I'M CROS.

TWO WHEELS | ONE PASSION | ENDLESS FUN

28 JUN 2019 - Interview with Caity Hynes - Motorcycle Australia

Thinking back, tell us about one of your favourite memories growing up when it comes to motorcycling?

"One of my favourite memories was when we were on holidays in Italy, and I was 8. Filippo (my Italian big brother) organised a pit bike race at the local karting track between himself, my dad and I, which is even funnier because my dad cannot ride! It was so much fun…Filippo and I lapped my dad several times but we both ran off the track and had to give dad the win in the end. He never lets me live that down"

Tell us about where your love for motorcycle racing began and why?

 

"It’s strange as my family has no motorcycle background, but mum always says that when I was one, we went to the MotoGP at Phillip Island and I sat in my stroller for three days just watching the bikes go by. She says it was the best babysitting service ever!

Then at two I got a peewee for Christmas which I still have in my room. My sister Tayla has her eyes on it, much to my parents’ worry! I love that Peewee, I sat with it and slept with it and then eventually my parents let me learn to ride in empty carparks.

I think I just love all aspects about this sport it really just clicked with me from an early age"

What career do you hope to end up in?  For example, WSBK or MotoGP racer?

 

"Oh gee, I would love to do things like WSBK or MotoGP. Whatever I do, I just want to be able to keep riding motorbikes"

Cros has a unique background and is mature beyond his years.  Apart from his riding ability he excels academically and has a solid understanding of complex dynamics.  His focus and uncanny learning approach has led to his selection as the junior test rider (Rider Data Analytics) and ambassador for Junior Development at motoDNA.  Cros has shown tremendous growth in this development environment and built a great rapport with the coaches and other riders. His introduction to Motorbike racing has been impressive.  Earlier this year he competed for the first time in a national series, earning pole positions and five podiums.  He is the true definition of a rookie and has made everyone in the paddock sit up and take notice!"
