He first rode in the TT in 2000 and From New Zealand, Nigelwon the Newcomers award for 17th in the Ultra-Ligthweight and took 12th place in the Lightweight 400 gaining two bronze replicas. He has lapped the course at 100.60mph and his ambition is a top ten finish in the Ultra-Lightweight Race.

I won the 400cc National roadracing Championships in NZ for the 96/97 season then raced for Honda NZ in the 600 and Open sports production championships in 98/99 respectively. I then went to Australia where I competed in various meetings to keep my hand in while I readied myself for the TT.

I hope to continue my learning curve and gain more circuit knowledge and IOM expertise on the way to scoring my first TT win!
