Turning 25 on June
Where are you from?:
Egypt-Philippines.. I’m half-half!
What do you do for a living?
I inflict pain on people.. Just kidding! I’m a dentist..
When and why did you start cycling?
I used to bike around a lot when I was kid.. but it was back in 2008 when I first started MTB.. it’s a common sport in the Philippines and I kept hearing a lot about it from my friends.. so I gave it a try and MTB had me at hello! =D
Road, off-road, or both?
Both, but I’d always choose off-road over road!
Tell us about your bike(s)!:
So far I’ve only rode hardtails. My bike in the Philippines was a GT, and now I’m riding an Orbea (with poor rigid suspensions).. Can’t wait to upgrade!
Favorite ride(s) (road or off-road):
Off road! the trails in Baguio City, Philippines and of course now, Wadi Degla! I love the rollercoaster and that descent at the end of the full corporate loop! =D
Do you practice other sports?:
Basketball! I joined my school’s team in junior year and continued playing it through high school and college.
Tell us about your cycling-related injuries/accidents:
Just the regular hematomas & bruises.. Thank God!
Anything else you want to tell us about yourself?
I Love Dogs! So when I get old & wrinkly, you’d probably still see me at Wadi Degla, but I’d be rollin’ with my dogs! Hopefully not on a wheelchair! LOL
