  • Ride: Buell XB9 Firebolt
  • Style/Inspiration:

    I started riding dirt bikes when I was really young – so kind of just did my own thing and I loved to goof off! My mom coached me on how to ride on the street, and then when she became a motorcycle safety instructor she had my sister and I take the class. I didn’t really have an example for land speed racing besides my mom, but she rides a different kind of bike, so I asked lots of questions. From racing for the last few years on the salt, I’ve developed a style based on the kinds of bikes I ride. You have to “get small”. I would say I am an aggressive rider and that I listen closely to the bike and pay attention to the surface of the salt to decide how far I will push it.

  • Favorite Z1R Helmet/Apparel:

    The Venom Sabre Helmet. Team Klock Werks wears the Venom Sabre full face, color: Firecracker. I really like how light it is and that I can tuck behind the windshield of my Buell really well with it!
