Raised in New Zealand, Nathan was among the pioneers who started the development of mountain bike trails in Tauranga during the ‘90’s, which has now become a world famous premier mountain biking destination.
Nathan, addicted to mountain biking (accredited MTB instructor, 1st place Redbull Mount Downhill – 2000, Committed state level downhill racer, DMTBC – founder & President), loves to share unforgettable experiences in the Great Southern as well as introduce first time riders to mountain biking.
Jane was introduced to mountain biking by Nathan in Rotorua, 2011. It wasn’t until 2016 after watching Nathan race in the WA Downhill State Series & State championships, that she herself took up Mountain Biking and has even thrown on a race jersey more than once or twice.
The birth of Monkey Rock mountain bike company was a natural progression of Nathan loving his bike from his childhood. Whether on a bmx, the school cycling team or racing a downhill bike, Nathan has been having as much fun as possible on his bike for well over 30 years and since 2009 around Denmark.
Nathan was the founding president of the Denmark Mountain Bike Club (DMTBC) in 2017. This passion for mountain biking, shared with his community, is continuously progressing to new levels, facilitating formal & informal MTB events and coaching mountain bikers of all ages.
