Reagan Duffy radio interview on Rhys “Roo” Burnett

1291

I have to give credit where credit is due and I am really impressed with how Reagan Duffy handled himself during this radio interview on ‘Breakfast with Steve and Basil’ 6PR show soon after the tragic passing of fellow competitor Rhys “Roo” Burnett.

“A WA Motorcross rider is heading to Amsterdam to represent Australia at the World Championships next week, but it was only days ago he lost a fellow rider and good friend after a crash on the track.

West Australian teenager Reagan Duffy will make his appearance on the world stage.

“It’s massive, it’s the Olympics of motocross and for me to get chosen at 17 to represent my country, it’s pretty crazy actually,” Duffy told 6PR Breakfast.

But it will be a bittersweet journey for him after his childhood friend, Rhys “Roo” Burnett, died after an accident during a competition last weekend.

“He was always smiling, always joking and now I’m just going to continue on for Roo,” he told Steve and Baz.” 6PR Radio.
