I am a 26 year old Female Elite BMX racer and 2012/2016 Olympian from Bunbury, Western Australia.

Currently residing in San Diego, California.

Growing up as a tom boy following my brothers foot steps I have been on bikes or anything with wheels since I learnt how to ride.

I started building dirt jumps and jetty jumping into the river from the age of 6.

I then tried BMX racing for the very first time at the age of 9 and won !

Since then I have not looked back winning my first State Championships at age 9 , my first National Championships at age 10 and my first World Title at age 12.

I joined the Australian National team at the age of 17.

In 2009 I stated competing on the World Cup series with my first podium coming in France in 2010.

In 2013 I signed my first professional contract to race in the USA.

I now compete on the international circuit which has me traveling to all corners of the globe in an effort to become the fastest female BMX racer on the planet.

BMX is a combination of speed, power, fitness, finesse and skill. It is the ultimate adrenaline rush and the Olympics new favourite sport.

What many people don't know about me is that I am a lover of fishing. I spend my Christmas holidays and time off BMX deep sea fishing with my Dad off the coast of WA in Australia.

I also have a crazy love for Coffee and hope to expand on this love once my BMX days are behind me.

My goals for the coming years are USA BMX National Number One , SX World Cup Winner , World Champion and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

I also want to give back to the sport I love and work with young kids coming up through the ranks.
