Duncan Shaw (UK)

NAME:
Duncan Shaw

NICKNAME:
I don’t know if it counts as it is technically just a “short” name but a lot of my friends and family call me “Dunc”

HOMETOWN:
Inverness, Scotland but currently living in Glasgow.

DATE OF BIRTH:
24/10/87

RIDING DISCIPLINE:
Street Trials and Mountain Bike

WHAT GOT YOU IN TO RIDING?:
Ever since I was tiny I always loved bikes/ trikes and had the stabilisers off by my 3rd Birthday.  Ever since then I always loved riding but it wasn’t until I was about 12/13 that I met some local older riders in my hometown of Inverness riding Trials Bikes on the street that It stepped up a gear and ever since then I have been hooked.

FIRST ‘REAL’ MOUNTAIN BIKE:
A red Diamondback but It was so long ago I can’t remember the model but I remember being so stoked when my mum showed up at the house with it in the back of the car.

BIGGEST INFLUENCE(S) ON YOUR RIDING:
I have been influenced by so many awesome people and riders in my riding lifetime it is hard to name just a few. When I was starting out with my friends Martyn Ashton and Martin Hawyes were definitely huge inspirations, me and my friends used to watch their Tutorial Video “Tricks and Stunts” before most rides to help us perfect our trials techniques. In more recent years I have been so lucky to live with Danny MacAskill and Ali Clarkson. I definitely have them to thank for helping accelerate my transition from more traditional trials riding into Street Trials Riding.

FAVORITE RIDING LOCATION:
I have been lucky enough to travel to some pretty amazing riding locations around the world but If I have to pick one it would probably be Malaga, Spain. The street riding there is absolutely insane and there seems to be spots around every corner plus it is pretty much sunny there all year round so it makes it the perfect riding location.

FAVOURITE CHILLING LOCATION:
Manly Beach, Sydney, Australia.

IF I WASN’T A ‘PRO’ RIDER I WOULD BE:
Oh that is a tough one, but I have always been into the business side of things so maybe some sort of athlete manager or something.

SPECIAL (non biking) TALENT:
Hmm I am not sure I have one haha.

FAVORITE MUSIC:
It is always changing but recently I have been listening to Fleetwood Mac on repeat.

PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE:
'I guess my philosophy is have fun and don’t take yourself too seriously and try not to waste your time worrying about stuff that doesn't really matter.
