Danny bought his first mountain bike – a Muddy Fox Pathfinder – back in 1989 with money earned washing cars up and down his street. Since then he’s been hooked on mountain biking and fell into his dream job, writing about bikes, in the early ’90s. He’s worked for MBR magazine since 2002 and lost count of the number of bikes he’s tested.

Although he rarely races now, it was a big part of his life during his early years riding. Best results include 3rd place at the Garbanzo DH race at Whistler’s Crankworx in 2009 and 3rd place in the EWS Masters at Tweedlove in 2014.

His favourite places to ride are Wye Valley, Torridon, Davos, La Thuile, Whistler and his local stomping ground, the Surrey Hills.
