Tell us about your self, Who you are and what makes you so rad? My name is Ronja aka Ron Ron, I am based in Rotorua New Zealand. My passion for bikes started later in life in my 20s but as soon as I started that was it and I was hooked, pretty much all other activities were dropped and it was all about bikes. My biggest passion for biking is always about pushing the limits and growing the sport especially for women.
Contests or just riding? Why. Competition for sure but really always just riding.
What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? Too many to pick one but definitely always the one I am on.
What do you love about riding? Riding that just makes me smile every time and love that there is always more to learn.
What you’re most proud of achieving through riding? Pushing through injuries and mental blocks and being able to come back.
One tip you would give to a grom wanting to become a pro rider like yourself. Focus on your passion and love for riding.
