Where are you from?
Born in Jeddah/KSA lived there for a while and currently living in Cairo
What do you do for a living?
Still a mechatronics student.
When and why did you start cycling?
I have started cycling last November. Actually I bought my bike to join a tour from Nuweiba to Dahab, although it was a tedious challenge and Nuweiba was full of cats during the day and mosquitoes during the night, but I really enjoyed the company.
Then I joined MTB Egypt last February and have been a mountain biking addict since then.
Road, off-road, or both?
both, touring/road biking is a very cool thing to do …. Off-road biking is much cooler.
Tell us about your bike(s)!:
It is a hardtail Peugeot FR 20 TS. Front disk breaks, rear v breaks. Shimano components.
Favorite ride(s) (road or off-road):
Off-Road (wadi degla):
The Wadi Degla Rollercoaster. I am yet to try the more advanced rides in Wadi Degla/ Wadi Hof yet.
Do you practice other sports?:
Well, I am a freediver and a spearfisher.
And in 2008 I started parachuting, and we got the first place in Egypt National Championship 2008 J
Tell us about your cycling-related injuries/accidents:
That was my first accident, fortunate enough it was caught on tape.
The second accident was almost at the same spot during the race (28th of February)
Three weeks later I had a puncture on the exact spot.
I think there is a witch buried under this spot. Or is it pure bad luck?
Anything else you want to tell us about yourself?
See you in the wadi ;D
