Geez where did 2011 go? One of my highlights was getting ride in the Euro Xgames, bummed I crashed though. I was stoked to get on the podium at the Canadian Open and the NZ Open gave me a broken wrist. The biggest highlight for me in 2011 was definitely Stylewars at Falls Creek, I got to spend some time with the Red Bull fam and took home 3rd place, it was an awesome weekend and I'm looking forward to next years event.
This year I'm stoked to be heading home for Christmas woop! After a big family Christmas day, I'll be heading to the beach every chance I get. Here is my wish list for Christmas, I can only guess I've not been good enough so far, maybe this year!
I wish for a white Lamborghini with a Victoria Secret model sitting in the passenger seat, wearing her 2012 swimsuit. A Lamborghini is my dream car but to have a Victoria Secret model beside me, well that would put the cherry on top.
My own Compound:
I wish for my own foam pit with two FMX ramps and a few BMX jumps too. I have always wanted to backflip my motorbike, so having a foam pit would help me for fill my dream. I would have the ultimate set up for all action sports and also have a Flo Rider, so i could practise my surfing when I am away from the beach.
A Private Jet:
I wish for a private jet, nothing too big. Just something to make life a little easier while I'm traveling really, an A380 would do. It would give me plenty of room to travel around with friends and the family, I'd have a night club on the top deck. and of course I would need 24/7 wings girls service on my plane.
A luxury boat:
I wish for a luxury boat that I could travel around australia with and a chopper on top to go sight seeing. I do wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy and safe New Year.
With Christmas fast approaching I thought I’d give you a bit an insight into how it’s all rolling out for me this year. With my NYE jump of 400ft plus this year, a lot my focus will be directed towards that, but with my little family of Amy, Kruz and myself, I’m really looking forward to getting into the Christmas spirit. We’re just about to put the tree up and do some decorating around the house. My last ride before NYE will be this week, so the rest of the time, I’ll be chilling and relaxing as much as I can. Kruz loves Christmas time and that makes it so fun for the rest of us. I’m trying to get my dad and his missus over this year too, which would be pretty special, but we’ll see how that goes.
Anyway, below I’ve put together my ultimate Christmas list, so if anyone has an in with Santa, please put in a good word for. I know I’m on the “nice” list this year, so the big man can look after me!
1.To be the owner of Red Bull!
Dietrich Mateschitz is the man. The money, the race teams, the events. Man, it’d be cool!
2. A G4 Jetstream private jet:
I’ve been flying public for a long time and for the sort of miles I do, it’s about time to upgrade to my own jet. No having to rush to make a flight, just roll up whenever I want, fly in luxury and get to my destination in complete comfort.
3. Personal helicopter with landing gear:
If you’ve got the jet, you’ve gotta have the Heli to go with it. There’s none of this driving to the airport. I wanna jump in the chopper, fly over all the traffic and land right next to my jet. Plus, it’d come in handing for filming and all that other stuff. Practical, you know?
4. Rolls Royce Phantom:
The family has to roll around in luxury and when it comes to cars, there’s little better than the Phantom. This would be the family car, and the next car would be my toy.
Yep, this is straight up my little toy. Nothing like rolling to the shops to get milk and bread in one of these bad boys. Power, style and elegance. Sign me up!
Note: If number one came true, then two through five all come with it! (laughs) Dietrich is the man and being the man behind Red Bull means the rest of this stuff just rolls with it. So, Santa, Just bring me the one present please.
While I’m at it, I can’t leave out the rest of the family.
For Amy, I’d get the big man to bundle up all the money in China and drop it down our chimney. That way, Amy can spend it on whatever she wants! It’s the ultimate gift. While you’re there Santa, you can get all the toys in China for Kruz. We all know many toys that place pumps out, can you imagine seeing his little face when he saw that pile under the tree! So cool.
Anyways people, I hope everyone has an awesome Chrissy. Stay safe, have fun and live it up. I’ll check in again after my news year’s jump.
I do love this time of year. The race season is over, there’s nothing looming on the near horizon, nothing that I desperately need to train for, and no real pressure. I get to hang out at home with my family and friends and spend a few weeks living like a normal person. It’s a rarity, and something I try and make the most of. Looking back on this year, it was a hell of a learning curve for me. I went from being young and living in Bourke, to a little older and living on my own in Southern California. I had to reset my life and learn a lot of life’s lessons for the first time, all while trying to race the fastest dirt bike riders on the planet. It’s humbling and something I’m so glad to say I’ve done. Even know I’ll be back in Australia next year, I’ll definitely jump at the opportunity to go back to the USA and chase my dreams again.
I can’t wait to spend Christmas with my family this year, as last year I was running it all alone in the USA. There will no doubt be plenty of shenanigans, but I can’t get up to much trouble as I’m off to New Zealand on the 26th of December to go racing again! Yep, I know I said I was going to take a while off the bike, but the opportunity came up and I absolutely love racing over there. The tracks are awesome, there’s some really fast riders and the people are all really good to us.
Anyway, I hope everyone has an awesome Chrissy. Do it the Aussie way and pull out the BBQ and knock back a couple of beers in the sun. In the mean time, check out my ultimate Christmas Wish List below. There’s a few gems in there that I’d really, really, like.
I saw a few of these bad boys when I was in the States and fell in love. They sound awesome, look even better and go like a shower of shit. I’d love one of these parked under the tree on the 25th!
2. A Chopper:
With the kinda ground we’ve got to cover out here in Bourke, I’d love a little two-seater chopper. Nothing too big or crazy, just something I can jump in and buzz around the properties. Do a bit of mustering, find pigs and really cover some ground in a hurry.
3. A huge chunk of land:
This may seem strange with the huge amounts of space we have around here, but I’d like a slice of it for myself. Run a station, build some tracks, a huge damn to ride jet ski’s, you know the whole nine yards.
4. Unlimited supply of toys for Dad and I:
We love our toys. Be it quad bikes, paint ball guns, four-wheel-drives, dirt bikes, cars… whatever. If we can have just a constant stream of these sort of things rolling through the door we’ll be set.
5. Playboy playmate once a week, every week:
I’m not going to go into any sort of detail, but who wouldn’t want one hanging around the house?
