Hi, my name is Brook Macdonald. My discipline is downhill mountain biking. I was born on 15 November 1991 in Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. My philosophy of life is just enjoy life as much as you can because it only happens once. My favourite food is Thai and grains, roast meal can’t beat that!
. My favourite music is a bit of everything. R&B, Hip Hop, and House music.

Bio

At the 2009 Junior World Championships in Canberra, New Zealand's Brook Macdonald stormed the hill to take the gold medal and make his first dent in the world of international mountain bike racing.

Racing since 2006, Brook is definitely on the up and up in the downhill scene and starting to make it big. In 2011, he scored two third place finishes on the UCI World Cup circuit in both Canada and on the famed Fort William track in Scotland. He also took the title at the iXS European Downhill Cup round in Todtnau. And it just keeps on getting better and better.

Riding for Trek World Racing Team, Brook's 2013 started as he meant to go on; the young Kiwi was again standing on the podium with a silver at the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup in the Downhill category at Fort William, UK. But after a season of promise, Brook had to retire early and undergo shoulder surgery. We've no doubt he'll be back before we know it, shredding his way through the new season, with new goals and more podiums in sight.
