How did you get into riding dirt bikes and when did you start riding?
I started riding when I was two and a half and started racing when I was four. My brother used to race so we would ride together all the time.
My favorite track has been Milestone because of the jumps and turns. I live close to Milestone and get to ride there often.
I was really excited and wanted to win. After my crash I got up and didn’t let off in the corners and kept moving up and passing people.
What upcoming races do you plan on attending this season?
I am going to finish racing the Fall Classic series and I am racing the Mini Major this coming weekend. After that, I want to race the amateur nationals and go to Lorreta Lynn’s in 2018.
I like Ronnie Mac, I got to see him and watch him ride at the Red Bull Straight Rhythm and it was awesome. I jumped like him over the finish line today.
I am going to not crash and if I do I will go fast to pass other racers. I hope I can keep winning races.
Besides riding dirt bikes I like to fish. I used to live in the bay area and would go fish with my family there. I catch the fish and my brother eats them.
I have my brother and my baby sister. My brother and I always do stuff together and are good friends. Sometimes we argue but I love them.
