My family especially my Grandad and Nan, Mum and Dad, aswell as other friends such as Pete Day for training me, mechanicing now and again and being a riding friend, Nick Hammal my uncle, and just everyone who’s around me at practice and race days. And of course the sponsors I’ve had over the years.
