Just before the lockdown rule was imposed I had a weekend up Doncaster on the bike to get ready for the AMCA. Championship. Saturday I went too Doncaster park, the bike and my fitness was working well until the Sunday at Fat cats when the bike stopped play and I split my piston. After 8 weeks of ordering the part from Italy it finally arrived. Sunday 15th March I attended a photo shoot ready for the season to start with the support of MDMX. That’s was the last until Saturday 16th May when 4 of us attended a private photo shoot to promote the new Mx race gear 3C design at GP motopark. So now it’s just a waiting game to see when the season will start.
6th February 2020
2020 I will be on board a 250f Husqvarna competing in MX2 AMCA British Championship. With help and support from MD-MX Apico racing, the off season has been going well so far and I’m getting better and fitter each and every week, fingers crossed for 2020.

2019 season didn't really go to plan, with accident after accident due to other extreme sports. But I've learnt alot and have come to realised how much effect, time and commitment you need to become the best you can. Only completed 3 rounds of the AMCA Championship due to accidents and bike failures, but those rounds have been an eye opener and it has also made me realise what I need too do to be able to compete in the MX2 class next year. I've ran a 10k and I will be walking mountains to help my journey for 2020. Sponsorship is vital and help off family and friends is too. Can not thank TDF, Marsh MX, Moto33, Ade Phelpshead and my Uncle George for all the support they have given me even though I've been out most of the season. Just hope 2020 will be a different story and things will be better. The winter series is going to be hard but hopefully with all my family behind me, the support off everyone I will get to were I belong

Really bad start to my season, I was feeling confident on the huquarva 250 supplied by Marsh MX and massive thanks to Tommo's Dream Foundation, my fitness was coming along and bike fitness was getting their, to have too cancelled the Bridgestone masters entry because of fractured wrist. Gutted isnt the right word. I'm still training fitness wise but with a cast on my left arm see me out for a few weeks. Hopefully il be able to attend the qualifiers for the first AMCA round.

After the disappointment last year, with injuries and all, I'd like to thank TDF for helping me sort out a new bike, so it's back on the Husqvarna suplied by Marsh MX. Training is going really well, and I'm 110% committed to having bike time and also intense training at the gym. For 2019 I will be competing in The Bridgestone Masters and also AMCA British Championships. Also can not wait to see what TDF have lined up for us as a team.

I decided to book into Brookthrope on Sunday with the corsham BSMA club. Race 1 I had a terrible start but pushed my way through the field to finish the race in 4th. 2nd race I felt so much better the bike pulled up the start and I grabbed the holeshot. I felt comfortable and the lack of race fitness again seen me finish the race in 3rd. Negatives and positives coming from the weekend. I know what I need to work on. Race 3 was canceled due to an incident so another 3rd overall.
Round 4 of the Apico nationals at pontrilas. Saturday the track was dusty, slick and very one lined, race one I struggled to get out the gate, pushed my way through but by not quick enough to get into the top 5 finishing 6th in mx2 . Second race was the same, but I felt a little bit more comfortable on the bike finishing 5th. Race 3 I had a better start and finished in 3rd having been pushed all race and having my fastest lap on the last lap, so fitness is definitely improved. Race 4 was on the Sunday and it was a mudder, having a decent start and holding 2nd in the mx2 by the end. Good weekend and finishing 3rd overall was a big boost to my confidence, roll on Culham in Sept .
18th August 2018
6 weeks after surgery because of an accident @wroxton with the BSMA National that I was currently in 2nd place. I felt ready to jump back only bike to race at Walterstone's team event with the BSMA, the track was slick, fast and dusty, the bike ride excellent but my race fitness wasn't their, so something to work on going 4th, 3rd, 4th for 3rd overall on the day.
A small group of us walked Pen-y-fan Saturday 18th, it was cold wet and windy on top and I'm very grateful for all the donations, and for the S up port from my sister who is 6years of age too my uncle George who's 76 years old who both enjoyed the experience .
Monday 2nd July 2018
This weeks racing didn’t go to plan, only lasted 5 corners and then went to hospital due to a crash, I had to have surgery on the wound because of the area it was in and now I’m on the road to recovery and to come back better and stronger.
Good weekend at the Apico BSMA Nationals at brookthorpe, Qualified - 9th Race 1- Good jump out the gate, was running 5th majority of the race but slipped off half way through and finished 7th. Race 2- Another good start and stayed in 5th the whole race. Race 3- Bad start because my gate didn’t drop , was dead last and worked back up to 9th. Race 4- track was really rough in the last one and suffered from arm pump, but eventually finished 8th. Overall 5th in the mx2 class.
