports especially soccer and snowboarding.
Racing Background: 2013 was very successful for me and I truly believe it was my hard work and determination that paid off. It was an honor to represent our country at the FIM JR World Championship in Czech Republic and I am very proud to have brought home the Gold in the 65 class which also helped Team USA bring home GOLD. I am also proud to say that I won the AMA National Championship at Loretta Lynn’s. Winning has not come easy for me as I have faced some major challenges at an early age but I can say I feel it has made me stronger. Even after two major hip surgeries I have pushed beyond adversity and moved my way to the top.
At the beginning of 2012, I returned from my second surgery and that year I was inside the top five with lap times consistently in the top three. I won the Hangtown Amateur National in the 65 class and finished 2nd at Mammoth with a 3rd overall. Then at the end of 2012, I had one more setback; I broke my humerus during the first day of racing at The Dodge. This was just one more challenge I had to face and I would get beyond it. Then 2013 came, Spring Nationals were here and I felt ready. I opened up my season at Oakhill and finished with a Championship, 2nd and 3rd overall. From there I went on to win five National Championships, one World Championship and seven National Podium finishes. It truly was a great year!
The overall experience has been incredible. I always give 110% because I know that’s what it takes to be one of the best riders in the country.
2014 Goals: I plan to train hard; working on corners, speed, and consistency. I hope to win more National Titles and represent USA at the FIM JR Motocross World Championship again. You will see me at the following National Races: Oak Hill, Freestone, California Classic, Mammoth, Ponca City, The Dodge, Loretta Lynn’s AMA Championship, Mini O’s.
