What makes me tick:

Wild places, action sports & live music.

MTB memory:

Picking lines down an active volcano in Indonesia.

My perfect day:

A big day out on the bike with mates, a packed lunch with epic views, fast natural singletrack descents, followed by a hot or cold brew at the end. Simple pleasures.

When I’m not riding:

I’m thinking about riding.

On my riding bucket list: 

A high altitude, multi-day Himalayan epic!
