I’ve been riding bikes as long as I can remember…
At 4 I started riding a Honda 50 dirt bike, by 7 I was racing Supermoto on a Kawasaki 65 and by age 9 I was racing GP on a 2004 Honda RS125R. My entire family rides motorcycles, it’s a passion which runs deep in our veins.
I moved to the UK with my Mom at 13 so that I could begin my international racing career in the British Superbike Championship while my Dad stayed in California to keep our family electrical business going. I raced for 2 years in the BSB and then moved to a Honda CBR600RR production machine to learn the ropes and progress on a larger machine. Race Experience Junior and Motul invited me to be the first American to contest the French Superbike Championship in the stock 600 class. With the guidance of Sebastien Gimbert and my team, I achieved my first international win and track record at the Circuit de Ledenon. My next step was the FIM CEV Moto2 European Championship with my new team, AGR, in Spain.
In 2016 I had a strong season as a rookie in the Championship, finishing the year in 11th, with points earned in every race except one ( I experienced a mechanical failure at Albacete while in 7th place). This year I am excited to be back with AGR; my mechanics, Jubal and Roger; my data technician Nico, and my International Rider’s Agent Anscari Nadal. I’m riding a 2015 Kalex Moto2 this year and I’m enjoying the changes to the chassis. I believe in our program, the bike, and my team; my goal is to achieve a top 5 result this year!
When I’m not racing, I’m an International Correspondent and Journalist for the Bonnier Motorcycle Corporation. I cover the European and American racing scene as well as discuss what it’s like to be a teenager living abroad. I also work for my family’s electrical business, Rock and Sons, Inc., as an Apprentice Electrician as I believe it’s important to have a well-rounded background so that I am prepared for life during and after racing. I graduated from high school at the age of 16, and by my 17th birthday, I became a proud business owner of my own media company, Full Throttle Media.
I know how important it is to gain experience on the European tracks which is why I have a 3-year plan to grow to the next phase of my career in the World Championship with AGR. I am confident that with hard work, the dedication of my supporters, sponsors, and family that I will make it to the GP racing level; step by step making progress every day.
