Name – Andrew Paterson
Profession - Vineyard Manager
Uphill or Downhill? It used to be up but as I get older the downs are getting more appealing.
Most epic day on a bike? While bike touring in France many years ago, my bank card got rejected and I couldn't get any money out. With no food and only a couple of euros left, I grabbed a baguette and rode 210kms to where luckily some family were staying in Normandy. I was totally shattered and starving by the time I got there!
I'm currently riding… Giant Trance
Favourite trails (other than Castlemaine) - Loving Mt Buller at moment!
If I wasn't mountain biking I'd be... over on the dark side, riding on the road.
One day I'll ride... The trails in the European Alps look good.
When I head out for a ride I never leave without... knowing where I'm going.
My race highlight? These days any race I finish without hurting myself or a mechanical is a highlight.
