Tell us about your first race.
My first race was when I was 3 years old at the old Starwest MX in Perris, CA. I fell several times per lap and dad got a really good workout, but I was hooked!
What other sports do you like?
Mountain biking, golf, and baseball.
Describe a typical day at the track for you.
Last year I started training regularly at Reynard Training Complex. Robbie has a great program and varies it each day. Some days are sprints, some days long motos, and great section practice most every day.
Favorite meal to have before you race?
Best moment on a motocross bike?

Best road trip story.
Last year our family loaded up in the box van to go to Cal Classic and a Road to Mammoth race at Milestone. After racing those two races, I got invited to go to Bakersfield and ride with Jett (Reynolds) and Ryder (DiFrancesco), so we stayed until the following weekend to do that. The next weekend was SX Futures in Las Vegas and mom and dad decided to do that, too. A two-week trip turned into over a month!
What’s your favorite track to ride?

Jett Lawrence because of his style and speed. He also has a funny and great personality.
