Lach PatonI started Mountain biking after my dad bought a bike. I would chase him through the hills behind our house on my old BMX bike. It didn’t take long for me to realise that bigger wheels and gears were a good thing. I forced him to take me out to a few races my friends were doing ……life has never been the same since! Riding has always been fun in Canberra, with a great MTB community and so many places to ride there is always someone to chase around the trails.

When I am not on the bike you can find me up at the snow with friends. I have been working in the bike industry since completing a degree in Psychology at the University of Canberra in 2012. I am pretty Excited about having the opportunity to race with the Trek Racing Australia team for the coming season. With the great crew that is TRA there is never a dull moment when away at races. I am looking forward to learning from other members of the team who bring a wealth of knowledge and race experience to share. It is a privilege to be riding with one of Australia’s best teams.
Bring on the racing!
