“I would like to go to the USA when I am older and ride in the Arena Cross championship.”
Freddie also develops his skills as a result of playing on a Moto-Cross video game.
“It makes me think about what I am going to do on my motorbike in real life, when I play the game,” said Freddie who is looking for sponsorship.
“I will do certain things which I can then try out on the track.”
