Profile:

Born in London 1983 and already a competitive sportsman from a very young age.
Max’s motorcycle career started at the age of 10, but by then he also already had a love for water as he became ‘British under 13 water-ski champion’.

Max is very keen on extreme sports, holding a helicopter pilot license and he regularly goes skydiving, paramotoring or wingsuit Base jumping. And his love for water still exsists as he is currently also on the British Wake-boarding team.

But now, back to the bikes… Max started roadracing before he started to go ‘off road’. He raced ‘stock 600’, ‘supersport’ and ‘superbike cup’. From 2012 onwards we finally find him on the ‘dirt’, competing at the Lucas Oil Regionals off road and in 2014 he combined the tarmaq with the dirt when he raced supermoto.

Last year his Dakar plans became stronger and stronger and this year he started gaining experience rapidly by riding 3 rallies in Morocco; the Tuareg Rally, the Libya rally and the Merzouga rally. Most important; he started all, he finished all. And with the finish of the Merzouga rally he got his ticket for Dakar! Max is not the only one in his family whit the ‘Dakar virus’. Max’s broter Harry already competed (and finished) twice in the car category in Dakar (last year with MINI).

Max’s mission and goal: “Dakar is the ultimate test of man and machine. For this year my Goal is to complete the Dakar. In subsequent years, my goal will be to finish as high as I possibly can.”
