Maghalie has been riding bikes all her life, taking part in mountain bike races and triathlons with her dad from the age of eight. When she discovered cyclocross, her passion - which she calls Fever - for this sport was stronger than what she had ever felt before so she decided to dedicate herself to that discipline. Having fun and seeking ways to better herself through cycling - on any kind of bike or surface - has always been what drove Maghalie. Nowadays, as she travels the world to compete, her love fo the sport and for this pursuit of excellence is stronger than ever!

SYD & MACKY
Syd and Macky are a couple of professional mountain bike racers who live in a van and travel the country (and the world) in search of the best mountain bike races. They race a variety of events, everything from gravel and cross-country to enduro and downhill, and their main criteria is the race vibe, not the race type, with a focus on unique, fun, epic events.
Make sure to check out their YouTube channel where they share a behind-the-scenes look at what it's really like to be professional mountain bike racers -- what it's like to live on the road, ride your bike for a living and travel the world in search of the best races -- as well lots of things you should (and shouldn't) do if you're interested in doing a mountain bike race. They share their great days, their gnarly crashes and just about everything in between.
