I am Pleased to announce that I will be competing in the upcoming ‘’Cross Vegas’’ race held in Las Vegas, America on Wednesday the 10th of September. I am beyond excited to be lining up in the same race as World #1 Lars Van der Haar and #2 Sven Nys as well as the American National Champion Jeremy Powers. I have been training hard over the past 4 months in preparation for this event and hopefully can have a race to remember for the years to come. With a 25 000 strong crowd expected and the race being held at 10pm at night I honestly don’t know what to expect. I am not the only Australian rider going this year with two of my Focus Bikes team mates going as well and also NSW State Champ Garry Milburn. There has been a strong local scene in Newcastle now with a lot of publicity and sponsors jumping on board what is the newest most exciting sport to hit our shores. The race will only last 60 minutes consisting of a predetermined course of 3.3km with obstacles placed around the course making riders either get off or have to navigate their way over them without falling off in front of the screaming fans. As the days count down to the race the excitement is building and I cannot wait to get on the start line and show what I can do!!
