Topboss Rider Profile - Rankin
Rankin Mostert, 15 years old, Race No 94, currently racing Yamaha R1 07 in the Breakfast Run Class. My first experience on a motorbike was at the age of 6, on a friends Peewee scrambler, which ended in a crash with me flying over the handlebars, luckily only winded and lots of tears.
My Father made me get back on about 10 minutes later, which as we all know was a good thing, but at the time I thought he was nuts and who would of thought that it was the first day of a new life experience. Anyway a few years later (5 years ago) I got my first motorbike, a Pittboss and then a CR80. The off-road thing didn’t really do it for me and I wanted to ride on the track with my Dad, so he sold the off-road and bought me a CBR150. Needless to say it wasn’t long and I was racing in the now very popular 150 class and this is where I really learnt to ride.
Following that I soon grew too big for the 150 and we turned my Mom’s VFR 400 into a racer and I rode in the Powersport class. Towards the end of last year my Dad allowed me to take the R1 for a spin at track days and when we went to Midvaal. It wasn’t too long after, that I asked if I could ride it in the Breakfast Run Class, which after a long debate and negotiation with my Mother I finally got to ride. This only happened late in this season though, but I am enjoying the class. Enter Andy and Heather from the Topboss Group, don’t ask me how and when, it’s all still happening too fast for me to grasp, all I know is I’m now riding an R1 in Topboss Racing colors.
Thank you Sir and Ma’am for allowing me this opportunity and having the faith in me to be your company’s rider, I will do my best to make you proud.
