WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?

At the BMX NSW State Titles held in October 2019 I achieved 5th place in the Final making me a State Ranked rider for 15 boys for 2020. I hold the title for 5th in NSW. I often compete away at local BMX events throughout the year in NSW and QLD and always make finals.

WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?

 I am aware that the cost associated with my training, bike enhancement/repairs, protective clothing and travel cost are expensive for my parents who support me. I would like to be able to contribute this grant money so I am able to attend more events in 2020.

HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?

This grant will benefit me by helping my parents with the cost of some new BMX pants and shoes that I have outgrown. If there is any left over this will go towards my first BMX event in 2020.

WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?

I hope to get to the Australian National BMX Championship in Launceston Tasmania in March 2020 to compete with other riders from around Australia. I dream of making finals and standing up on the podium as one of Australia’s top BMX Riders. I hope that I can continue riding BMX for long time.

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

My dad has only just given up riding BMX this year after a nasty crash at our local club. He inspires me to keep fit, be supportive of my club and to have fun doing it. I also inspire to Sam Willoughby who was one of Australia’s top BMX rider.
