Paul has had a lifelong love of all things 2 wheels. Starting off with motocross racing and motorcycle road racing in the 80's and 90's. He worked as an outdoor instructor in the Blue Mountains guiding and instructing MTB, rock climbing, abseiling and canyoning. He has competed at XC 24 hour team events (2nd in the Scott 3 man category in 2010) and 24 hour solo events (including the 24 hr World Championships 2010), gravity enduro, downhill and road racing. He also competed in multi-day events, finishing 3rd in the 2010 edition of the brutal 10 day stage race, Terra Australis.
Since stepping away from competitive riding he went on a mission to grow his skillset taking up trials riding, Dirt Jumping and BMX. He firmly believes that with the right training you can learn any skills. Paul has travelled to iconic destinations such as Whistler and Squamish in Canada, New Zealand and Tasmania along with most riding destinations on the east coast of Australia.
Having been a long time member of the Central Coast MTB Club including being Gravity Enduro and Downhill co-ordinator. At time of writing, Paul is the current President of the CCMTB and he enjoys seeing the amazing up and coming talent and sharing his knowledge and passion with others.
