I was born the son of a motorcycle racer so for me motorcycles are a natural part of my life since day one.
I got my first mini bike when I was nine (kawasaki kt30) first motorcycle at eleven (Rickman 125).
I started racing flat track at age 13 and continued with a fair amount of success thru 16, then all the local tracks closed
and my racing career was over.
I was 24 when I discovered Roadracing and fell in love with the sport, with the exception of 4 years (92 to 95) off to build a house and settle down a little I have roadraced a full season ever since with great success.
I have raced everything from vintage Triumph’s and BMW’s to aprilia, Yamaha, Suzuki and of corse DUCATI
Some of my highlights are:
1986 AHRMA National Champion
2004 WERA Senior Superbike National Champion
2007, 2008, 2009 AMA PRO Moto-GT2 National Champion (endurance racing as Touring Sport Ducshop Ducati)
During the last 24 years along with racing I also managed a very successful European Motorcycle Dealership.
I have built my own racebikes complete throughout the years (the only exception being the last three endurance seasons when Mark and Lorin at Ducshop built my engines) however I still assembled and maintained the championship
Designing, building, fabricating and racing motorcycles is who I am and what I do.
