Olympic Dreams:In 2012 I want to dominate women’s BMX in the world and accomplish one of my career goals—Gold in London.Riding Style:My riding style is a very relaxed and confident style of riding. I don’t ride to impress anyone. I just ride how it feels comfortable for me and how I have always ridden my bike. I love getting some hang time and feeling good on my bike. I train very hard and all my life have had to train alone and push myself. Off the bike, I try to be a friendly person as much as possible until its time get the job done. I respect those people who respect me and support me. I certainly don’t like to show myself off and get myself out there unless I am wanted to do so.

I’m currently riding a custom 2011 BMX Australia Intense Podium Pro XL+ frame. It feels so nice and the set up with all the components is awesome. Feeling good to bring home some medals on this beast in 2011.Future Goals:Originally I wanted to follow my Mum’s footsteps in becoming a beauty therapist and run my own salon like she does, specializing in make-up artistry. However, I really want to see where my BMX career takes me and possibly continue in a major coaching role or something along those lines in Australia BMX. I really enjoy helping the youth and encouraging them to take on a career like I have started.Current Team:Team Australia/High performance program/ Intense BMX teamCurrent Sponsors:BMXA, Alpha-H, Stingaz Surf n Skate, Intense BMX, THE, Sinz Elite, Australind Beauty works, BONT cycling shoes, SRH clothing, Stealth, Thompson, Alienation
