 Your most preferred discipline in Mountain biking?  

I prefer to ride fast and flowy downhill trails if there’s a drop or a jump it gives me more chance to add style to it

Who are your biggest influences in the sport?

My biggest influence is almost everybody I’ve ridden with,but apart from that Sam hill and Cameron Zink they make me feel there’s a lot more to do with a bike than just ride fast.


Are your folks supportive of what you do on your bike?

My folks are quite supportive as long as I’m not crashing or breaking bones,they like having me do something different.Their my first and only sponsors I’d say


How does your productive week look like? Is dabbling between school and Riding a smooth affair?

In my Productive week I usually get up around 7 am and ride the two local hills near my area,ripping down some known and unknown trails for about 3-4 hours in a day before college. But as soon as the weekend hits I’m off to ride the Dighi mountain which is the only challenging place I can take myself to in my hometown.


Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?

10 years from now I see myself riding on almost every terrain I wished to explore as a kid with a few podium wins and a lots of scars to remind me of my crashes and the places I’ve been to.
