ByK Kids Rider Profiles - Mae and Nels - Victorian Cyclocross Riders
Meet Mae and Nels, our Team ByK Riders who are currently competing in the Kids Victorian CX series. Mae rides a ByK 540R Road bike with nobby CX tyres, and Nels is on the 510MTB.
Mae started riding when she was 4 years old, and Nels when he was 3, and with bike-riding parents, who still compete in both road, track and mountain bike disciplines, it was inevitable they would end up racing themselves.
