Hi, my name is Brian Capper. My discipline is stunt exhibition and enduro. I was born on 12 March 1979 in South Africa. My philosophy of life is passion, dedication, a good work ethic and a big dream are all you need to succeed at anything in life. The most important person in my life is my wife, Nicole. My favourite music is soft rock and acoustic.

Bio

Brian Capper started riding MX at the age of nine, started trial biking at 11, and won his first National title at 18. He then spent a year in America competing in their National Championships, finishing 7th overall. 

In 2002, he competed in the National Offroad Championship, and finally achieved his dream of winning the Roof of Africa. "That year was a big one for me as I also started my Supermoto career – the best thing I've ever done," he says. 

In 2011, Brian Capper decided that he had tried all the obstacles he could do on the ground, so he decided to take up a challenge in the air. The Moses Mabhida stadium in Durban has an arch over the field that is 350m wide and 105m high (that’s a long way down). Brian’s goal: To bike up the 550 steps to the top and back down the 500 steps on the other side. Keeping momentum and balance on the way up and being careful not to cause the brakes to overheat on the way down, Brian accomplished this insane feat in style - being the first one in history to do so.

A nine times SuperMoto Champ and Trials Champion, Brian feels he has accomplished everything he wanted to accomplish in SuperMoto. Now that he feels more matured as a rider, he is now setting his sights on enduro. “I want to win a title or five there,” he says.
