Gran Prix Motorcycle Racing Chassis Mechanic

No Half Measures

A winning team is built on much more than the best riders and the best bikes; team chemistry is critical. The teams I have worked with value my positive outlook and calm demeanor. I also know how important it is to have fun.  My work ethic, attention to detail and passion for motorcycles make me an extremely valuable asset to any team.
