Statement about being on Supercross:
Having the opportunity to be a part of the Supercross Family in 2017 is the biggest highlight in my BMX career. I’ve ridden Supercross bikes all my riding life, so to be asked to be a part of this factory team was a dream come true. I love everything about this team & how much this team is one big happy family.
