About MeStarted Mountain Biking in 1990. Did some amateur races back in the day before suspension. Took about 15 years off while playing Rugby and working on career. Got back into it in 2015. Guess you can't teach an old dog new tricks, b/c I've tried suspension bikes but still prefer my hardtail!! Favorite part of mountain biking for me is going as fast as possible through the woods, whether that's on the flat, rollercoasters or downhill- I just love to bomb it!!
