Favourite tune to listen to on the bike: "Bad reputation- by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts"

Ellie Smith Tell us about yourself, who are you and what makes you so rad? I have been riding mountain bikes for 6 years. I love the thrill of racing and riding with good friends. Bikes have taken me all around the World and have brought so much joy to my life. When not riding I am a welder/fabricator by trade and enjoy coaching others to ride MTB. Ellie Smith

Competition or just riding? Both! Racing inspires me to get out and train and improve myself on the bike and sometimes it is nice to go away with mates and have a good time riding without worrying about competing. Ellie Smith What’s your all time favourite mountain biking trip? Whistler...of course! Ellie Smith What do you love about riding? I love the feeling of freedom while riding and the life long friends you meet along the journey. I also love that there are so many MTB disciplines to get amongst and learn. Ellie Smith What are you most proud of achieving through riding? I am most proud of placing 5th at the DH World champs in Juniors. I am also proud that I can pass on my knowledge to younger riders through coaching and help them with things I struggled with when I was learning. One tip you would give to a grom wanting to become a pro rider like yourself? Keep Passionate, Persistent and most of all patient. & hop on your bike and ride!
