Born to Ride
I began riding motorcycles age 5, aboard a PW50 when my elder brother and I raced mini motocross. The cost of moving up into the junior rankings competitively as we got older was too much for my family, so I waited until I turned 13 to give road racing a shot.
I started the budget form of road racing ‘buckets’ at the local go-kart track. After many very promising results, including winning the ‘Most Promising Newcomer Award’, we decided to purchase a Suzuki RG150 and contest the highly competitive 150 street stock class nationwide.
I had a ball racing in the National Championship races in the South Island, where the streetstock class exploited grids of over 50 riders. After numerous wins and breaking a lap record, we decided that traveling to Australia to race would provide me with some stronger competition to gain more experience and realise my potential. I finished 5th in the 2007 Australian Motorcycle Road Race Development Association (MRRDA) series.
After three seasons on a 125gp bike, finishing twice runner-up in the New Zealand Championships and taking lap records and both the NZ Grand Prix and Tourist trophy titles, I moved up to 600cc machinery.
In 2012 I spent 6 months living in Italy racing the cbr600rr cup (finishing 12th in the under 21 age category) and the Italian Women’s Championship (where I finished 2nd). In 2013 I repeated another year in Italy, twice finishing on the podium racing against some extremely fast, experienced men.
I then raced inside the World Superbike paddock for three years; two in the European Junior Cup and one in World Supersport 300. Within the Junior Cup, I won the FIM European Women’s Cup twice and finished every race inside the overall points.
Nowadays, I prefer to race closer to home and build strong relationships with my homegrown sponsors and supporters, while still racing competitively in New Zealand and Australia.
I am very thankful to those people who have given me these opportunities and who continue to support me in every way possible, I couldn’t do it without them and I believe this support will help me keep achieving my goals!
