I grew up in Bloubergrise, Cape Town and actively compete in Europe in the German ADAC and Dutch ONK Motocross Championships, focusing on the European UEM 125cc Championship. I compete on behalf of the Bodo Schmidt KTM Racing Team. The purpose of this document is to highlight my achievements to date with a view to representing the Monster Energy brand.
I started competing in January 2001 at the age of 4. I am currently 17 years old and compete internationally in Europe on an international Dutch license with the KNMV. I have a Dutch passport.
