It’s been one heck of a trip. Never assumed I ‘d wind up where we stand today. 12 years down the track with 2 GNCC and also 6 OMA Champions. One excellent OMA period and also 17 successive victories, and also many holeshots. Some accomplishments that I’m very happy with. It’s a difficult call to make though and one I have actually duke it outed for a while currently, however, I know it’s time for us to going back to New Zealand. I will certainly miss being an expert racer as well as most likely to all the races.

We have fulfilled some excellent individuals and made lifelong buddies. We have actually had the chance to work with as well as gain from many of the sporting activities greats from here and all over the globe. We have seen a great deal and also experienced much more.
