I started racing in April of 2003 at the age of 5. My Father was a National rider when I was born so racing has been in our blood for many years. I started riding a motorcycle at the age of 4 ½. I won several races and my parents began taking me to different provinces holding Motocross race. As I got older I started gaining lots of trophies and awards in various motocross races, they began taking me to a larger races with more competition like NAMSSA. Riding a Yamaha PW 50cc in my 1st motocross race in 2003, I was the darling of the crowd because of my amazing skill in riding a dirt bike given that I am just a little girl and got perseverance in racing even if I am the only girl among the competitors. My interests and enthusiasm in riding a dirt bike arose from the influence of my father, CLIFFORD S. GABRIEL, being a motocross rider himself at the time I started. With my father’s patience and support, I learned the basics of Motocross riding. For 2 years, I participated in various races. with my father where I began to show talent and interests in the sport.
In 2004, my career was temporarily stopped as my father took a premature end on his career in motocross racing due to accident during the race. I started once again in 2006 with the support of my parents. Riding my PW50cc, again I raced in various town and entered NAMSSA races. Shortly afterwards, I began racing at 65cc using my Suzuki RM65 in 2008, at the time my shift to 65cc to 85cc has been another step to my fantastic career ahead.
Aside from being a motocross rider, I also compete in Downhill, and training for another adventure for Road Race. I also love modeling and I once competed in our School for beauty Pageant and luckily I was crown as the 4th Runner-up (not bad for a 1st timer). I have huge followers on my social media accounts. Fanpage range to 33k followers and my personal account range to 50k followers, as well in my Instagram and other accounts.
