What`s your day job?
Full time stunt rider for past four years.
What has been the highlight of your career so far?
To travel the world and see so many places and to have some big sponsors supporting me.
What would be your dream car/ motorcycle?
I would love a Lambo or Ferrari one day but I’m happy with my Mercedes Sprinter and all the bikes I have now.
Did you always want to be a racer or something else?
I have always loved motorbikes and would love to race one day, but I really enjoy the freedom of stunt riding and what I do.
Front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive, all-wheel drive or two wheels?
For me it’s two wheels all day long!
What motorsport event would you most like to compete in?
USA stunt competitions, European stunt competitions, but to be honest I just want to travel the world and put on live shows.
What is the most insane/scary/memorable drive/ride you’ve ever had?
Every day I push myself and bikes to the limits, but I’ve got to say that the Kawasaki H2 is an insane bike to ride.
How involved are you in testing and mechanical tweaking before events?
I do everything myself with help from my mechanic and friend Alan Jones, but I had to learn to do all maintenance and fixing myself.
Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Bigger and stronger, better doing shows at most major events across the world hopefully. I love my job!
What is your go to playlist or song before an event to get in the zone?
I like all music but a bit of Dubstep with female vocals always gets me hyper.
If you could try any other motorsport what one would you choose?
Probably car drifting, but I want to race also, a race season on Superbikes would be on my list, car drifting second.
What’s the fastest you’ve ever gone in a car or bike on track and when?
I go to the track on a regular basis so 6th gear on my ZX10 flat out about 170, but I have also been drag strip on my H2 which is 170 – 180mph.
What is your daily drive or ride?
I have a Mercedes Sprinter Motor Home, Mercedes 220 Convertible and a Kawasaki H2 for the roads, but I use the motor home mostly.
Who is your inspiration?
Everyone and anyone that pushes to the limits, I look up to everyone.
What is the one thing you could not live without?
My bikes and of course my friends and family as that’s what keeps my blood flowing.
What is your favourite takeaway?
Chicken and rice, I could eat it every day and roast beef.
Do you have a favourite movie?
All the superhero videos are great, Ironman, Deadpool, Avengers – love all those types and a good comedy.
Any bad habits?
I get told I snore when sleeping deeply and I fart a lot, doesn’t every man?
Tell us something about you that most people would not know?
I’m pretty open so I have no secrets but probably that me middle name is Francis. I have a birthmark on the back of my leg and I also have a massive tattoo on my back. I ride in cycling shorts.
Would you rather fight 100 duck-sized horses or 1 horse-sized duck?
Definitely a horse sized duck. One hundred duck sized horses would peck you to death.
