Name: Karim Mansour

Age: 27

Where are you from?: Egypt

What do you do for a living? Between jobs, so for the time being I am Enjoying life!

When and why did you start cycling? Beginning of 2011, I bought a bike thinking I would be riding it around Maadi, one thing led to another, and me and a few friends ended up riding to Wadi Degla. Ever since then I’ve been riding there as often as I can.

Road, off-road, or both? Off-road

Tell us about your bike(s)!: I started off riding a Bianchi Kuma, then I moved on to a Scott Genius 30 which I ride till now. I also bought a Fuji Declaration (single speed) to ride around Maadi.

Favorite ride(s) (road or off-road): Riding in Sinai and the full Hof loop.

Do you practice other sports?: Kitesurfing

Tell us about your cycling-related injuries/accidents: Face planted, needed 50 stitches in and around my mouth.

Anything else you want to tell us about yourself? I enjoy fiddling with my bike alot, taking it apart, fixing stuff and occasionally I manage to break something. [Editors note: don't we all?! But that's how we learn!]

    18 years of riding and I can say that was the worst injury from a face plant I ever saw. And the pic above taken on our Sinai trip was just a few short weeks after. One tough MTBer.
