Bio


What have you been doing since the 2019 finals in September? Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to go the final stop in HB due a shoulder injury last year. Luckily the shoulder is fine now and I’m feeling better than ever on my bike. Rode a couple of cool events the past months like RedBull Uncontained, Backyard Jam and Simple Session.

We’re heading back to Waiblingen, Germany in July. What was something you remember from that event in 2019? That’s awesome! Waiblingen was such a cool stop last year. In my opinion the vibe was the best at this one. Plus, it isn’t a long travel for me to get there haha.

We head to Salt Lake City in September, home of Mike Aitken, Fuzzy Hall and Matt Beringer. What do you think the vibe will be like having these guys on deck during the event? Always stoked to head to a new place! Makes it even cooler that those three legends are from that place. Mike Aitken has always been my favorite rider since the beginning so it would be awesome to ride a session with him. Looking forward to meeting those legends.

For the first time Sydney, Australia is our host for the Vans BMX Pro Cup finals in October. Who are you backing for the series win this year? Australia was such a fun one last year! Stoked to go back. Always a hard one to guess who’s going to win since a lot of guys kill it. My favorites are Sergio Layos and Jason Watts. These two rode so well at every stop last year.
