About The Rider – I have been riding dirt bikes since I was 4. I started out riding trails, and in 2004 participated in my first motocross race.
I attend Clay Chalkville High School in Trussville, Alabama and plan to go to college to become an Electrical Engineer.
Most weekends I attend MX races anywhere in the Southeast and during the week I help with maintenance and repair on my bikes and train as much as possible.
In 2010 my family and I decided to try out for Loretta Lynn’s. I finished 7th and 8th in the Supermini 12/15 and 13/16 class at Gravity Alley in the South Central Region. At the Bremen qualifier, I was on the way to a first place finish when I got hit and was injured. Due to this injury I was not able to ride for the rest of the summer. Since then I have moved up to a Yamaha YZ125.
During the winter months, I participated in several Arena Cross races where I finished consistently in the top 3 in the Lites C and Schoolboy classes. My parents recently purchased a 2011 Suzuki RMZ250. This proved to be a good move. I am able to achieve even better results on this bike.
Motocross is my passion. Besides school, I invest all my time and energy to become a better rider. It is also important to me to show good sportsmanship at every race, on and off the track and to promote “my” sport.
