Robie began racing when he was a teenager, but never took it too seriously. However, about 5 years ago, Robie's son suggested he have a go, and Robie was soon addicted to racing.
Robie has always felt that individual sports would suit him better and feels BMX is the best he has tried. He says he would like to be the best he can but set a good example along the way.
Robie feels that BMX has allowed him to meet many interesting people, not only in Australia, but around the world.
