Get To Know Max

Max started riding at 3 years old on a Peewee 50 in a field in England. Little did anyone know it would take Max to where he is now. He started racing at age 6 in grass track, which is popular in England. Grass track is like flat track, just on grass. This adventure led to Max winning 3 championships by the age of 10 years old. At the age of 11 Max and his family moved to Louisiana and started flat track racing that year. When he turned 12, Max became eligible for road racing.

In road racing, Max won his first championship at the age of 13 in the 250 GP class in USGPRU. His second championship came at age 15. When Max turned 16 years old he started racing Supersport 600 in AMA, which was his first year racing at that level. Max finished that season 8th place overall. The following year Max met Luke Connor through Tim Ivanoff and they started Thrashed Bike Racing. Max began in the Super Stock 1000 class on an EBR machine, then switched to Yamaha. The rest, as we say, is history. In 2022, Max was awarded the "Sportsman of the Year" from MotoAmerica. In 2023 Max will also ride an Indian Challenger with Mad Monkey Motorsports.

Max has been featured regularly in the media with stories and interviews. Max and members of the team are regular guests on many racing podcasts.
