Rider Profile – Flynn Culph

Name – Flynn Culph

Profession – Primary School student

Uphill or Downhill? Downhill

Most epic day on a bike? Summer 2017, riding from Everton to Myrtleford on a 40 degree day, and I missed the water stop.

I’m currently riding … Nishiki Bushwacker

Favourite trails (other than Castlemaine) – La Larr Ba Gauwa, Harcourt; track 2 downhill, and track 4 because it seems all downhill.

If I wasn’t mountain biking I’d be … playing footy.

One day I’ll ride … all the rail trails from start to finish, on my new Cannondale

When I head out for a ride I never leave without … my helmet and my mate Angus. And Mum.

My race highlight? Pushing myself so hard in the last race (Round 5 of Central Goldfields Winter Series); when I finished I fell off and lay on the ground. I nearly vomited, but I won.

What is in your backpack? If I took one, it would be my lunch and water, but I don’t take one.
