  • Career History. How did you start riding? My dad brought me to the track in 1993 when I was 5 years old. I still remember how I cried for hours when I saw all the guys going fast and jumping those big jumps. I asked my dad to take me home and said that this is definitely something I don’t want to do, but after a few months I somehow ended up trying and here I am 20 years later…
