Sunshine Coast native Max Warshawsky has joined Spent ahead of his debut World Cup season racing Downhill Mountain Biking at the highest level. After 15 years on a bike, and 2 years competing at World Cups at the Junior (U19) level, Max will compete at the Rd 2 of the Worlds season in Cairns, before heading to Europe to follow the series. Spent had a quick chat with Max ahead of the season to touch base with how everything is going and introduce him to the Spent crew!
I just got back from spending about a month riding and training in Queenstown, NZ. I haven't spent a lot of time on my DH bike this off season so it was sick to ride some proper tracks just before Cairns!
I started racing bmx when I was 5 and moved onto downhill when I was 9.
Most of the time I'm probably either riding my bike, surfing, working or just hanging out. Or travelling around other countries.
Probably getting 4th at Junior World's in 2014 and 5th at Oceania champs a couple of weeks back.
It's my first race in the Elite category so it will be good just to test the waters. I just want to qualify and anything better than that is a bonus.
I'm planning to go over to Europe at the end of May for a few months living the van life, while doing some more world cups and other euro races. Can't wait!
Goals for this whole year are mainly just to have a darn good time! I hope to get some decent results throughout the year and it would be sweet to make the Aussie team to race world champs at the end of the season. Big shout out to Bergamont Bicycles for supporting me for another season!
My Bergamont Trailster AM Bike.
Anything cold and cheap.
Probably Schladming DH track.
Maybe... But only on the road bike
Stay tuned to our social media channels as there will be plenty of updates on Max as he progresses through the year!
