Dylan McKenna – rider profile

Name – Dylan McKenna

Profession – Student

Uphill or Downhill? Definitely up! I love climbing and I am good at it because I am light.

Most epic day on a bike? My first 6hr enduro it was my first ever MTB race and I rode over 30km.

I’m currently riding… Good points and bad points – A Specialized EPIC comp carbon (from the Bike Vault) It has a brain which I really love because it is stiff when I am sprinting and climbing and it has awesome small bump recognition. The only bad thing I can think of is the fact that I can’t ride it all the time.

Favourite trails (other than Castlemaine) – Redesdale and the You Yangs, on my old hard tale I couldn’t ride at Readesdale without getting a sore back and bum. Now I have an EPIC I can ride all day without getting sore.

If I wasn’t mountain biking I’d be… Road racing and wishing I could ride my mountain bike.

One day I’ll ride… The world XC champs and the Tour de France.

When I head out for a ride I never leave without… MY BIKE

My race highlight – Winning the XCO at the You Yangs in the final round of the InterWinter.
