Matthew Fairbrother

Ergon Factory Rider

Matthew hails from Christchurch, New Zealand, where he has lived pretty much his whole life. He was introduced to two wheels at a young age and rode motorcycles for a few years before transitioning to focus on soccer. At age 11, Matthew turned the focus to riding mountain bikes. At first it was just a bunch of messing around and hitting dirt jumps with his friends. Always searching for a constant feeling of progression, Matthew dipped into racing to challenge himself...and the rest is history!
