“Muddy” is already a stalwart of the Aussie MTB community. Cycling has been his life since he was just 6 years old and first raced his BMX. In his early teens he rode for Australia winning 3rd place in the 2007 BMX World Championships but by the time he was 12 he’d succumbed to the strong mountain bike culture in his home town of Newcastle and was lining up for his first 4X race

From 2006 -2012 he dominated the Australian 4X scene taking the National Championships 6 times and National Series championships 5 times in 7 years! He competed in the 4X World Series and was 7th in the 2012 World Championships but in the end it was Downhill that claimed his heart. He holds National Series Overall Elite titles for Aussie seasons 2014/15 and 2015/16 but it was during the 2016 World Cup Series that he was spotted by the Atherton Racing team.

Gee Atherton said “ We’re always alert to emerging potential and there were some flashes of brilliance in Muddy’s 2016 season, it was obvious that he is our kind of hard-wired racer.

At Hardline we got chance to spend some time with him and the whole team became huge fans.  We’re really looking forward to seeing how the increased support impacts on his 2017 results.”

Muddy has just finished a 4 year apprenticeship as a fitter machinist – working underground servicing mining equipment for 45 hours a week then surfacing to train and race as a privateer.  He was living out of his van and often sitting up all night maintaining his bike and building wheels.

He said “ I definitely put a lot of pressure on myself that showed on track. I’m totally stoked to be riding with Trek Factory Racing who probably have the best set-up in the Series and I can’t wait to show what I can do with the awesome Trek Session and some resource behind me. It’s everything I’ve dreamed of.

With his background in BMX and 4X Muddy is an expert in the gym and years on the road have done wonders for his cooking skills! When he’s not riding his bike he’ll be down at the beach; his surfing is pretty good but his water-skiing is all-time!
