Love it, Live it, Ride it...

Riding has been a passion of mine since the moment I laid my hands down on handlebars, weekdays, weekends, holidays all I wanted to do is go ride my motorbike. It all started off when I was four years old and the passion for riding just grew day by day more and more. I had lots of ups and downs through out my career but never lost focus, never gave up trying, worked hard and put endless hours in my training and riding, and most important just never stopped having fun and enjoyed every moment I'm blessed with to ride my bike. My big break came when I moved over to Rudamans Bike & Marine in September 2014 where a perk was to ride and race a YamahaYZ250 two-stroke at selected events.
This privilege together with financial support from Ambassador Foods has been the highlight of my riding career and with this opportunity and support my riding has improved to another level.

Within the year of riding for the team I managed to achieve the following results:
  • 15th finish in Roof of Africa Gold class 2014
  • 5th Open Class at EWXC round 1
  • 6th Open Class at LEC Wild Side Enduro
  • 6th Overall at Powasol Mountain Massacre Enduro
  • 2nd Open Class at LEC Imperial Casterbridge Enduro
  • 3rd Overall at Powasal Uzumbe Extreme Enduro
  • 1st Open Class at LEC Imperial Toyota Hazyview Enduro
  • 2nd Open Class at LEC McGee Lydenburg Enduro
  • 1st Open Class at LEC Rudamans Yamaha KMIA Enduro
With these great results and the momentum I have built up this last season I am aiming for a Top Ten finish at 2015 Roof of Africa.

With your continued support for the 2016 Racing Season, we will participate at all the LEC, EWXC and Powasol events. It is going to be a big year and lots of fun onboard the Rudamans team and looking forward to deliver some good results and keeping the team and all our sponsors happy.
