Competition Level: Senior
Race Bike - Giant Reign 1
Training Bike - Pinarello road bike
Bike Setup: Bike Setup: I like the suspension set-up on my Reign quite stiff. This allows me to carry speed better as well as being more efficient when pedalling. I like my brake levers fairly high and set quite far out from the bars so I don't suffer from arm pump on longer trails.
Catching the race bug early on Lewis has competed in both Enduro and Downhill MTB races as well as being involved in other sports including Rugby and surfing.
Lewis entered his first race, at Rheloa, one of the hardest downhill tracks in the country. Just fourteen years of age and on a Giant Yukon with only 100mm of suspension, Lewis was hooked. Moving across to enduro racing after two years on the DH circuit Lewis started racing for Tredz in 2016 and has been a regular on the Senior podium ever since.
As well as racing Lewis runs his own filming business 'Behind the Tape Productions'

This is the one race I have been looking forward to all year as its on home soil, but it also adds pressure to do well!
I decided to go up Friday for a track walk and have a look at the tracks before riding them Saturday morning, it was a mixture of trail centre and new off-piste natural sections that looked amazing to ride!
A week after the EWS (Enduro World Series) race, it was time to settle into ‘Uni life’ at University of South Wales, Pontypridd. Luckily my next race was only a short drive away in Cwmcarn, another good Welsh trail centre that has everything in one location. I took a break from Freshers Friday to give my body a break from partying and back into race mode.
