I have been riding off road motorcycles since the age of four, including motocross and endurance races. When I turned 18 I was working at TT motorcycles in Harare. They told me that they were going to bring in a new type of bike called a Megelli 250r, and they said that they wanted to start road racing again in Zimbabwe. I had always liked riding around the karting track on scooters, which made me wonder if I would be any good at road racing. They had brought in 2 bikes to test. I tried them out and really enjoyed it so I bought one.
After about seven weeks the bikes arrived. I took mine home in the crate and assembled it. I had been given some race kit from friends in South Africa, and another friend gave me some road racing boots. My Grandad went to SA and got me some gloves, so now I was all kitted out for racing. We went to Donnybrook practicing about twice a month, and my lap times started to get faster and faster.
