Say hello to our latest team member Matt Jones:

“Hi my name is Matt. I started riding bikes when I was about 15 and my school had a mountain bike club (pretty rare I reckon!) and we went all over the place including to Morzine on a downhilling holiday! I was hooked by both the riding and the camaraderie that goes with weekends away riding with mates.

I’ve always just ridden mountain bikes and my only tarmac weapon ever has been a 35lb commuting cross bike. I’ve dabbled in a bit of downhill stuff so I like the technical descents first and foremost but discovered in the last few years I can apply my stubbornness quite successfully in 24 hour races which are now my focus.

The ethos of Team JMC is very close to my feelings about our great sport. I grew up in the club’s heartland of Ramsbottom making it even more special to join this great group of people. I’m also very lucky to have the support of some excellent sponsors that make all this possible:  M.
