The Story

It’s not always about being first and beating the rest. Sometimes it’s about helping yourself.

It’s not always about being first and beating the rest. Sometimes it’s about helping yourself. Road riding was never an option for Michael; as a trail runner he’s always had a close connection to nature. When he was told his injuries would limit his time on the running trails, mountain biking naturally stepped up to fill the rehab-induced void in his life. “I’d say my world fell apart a little when I was told I had to reduce my trail running. It was my life, my freedom. But my physio recommended mountain biking and, as they say, the rest is history,” discloses Michael.

In the sport for the challenge rather than the victory, the Sportelite has become Michael’s new best friend. “Running is the simplest form of sport, so it’s with that mindset that I found the Sportelite. Its uncomplicated performance suits me to the ground. We can’t all be World Cup Champions,” Michael concludes, before heading off for his daily contact with the local trails.
