Favourite tune to listen to on the bike: I always ride with music while climbing so anything up-beat, from some rock to drum and base, to hip hop or pop music.

Tell us about your self, Who you are and what makes you so rad? I am someone that loves being on his bike. I love riding with friends and sharing a beer after. I always had a passion for jumps and stylish riders but my heart belongs to racing. I have raced since I was 11 years old, first DH and now Enduro. Thanks to those I am able to look at trails in a different way thank others, always looking for the most amount of gaps and jumps.

Contests or just riding? Why. I love both, I am very competitive but I also love just flowing down a trail with some friends and watch them ride from up close. There are always some laughs guaranteed.

What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? I love going to Chile and ride and discover all the natural monuments they have. The riding I’ve done there can’t compare to anything else.

What you’re most proud of achieving through riding? Racing in Rotorua in 2019 after my strongest off-season to date and scoring my best result ever was super rewarding.
