Q2: Favourite Racing Bike?

“Stephen ‘Cargo’ Carr.”

Q6: Best roads moment thus far?

“My on track battle with Cargo (Stephen Carr) at last years Cookstown 100.”

Q8: Who’s your road racing hero?

Q9: Supersport or Superbike?

“Hmm, I’d say Supersport! Possibly the best racing class that there is.”

Q10: Pole position or fastest lap?

“Fastest Lap! every time.”
