FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
As I got a little older, it felt normal to be growing up in a ‘man’s world’. At that time, all my friends were boys and I guess I just felt like one of them. I seemed to fit in well when we would go riding or if we were just hanging out. When I started competing and beating them it was a lot of fun in the beginning, but as I got older, it did start to feel a little strange as what I was achieving hadn’t really been done before.
For anyone entering any kind of motorcycle sport, I think trial is the perfect place to start. I believe that it teaches you really important skills and helps to develop your ability, even if you’re already competing in another sport. Trial teaches you a lot of things like balance, control, and patience. It’s mentally challenging and you need to be very precise and must remain focused at all times to succeed. Even for everyday life, riding trial helps. For youngsters that will one day learn how to drive a car, they’ll already be one step ahead as they’ll know how to use the clutch and gears properly.
