How long have you been doing motocross?
Since I was about two I have always been fascinated by bikes, so when I turned five my parents bought me an old Honda 50ccand I have been riding and racing since. That makes 10 years now. Motocross is an extremely hard and exciting sport. I love the adrenaline rush I get from it. Many of my friends and family members rode and some still ride today.
Where do you usually train?
I ride at the Dubai Motocross Club. When I’m not riding or during the summer, Ikeep myself fit in the gym. I have a PT, Taylor Hamilton, and I train with him twice a week. On some other days I go with my dad to Optimal Fitness. This summer, I will have the opportunity to train in Germany for two weeks, which I am really excited about. Read more
