Class: Expert

Biography: I was exposed to motorcycle world at very early age. I’ve had amazing friends who taught me everything they knew about that sport. From riding bikes to splitting engine blocks and fixing things yourself.  All that good stuff happened back in Europe. After graduation from technical university I’ve moved to the U.S. where I’ve picked up my passion once again and start working for California Superbike School in 2008. Since then, I was always involved in motorcycle track events – each month contributing as a control rider or corner worker for various organization like Ti2TT or SoCalTrackDays.

 

For he last 6 years I was unable to participate in any major event due to possible orthopedic complications caused by accident. In 2012 I was finally clear to go under rod removal surgery from my left femur and after 8 months rehabilitation I’ve entered my first Pikes Peak International Hill Climb.
