Author: Andrew Dodd

Andrew Dodd, better known as Doddy, has been a mountain bike fanatic since he first read Mountain Biking UK magazine in 1989. With 10 years working for us under his belt, he’s ridden a lot of great and terrible products and is always chopping and changing bikes to find the kit that stands up to his riding. From a cross-country background originally, he grew with the sport and regularly hammers downhill and jump bikes. He’s more than happy being thrown in at the deep end, having ridden with many of the world’s best riders in some of the most technical terrain around.
