Having raced as an elite rider for many years, Jonesy also has two National Masters Championship DH titles under his belt, as well as the 2016 National Champion DH in his class and bronze medal in the 2016 World Masters Championships DH in Val Di Sole, Italy.

The year that he won his second National Masters Championship in 2002, Jonesy joined the reputable downhill-focused MTB magazine Dirt as Deputy Editor.

Neil Donoghue

Former UK Gravity Enduro champion and World Cup downhill racer

From racing Downhill World Cups to winning the UK Gravity Enduro series, Neil Donoghue has been at the top of the MTB game for a long time.

A pro downhill racer of 14 years, ‘Donny’ is one of the strongest all-round riders out there. He’s raced across the globe at the very highest level for almost a decade. During his career he established himself as a competitive and stylish flat pedal thunderer as well as an Enduro champ. But luckily for Neil, just as he thought he had done everything MTB had to offer, E Bikes burst on to the scene.

“As a lifelong MTB rider ebikes have refreshed my love for riding the trails that are out back and beyond. In the past it's taken a lot of effort or uplifts to get the best trails”. Riding E Bikes allows Neil to go further, faster and longer than ever before.

 

 


 

Andrew Dodd

Award-winning MTB bike fanatic

Doddy (Andrew Dodd) has spent 16 years immersed in mountain biking media. He’s an all-round MTB fanatic who loves nothing more than a solo ride in the countryside.

His distinct passion for bike technology has led him to ride trails all over the planet, documenting influential riders along the way including Canadian Freeride icon Wade Simmons, Global Trials and Adventure rider Hans Rey and the UK-born World Cup champions Gee and Rachel Atherton.

With the new wave of E Bikes hitting the MTB market Doddy couldn't wait to get stuck into this new world of tech.

"E Bikes allow you to climb further and higher than before - regardless of fitness, they are a leveller between all riders. Don't go thinking an E Bike ride is easy. If you come back absolutely wrecked you are doing it right!"
