As a kid getting up early in the morning to head of to the motocross with dad. In particular going to watch the Manjimup 15,000 each year.
Competing in the Aussie titles with my wife Claire in the chair.
|Most memorable (funny or painful) Motocross accident||Had a pretty decent high side whilst blasting across a mud flat on my Trail bike. Got plenty of odd looks riding it home as my bike was bent and the right side of my shirt and pants was rapidly turning red from a slight case of extreme blood loss. As always the first sound I heard after the fall is the sound of my dad wetting himself laughing!|
