Background


Hey! My name is Matthew Koen, I am 16 years old, and I LOVE to shred! Anything with two wheels is my forte, but as I have gotten older, I have come to love, respect, and have a whole lot of fun on my mountain bike. My primary focus is “Enduro,” but I do also enjoy my fair share of downhill racing, dual slalom racing, dirt jumping, skatepark riding, and XC riding and racing. Last year (2014) I raced CAT 1 Men Junior 18 and Under. However, this upcoming season, I plan to race a combination of PRO and Junior CAT 1 under 18. What started as my hobby has turned into something that can be compared to my business. I am constantly working to make new connections, be the first to register for races, and to train my a*s off (while of course having fun because that’s what it’s all about). This is the sport that I want to make my proffesion, because as they say: “If you do what you love, you will never work a day in your life.” By supporting me for this upcoming season, you will be able to follow me from an amateur pro to a big name rider placing top 10 racing the EWS and other large events. I will stay loyal to your company, and will make sure that more people buy your products. I will work hard to sell more products for you guys, be a good name for the company, be proffesional, be loyal, and have a posititve attitude about everything!
