I am 34 years old and run a small family owned and operated chemical company. I was introduced to motorbikes at the age of 5 and have been on them ever since. In 1998, I met a close friend from Westlock, AB who was a National Pro Sno-Cross and Motocross racer. I started racing and have been doing it ever since, until 2005 when I fractured two vertebrae in my back, after a year and a half of physio, and rehab, I am back riding again.
The past few years I have been looking to get more involved in helping grow the sport of Motocross up here in Alberta. In 2015 I became the Vice President of the Alberta Oldtimers Motocross Association and continued in that position for 4 years. From there I had a few parents at the track asking me to put on some riding clinics and private lessons for their kids who were wanting to get into the sport of Motocross. From there I started the Seven1 Racing Motocross Clinic. I began running a few for the local riders up here and last year in 2019 I was able to bring up riding coach Ryan Hughes to put on a school for the racers up here. This year was suppose to be AJ Catanzaro however due to the COVID restrictions had to cancel. I then put on 10 successful camps for the riders up here, teaching approximately 120 different students this summer. Many of which decided to try out racing with the ADRA series. In 2020 I was nominated and asked to join the board of Directors for the Alberta Dirt Riders Association and we were able to work with government authorities and put together an 8 round race series.
My main goals now with racing are getting my kids involved as well as maintaining a high caliber of racing for myself. I also will be continuing to put on ride schools for riders up here in hopes that we can continue to build our sport back up and maintain this momentum we are gaining.
Just looking to have fun and be competitive. I started the Seven1 Racing team in 2013, and after 7 years have established a great team with an awesome group of riders and sponsors. At Seven1 Racing our main goal is to be competitive while maintaining a positive and fun atmosphere in the pits as well as on the track to help grow the sport. In 2019 we ran our first ever Ride School featuring Ryan Hughes as the instructor, it went off with great success and we were able to put on 10 sessions for over 120 riders up here in 2020.
