Rider Bradley Cox [Q&A]

South African native Bradley Cox is a pro motocross racer currently competing in Europe. He has his dad to thank for winning him a bike and getting him started in riding. Check out our Q&A with him below.

How did you get started in riding?

In 2002, my dad (Alfie Cox) won me a KTM 50 when he won a stage at Dakar. After that, it took me about a year before I got on the bike and the rest is history.

What do you do when you aren't riding? What are your hobbies?

I like mountain biking, BMX, and water skiing.

What do you do in the off-season?

I relax. I head back home to South Africa. I go to the lakes there to waterski and just hang out with my friends.

Do you have any pre-race rituals?

I listen to music. I'm always playing with my hands, making them lose, and I pray. Where's your favorite place to ride? Your favorite track?

I like to ride in Lommel, Belgium, and in Teza, South Africa.  

What was your best moment as a pro rider?

My best moment was my first race ever in Europe and being on the podium. What are your riding goals?

I want to win a world championship title.

What is your advice for those just starting out?

Always have fun. Riding a bike is fun and don't rush into doing anything that's not fun.
