Seb Rogers

Author: Seb Rogers

Seb has been riding mountain bikes for a bit over 20 years. He started it as a way of escaping university lectures, and has been using it as an excuse to skip off work ever since. With six years in bike retail and another 15 as a freelance bike photographer and writer, Seb's racing career isn't a highlight. His best result was a beer-fuelled fourth in the singlespeed category at the Cheddar Challenge, but that was too long ago to count. He has racked up more miles than he cares to remember on hundreds of test bikes all over the world.
