DOM KNIGHT

EN: Style and fluidity, two words to describe this Mountain Biker from the UK. From a young DH racer at one point ranked 5th in the south of England at the age of 15, his passion for racing later turned into a passion for creating content. Moving away from the DH scene he adapted his speed of a racer with that style and fluidity and started using those skills to create content for social media and Mountain Bike magazines.
However that rush for the fast life on 2 wheels isn’t enough for Dom though, with his love for heights, big sends and the ocean, you can also find him in the world of Cliff Jumping, with the UK Cliff Jumping crew touring spots around the UK and mediterranean, flipping cliffs as high as 70-100ft.

IT: Stile e fluidità, sono le due parole per descrivere questo mountain biker Inglese. Da giovane, all'età di 15 anni, correva come rider di DH arrivando al 5° posto nel campionato Sud Inghilterra. La sua passione per le gare si è poi trasformata in una passione per la creazione di contenuti. Allontanandosi dalla scena delle gare di DH ha convertito la sua velocità in stile e fluidità iniziando ad utilizzare quelle abilità per creare contenuti per i social media e le riviste di mountain bike.
Tuttavia, la vita da rider su 2 ruote non è abbastanza per Dom. Con il suo amore per le altezze, per i grandi salti e l'oceano, lo puoi anche trovare nel mondo di Cliff Jumping. Con la UK Cliff Jumping crew girano in tutto il Regno Unito e nel Mediterraneo, lanciandosi da scogliere alte più di 30 metri.
