Mountain Biker / Industrial Designer

1991/09/18

Adriaan is a qualified Industrial Designer turned pro mountain biker. Adriaan spends endless hours refining the details although he enjoys a good joke in the most serious of situations which is critical in mountainbiking where so much can go wrong at any time.

He has a passion for the outdoors, family and racing bikes. He started racing as a light back in 2004 and his passion for the sport has grown brighter ever since. Adriaan has raced for many top tier South African mountain bike teams but on on his new team, which he has started in 2015, he hopes to build the greatest mountain biking partnership that South Africa has ever seen along side his new partner, Lourens Luus.

We are a dedicated , well geared team of cyclists ready to take on all forms and shapes of challenges.

You will have a hard time finding a more determined, hard working rider than Lourens. He goes to endless depths, physically and mentally to ensure that he is perfectly prepped for every single event. He is always up for a fight and when you think he is down he will almost certainly come back for a rematch.

Lourens is a cardinal part of the team, the Ace of Spades in our pack of cards.

Together with his new team and partnership he hopes to reach the very top of the sport along side Adriaan Louw.
