My life revolves around motorcycles and my passion for motorcycles reached the pinnacle in 2020 when I raced the Dakar Rally. However after crashing out and breaking my arm on day 5, it's now my mission to get to the finishing line and live my dream in completing the Dakar Rally.
There are some challenges that capure the imagination like no other.
Every year hundreds of people climb Everest, some choose to sail around the World or even chase the Tour De France but for me the Dakar Rally has been the ultimate challenge. It challenges your skill, knowledge and fitness and is the longest and most demanding offroad race on the planet. Its been a dream since childhood to race and become a finisher.
