Mountain biker since 1999, I ride Cross Country and Downhill and anything in between. I also commute by bike some days(home to work and vice versa) in a very hilly city.

Started competition riding in 2008 national level in Honduras, Central America. I usually perform most of the maintenance and even major repairs in my bikes or friend's bikes. I own a small collection of bikes consisting of a road bike, one hardtail, three full suspension XC bikes and a DH bike. All of them except the road bike where assembled completely by me and none has ever fallen apart! ;)
