On any normal day, Adrian Smith, manages an 1800 acre sheep and beef farm in the Awakino gorge. On the weekend it's a totally different scenario as he swaps the Red Bands for a seat of TCX's latest boots. While managing a commercial farm may seem like a burden to some, Adrian, the managerial roll allows him to work around his busy competitive schedule.

Adrian's introduction to racing began at the age of 15, racing Motocross and Supercross. In less than two years, Adrian branched over off to race the demanding off-road codes of Cross Country and Enduro. That change set in motion a paradigm shift in Adrian's focus and rate of success.

Having now raced for Yamaha Motor New Zealand over the last five years, "Sideshow" -- as Adrian is commonly referred to by his peers -- has won and impressive tally of eight NZ Championship titles and a further three Outright NZ Crowns aboard a diverse mix of Yamaha YZ250F, WR250F, YZ125 and YZ250 machinery.
