Tell us about your self, Who you are and what makes you so rad? I grew up around motor bikes so mum and dad had me on a push bike at 2 without training wheels and a dirt bike at 4. I started racing BMX at 7 and since then have competed in pretty much any sort of bicycle racing you could think of, I’ve stuck with mountain bikes for the longest because who doesn’t love riding fast through the Bush and seeing cool new landscapes.
Competition or just riding? Why Both, I love competing and racing because it pushes you to find out how far you can really go with your ability on the bike and standing on the podium is always an awesome feeling. I love just riding though because you have as much time as you want playing on features and getting creative on things that you wouldn’t normally get the chance to. All in all any kind of riding is great!
What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? Whistler Crankworx with the DHaRCO crew in the shared house. The whole trips was full of laughs and good times.
What do you love about riding? I’m a sucker for going fast and riding big jumps. It feels like the closest thing to flying.
