The team trials took place in April, consisting of four races to determine the roster of the national team for World Cup tours in Europe in June and the 2012 Olympic Games.

He began the transition into the senior category in 2011 by earning a spot on the National B Team and winning the 2011 National Championships later that year. He has won five Junior National Titles and won a bronze medal at the 2010 Oceania Open.
