Hi I am a 55 year New Zealander rookie in the Dakar. I am married with 4 children and live Riyadh Saudi Arabia where I work as a Flying Instructor.
I have been riding since I was a kid on a hill country farm, more recently in the deserts surrounding Riyadh. My first Rally in 2011 ended on day 2 when I broke my back. Recovered, I rode in Rally Du Marco this October, with the help of Bas Dakar, to qualify for Dakar. I am looking forward to spending more time with Bart and his team this January as I start and hopefully make it to the finishers podium in Dakar 2020.
