Rider bio

While not directly following his father's career path he certainly has racing in his veins. "My dad took part in Speedway races and opened a motorcycle shop later, so I come from a Motorsport family."

"When I was 6 years old I started riding a child quad bike in our garden. One year later there was a child motorcycle in my dad's motorcycle shop. He said when I can push the bike I will be allowed to ride it. So I tried but unfortunately I knocked over the bike. Even though I knocked it over I was allowed to ride the bike. So I rode in the fields often. After some time I took part in my first race."


2010 Supermoto racing

"My dad still helps me in my career. I came to racing because of him and he supports me now."


ADAC Minibike Cup 2012

From supermoto championships he has progressed to road racing but only in 2015 on a thoroughbred road racer. "In 2015 I learned how to ride a real racing bike and to work with a professional environment."

"My best race was the IDM Moto3 race in Schleiz 2015. I had a nice battle against some competitors and I won the battle in front of a large crowd of spectators. It was my first victory in the IDM Moto3 Standard class."

"In 2016 I want to improve my racing skills and learn from the other riders in the Rookies Cup."

It will be interesting to see which of the GP circuits he likes most. "My favourite tracks are stop and go tracks. I like tight corners with hard breaking zones most."

At school he enjoys sports and business administration. In his free time he likes to meet friends and ride his mountain bike. Of course his main goal is to follow heroes Valentino Rossi and Jorge Lorenzo.

"It is my goal to be a professional road racing and earn my money with racing." But it is not all about the cash. "The best in racing is to have fun on the bike and to win races. But I also like it to improve the bike with the team and making a good result afterwards."
