After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships, Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. Since then, he’s earnt his 2nd cat racing licence and Everested in under 12 hours. But Stefan's favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures.
