GRIPPIN' & RIPPIN'!
From the age of just three, excitement machine ‘Westy’ has lived, breathed and raced motocross.
Living as a tight knit family living 1.5 hours from Rockhampton in Central QLD, Westy’s father and team manager Sean has been set with the challenge of not only the development of a motocross rider, but also ensuring his son has the personal attributes that all parents like to see in professional athletes.
Following in the footsteps of some of his current heroes, Westy has shared success not only on the Australian Junior Motocross circuit, but also internationally.
Developing as a formidable rider on the Australian scene, Westy’s achievements list is decorated with junior championships, national titles and also Australian representation, with him being the youngest rider ever selected.
His Australian success has lead to international interest with Westy featuring in events that riders such as Aussie Superstar Chad Reed, Jeremy McGrath, Ryan Villopoto, James Stewart and arguably the greatest of all time, Ricky Carmichael, all kick-started their careers.
With successive runner up achievements in the 2016 and 2017 National Titles, the springboard has been set for Westy to race against the World’s best riders once again in the USA.
