    THE RIDER

    When I was growing up I dreamed of road bikes and rode dirt bikes as much as I could. To me every ride was about going faster than my friends. I purchased my first road bike in 2007. I would watch Road Racing (MotoGP, WSBK and the TT’s) and would say “I need this”. The only issue was,  I rode fast on the street with my buddies. Unfortunately, as time would have it, I had two close friend die while riding. I didn’t want to give up motorcycle riding due to my losses, so I looked elsewhere for the thrill in a safe manner. 
    In 2011, I became a part of an online forum that hosted tracks day. I was one of the first timers that they were able to recruit. After getting on a real race track, I was hooked! I signed up for as many track days as I could afford.
    In 2013 I participated in my first race at JenningsGP. I did exceptionally well making up 10+ positions in 2 laps. With this new momentum, I did more club races throughout the year and at the end of the 2014 season I decided to make the jump to “real” racing. I took racing school and sent away for my competitive race license. 
    The 2015 season I raced in the Championship Cup Series as amateur and made very good results, finishing mostly top 10 with 2 wins. I won the Atlantic Rookies Cup championship and the Summit Point Raceway Rookies track Championship. 
    2016 is upon us and I’m looking to build on my good results and reach expert status.
