Andrew Nel

Andrew Nel

Sales

From: South Africa (yes, it's a country on the Southern tip of the continent called Africa and no, it's not a state in Africa).

I've been riding bikes for as long as I can remember. From my first BMX around the age of 4 to my sister's road bike as a kid, I really can't count how many bikes I've had. I've been riding bikes as an adult since 2004 and have raced road and mountain bikes socially since then. I've done most disciplines including, downhill, enduro, xc, and road.

My current bike is a Trek Slash. Riding bikes and having fun is what I do, especially when gravity takes over. You have to pedal to the top to earn the downhill...unless you have lift access!
