Hey there, my name is Simon but most people call me Freddo. I started riding and racing BMX in Alice Springs when I was 6 years old and loved building jumps with my brothers and friends on our property. I first got into mountain biking after high school while I was in Canada where I was a gap student in a little school near Montreal. They had about 150 acres with some cool single track. After Canada, I moved to Brisbane where my brother Nick introduced me to a heap of really good riders who soughed me out. I started racing XC back in 2002 and also dabbled in bit of 4X and Downhill. For training, I love riding at Gap Creek given the varied terrain and elevation available.
