What's your dream bike?
Off road? I think I’ve probably got it! I’ve always liked KTM and the 300 EXC is something I’ve always wanted.
On road? Probably a Ducati Desmosedici. When I was younger, I always wanted one. Then when they brought out the limited production line I thought “I’m gonna get it, I’m gonna get it” but I didn’t and I probably never will
How was last season’s racing?
I did pretty well last year, I focused on the TBEC Championship, the idea was to come in the top 5. I managed to come in the top two so I came second overall and second in Elite which I was really really happy with. I did a few side races as well. Ended on Mud, Sweat and Gears and came third in Expert which I was quite happy with as well.
What did you learn from last season?
The main thing I learnt from it was to hold back a little. When I started the season I was very much “Go, go, go! Gotta take that line. Gotta take that gap!” About half way through the season I started to back off and that’s when I really started to learn and become properly competitive in the club.
Then to ride a few of the South East Enduro combines, I really want to ride a few of them cos it’s based on the same sort of format as the BEC which is timecard. I’m going to hop around and do a few TBEC’s hopefully with a top 3 finish maybe even try for 1st this year. I got a couple of firsts last year but another few this year would be nice and then race a few Enduroland series as well as random clubs such as Linconshire Enduro Club and Portsmouth Motorcycle Club.
What is your ultimate goal?
I want to try and win Clubman in the British Enduro Championship in E3 class, that’s something I’d really like to do and then hopefully get up into expert. If I’m sort of mid to top level expert then that's really something I’d like to achieve. I’d love to try Sea to Sky. I don’t know if I’d be any good at Erzberg,..? I’d love to, but the extreme side for me is something I would need to work on. I’m more Enduro GP pace.
What do you do to keep bike fit?
That's kind of where I excel. I used to be a personal trainer so I get a lot of it from that. I train about 4 to 5 times a week off the bike depending on if I’ve raced at the weekend or not. I get sports massage therapy as well from someone I know, they help me out with that and then I ride the bike ideally once during the week and then I either race or practice seriously at the weekend as well. So there’s quite a lot that goes into it. I also eat really clean, don’t drink and don’t smoke either.
Two stroke or four?
KTM or Yamaha?
Winter or summer rider?
I love winter riding but I’m much quicker in the summer
How far can you wheelie?
I’m pretty bad at wheelies to be fair but probably around 20 meters or something like that, Not too far
The team at Torque Racing have been amazing. They’ve worked on my engine, worked on my forks, ordering in boots for me etc. They’re really really helping me out. With what I’m aiming to do this year, I physically couldn’t do without them. It would be impossible!
