Most 11-year-olds spend their free time in the movies or just chilling in front of the TV. The life of the 11 years old Jack Pullen is quite different than other kids. Jack Pullen shows the world that you can achieve anything and that age doesn’t matter. His passion for motocrossing was already big many years ago. At the time of 7 years, Jack won his first regional and national awards.
His journey began in South Africa. The 11-year-old was born and raised there. His dad also shared a great passion for racing. Jack was therefore introduced to the sport at a young age. He knew right from the start that this was exactly what he wanted to do in life.
He started with his training very early. Today, the junior motocross champion trains 5 to 6 times a week. A training session lasts an average of 3 hours.
But also in Jack’s life not everything goes as planned . Last year in June, Jack Pullen was badly injured during his training. So strong that he had to go to hospital for several weeks. During these difficult times he was supported by his coach Tylar Rattray. Tylar Rattray is a master in this field. As a world motocross-champion he knows how to support young talents the right way.
Jack mastered this challenging time very well. Only one month later he was able to start his motocross training again. In the same year, he was able to get podeium placments in Florida (USA).
In previous years, the motocross youngster has already been crowned with many regional awards in the 65cc classes. This year he wants to participate in the US MX season for the first time. He also tells us that he wants to continue his career in the USA. So he plans to move to Florida later this year.
Jack doesn’t have time to waste! In addition to his intensive training, he still goes to school and trains in the gym. Since the 11-year-old travels a lot, his lessons are mostly online.
Jack is also sponsored by many well-known international brands such as Twin Air, OGIO, ProTaper, Arma Sport EVS Sport, FMF and Matrix Concepts, Jack is supported at every event by his parents. This mental support helps him not to lose focus at major international events.
Through motocrossing, Jack has not only grown as a person, but has also travelled around the world a lot. The junior motocross champion shares his travel experiences on his blog and his social media channels. On Instagram, Jack already has over 39 thousand followers from all over the world.
