Robin Wallner – Racing and Fatherhood

July 07, 2020

Swedish mountain biker Robin Wallner is one of the fastest enduro riders on the planet. He came from downhill racing, and made the move to enduro in late 2014. He has subsequently shown that he’s capable of standing on the podium with the top riders in the sport. We sat down to chat about his career so far and how fatherhood has impacted his racing. We also chat about bike setup, learning stages and plenty more. Oh, and Robin gives away a special little tyre tip that I’ve not heard anyone talk about before. So hit play and give this episode with Robin Wallner a listen.

You can follow Robin on Instagram @robin_wallner and find his vlog on YouTube here.
