An engineering apprentice until he turned pro as a mountain bike downhiller in 2007 at the age of 19, Nick Beer certainly made the right move in engineering his career, taking the iXS European Downhill Mountain Bike title in 2009.
Just three years after his first downhill race he was named Swiss Junior Champion and made his World Cup debut. The 6-time Swiss national champion made his mark in the 2010 iXS series as well as claiming two top 10 finishes in the UCI World Cup. Nick had another solid UCI season in 2011 and in 2012 made it a fifth win at the iXS Swiss Downhill Cup. And, as odds-on favourite, he didn't disappoint when he added to his prestigious haul of national titles a year later.
