STORY OF JOONA
I love speed. I love to drive anything that goes fast. I also used to drive my parents crazy very fast for loving speed that much.
I was raised in Espoo, Finland. In my early days, as most of us Finns, I was introduced to ice hockey. I played in a local team as a goal keeper. It was fun but the roar of the engines kept calling all the time. I wanted to drive those go-karts and anything that moved fast and at that time I didn’t even know that it was possible to drive a motorcycle on a track.
At the age of 9 my parents could not deny my passion for speed anymore so they bought me a 50cc Honda Monkey, which I drove all the time, no matter the rain, the snow or sunshine. I was so happy! I also got to drive different cars around our country house. Automatic, manual gear, whatever, I loved it!
Later we updated the Monkey to a CBR125R-street bike and a CRF-100- cross bike. They were so much more fun to drive and I learned a lot crashing them everywhere.
Now I’m driving a KTM RC390 with Sami’s modifications.
At the age of of 14, I know I’m still a beginner for road racing, but… I want it all. And I will go for it!
