Bike Passionate

As a child, I was always attracted to two wheels, it started while watching my trials-bike heros compete at events which my father took me to. I got into racing bikes at age 5, combining both trials and BMX until the early 90’s. When I first heard of mountain biking, it was my childhood dream come true and soon after, I became a professional of the sport. I was able to race internationally at the highest level of the sport for 16 consecutive years. It has been an experience of a lifetime.

My profesional racing background combined with extensive experience in sport have allowed me to develop the analytical and communication skills necessary to be working and advising the best riders and athletes of the sport.

Still today, when I go out to ride I feel like same enthusiastic kid, for me nothing has changed from when I was a kid.
