Mat was born and raised in Christchurch New Zealand. Mat has enjoyed his passion for riding since an early age, but started to compete more seriously from the age of 14, when he entered his first ever competition. Mat has admiration for Aytron Senna, 3x Formula 1 World Champion. Mat states “Ayrton has been known for controversy but his desire to succeed and his determination to win cannot be denied!”. Mat has competed in many races but holds his international debut as a proud moment that will never be forgotten. During the past few seasons Mat has competed both nationally and overseas. In 2015 Mat finished 7th overall during the New Zealand National series and this year finished 22nd in the Oceania MTB Champs. Mat’s proudest moment was racing in Europe and North America on World Cup tracks, an aspiration since he was a young lad and a memory he will never forget.
During his off season this year Mat has ambitions to attain more lean muscle. Some of the critical components of his nutrition include Scorpion Supplement’s Creatine Monohydrate, MetaPhysics Metapro, MetaPhysics Mass Stacker and MetaPhysics BCAA. Mat’s favourite product is ZMA. He states “ZMA helps me achieve quality rest which has additional benefits such as testosterone production and greater lean muscle”
MAT’S RECOMMENDED SUPPLEMENT LIST FOR ASPIRING DOWNHILL MOUNTAIN BIKER
-MetaPhysics Mass Stacker is an off season stable for Matt. The Mass Stacker is a high protein mass gaining formula that will assist in lean muscle development which is critical for the core strength required for downhill racing!
-MetaPhysics BCAA is another must have in Mat’s back pack. These essential building blocks not only help Mat recover from training sessions but they also assist in the retention of that hard earned muscle while Mat is on the road or during intense competition meets.
