Without a doubt Broc has got to be one of the coolest customers when it comes to racing a bike..or at least that's what it seems. You will not see Broc get flustered, vocal or nervous. However if you look closely you may see him check his watch a little more often when it comes to race time. Otherwise he is quiet, polite and unaffected by his rise to the ranks of World Championship Rider.
At the age of 4 he watched Wayne Gardner win a race. He turned around and asked his dad "Who is this guy". He was told that was the World Champion, to which Broc replied that that was what he wanted to be.
Broc has spent 12 years in world championship racing and spends most of the year based in Andorra, a small principality in the Pyrenees between France and Spain, also a perfect location for cycling and keeping fit during the road racing season. After a long season racing in Europe, Broc loves to go home to Australia during the break to spend as much time as possible with his son Jesse and daughter Lucia.
Broc has consistently been sponsored by Alpinestars for leathers and boots throughout his career and long term helmet sponsor Arai have so far launched two Broc Parkes replica helmets to celebrate their long relationship with Broc.
