Building RAD back in 1996, Max pioneered Australia’s original Freestyle Motocross Shows also being a professional rider, coach and race team rider over a 15 year duration.
An official naming right sponsorship with the Ford Motor Company saw Max fulfil public speaking roles and live stunt show as an official ambassador over a 6 year duration.
Additional corporate ambassadorial roles have been achieved with Komatsu, Kennards Hire, Melbourne Docklands Authority, Motul Oil, Maxxis Tyres and Arnette Eyewear.
Max has been granted a series of international awards and recognition for effectiveness of work carried out within the fields of behaviour change reprogramming and preventative education.
Pictured here, is Max standing with Mayor Cherie Dalley of Logan for the opening of a RAD Skatepark Empowerment Day Oct 18.
The cornerstone block of strength for Max personally, Tracy works alongside her man, at both the Mojo Branding Agency and RAD, co-ordinating and overseeing all management meetings, strategy and communication, whilst also being at each event, ensuring that all RAD volunteers, riders, families and friends are 110% happy and well fed.
The ongoing continual funding of RAD is enabled through Tracy’s generosity, hard work and belief in what RAD achieves as a drug free brand icon within the community, helping so many whether it be street kids that are hungry or in the development of ambassadors that are an asset to the community.
