I live in Pinon Hills, CA, it is a small town at the base of mountains in the high desert. I grew up riding in my yard and the surrounding area with my friends and going on camping trips to the desert. One year in middle school a few friends of mine and I all convinced our dads to take us to one of the local tracks for the summer series they were having. That began the racing craze. After a few years of racing motocross we decided to try some District 37 desert races and I was hooked. For a few years we mixed it up doing both motocross and desert throughout the year until in 2010 when we first decided to chase the National Hare and Hound series. Since then the National Hare and Hound Series has been my major focus on racing.

In 2011 and 2012 I won the District 37 250 class championship along with being the Overall Champion in 2012. I won the 250 A class championship in 2014 for the National Hare and Hound series and finished seventh overall amongst the pros. In 2016 I finished 3rd overall in the pro class and won the District 37 open class championship. I have also podiumed a few Western Hare Scramble races throughout the years as well. 


I work part time and race for Team SRT Husqvarna now and have been having an awesome year so far, I am currently fourth overall in the Hare and Hound series and getting better every race.This year I put a big effort into making the team for ISDE. I had a brand switch for this year going from Yamaha to Husqvarna and didn’t get bikes until 3 weeks before the first qualifying round. With little time on the bike and virtually no testing I just had to go for it and hope for the best. A little bike issue hampered my results at the first round but I turned it around for the  following rounds and ended up qualifying fourth. 

I’ve always followed ISDE and dreamt of racing it for a long time. I am my own mechanic and do basically everything myself so the whole idea of working on your bike and racing is very appealing to me. If there’s an issue I have a good idea of how to find the culprit and fix it. For my first ISDE I want to just stay smart and smooth and bring home a gold medal at the end of the race. I do really well in long races and usually build steam and find my flow as it goes on so I’m hoping I can bring that to the race and get better and stronger while the days go on. 

I’m excited to be going and can’t wait to start the race that’s on the biggest stage in the world.

I was able to step in at the last minute and race in Chile due to the unfortunate accident that Colton Wilkes endured just two weeks before leaving for Chile.


My family was already there from Hall's Cycles, so I rented a Husqvarna FE 250 and just went with it!

I have always been interested in the ISDE since my dad raced in 2005 in Slovakia.  

It has been a dream of mine to be able to race, and it fell into my lap!  


This ISDE was one of the dustiest conditions that I've ever raced in, but I had a blast!  I finished on a silver medal which I'm proud of for the little amount of time I had to prepare to race.  

I finished 27/84 in the C1 class.
