Pushys Sponsored Athlete | Toby Greenwood

toby-thumbnail-1About Me:
G’day I am Toby Greenwood, I am a 15‐year‐old Mountain Biker from Atherton, Australia. I currently live with my awesome and mega supportive family which consists of myself, Mum, Dad and my Little Sister. We have been living in Atherton for 7 years now and it has been sweet with the abundance of trails and variety in thing to do when I’m off the bike.

Sport:
Gravity Enduro Mountain Bike Racing

Current Bike:
Canyon Strive / Cannondale CAADX

How did you get into the Sport?
I first got into riding bikes when mum and dad got me a strider bike when I was around 3 years old. Growing up mum and dad always had bikes around whether it be mountain bikes or road bike of dads there was always a heavy influence no matter what. Straight away I absolutely loved it, when mum or dad used to take me on rides around the lake in Ballarat, Victoria or to ride the dirt jumps around town I had the time of my life. From there my riding really progressed and when we came to Atherton dad got me into BMX racing at the local club. After riding & racing there for a few years mum and dad got my first proper mountain bike and from there it was simply a matter of time before I was hooked.

Hardest aspect of the Sport:
The hardest aspect of the sport has got to be training and riding through the wet season up here in Far North Queensland. The wet season in Far North Queensland lasts for what feels forever between January and March and makes it challenging to find opportunity to ride bikes around the area as all the trails get shut and it just makes getting out to ride that little bit harder.

What does your Training week consist of?

  • Monday: Strength & Conditioning Training / Cardio (eg. Running)
  • Tuesday: Cyclocross Training Ride around the area for Km’s
  • Wednesday: Strength & Conditioning Training / Cardio (eg. Running)
  • Thursday: Mountain Bike Ride
  • Friday: Strength & Conditioning Training / Cardio (eg. Running)
  • Saturday: Long Mountain Bike Ride (Enduro Racing format)
  • Sunday: Recovery Day

How do you keep Motivated?
For me everything about riding bike is good, so it’s not hard to keep motivated. I absolutely love the awesome time spent shredding with mates or seeing what different parks and trails have on offer. But the best part of Mountain Biking is when I get to travel with Dad and Mum to different venues to race. The abundance of trails that Australia has to offer is awesome and to be given that opportunity to travel and see what is on offer through my racing and the support from others is great. Lastly the competition, I love it, the thrills and riding on the ragged edge is awesome and once your hooked you can’t get away from it.

Goals and Aspirations:
For the future I want to race as many national rounds as possible and get points for the
overall title as well as trying to get to the National Championship race. Also hopefully trying to get into some of the Enduro World Series Continental Rounds later in the year which would be awesome to experience the next level of racing and push myself even further! For the future I would love to make it into the EWS (Enduro World Series) and race for the U21 title in the future and experience riding across the world. Like they say do what you love, and you’ll never have to work another day in your life!

Best piece of advice that I’ve been given:
My mum told me, “Your bike is your office, you know what to do” and it has stuck with me ever since.
