"Ever since I was really young, I had ambitions to try and race Internationally. My uncles and father had raced either in Europe or America and more lately a few of my friends, including Brad Binder and Sheridan Morais, which has given me even more motivation. When Danny offered me the deal, it just seemed like the perfect opportunity to try and realize my ambition. With the advent of MotoAmerica, I am hoping a move to the States will pay off. I realize it is going to be tough learning new circuits in a new environment against some of the best riders in the world, but I am really excited about the challenge.
