Hi, my name is Szymon Godziek. My discipline is MTB freeride. I was born on 21 December 1991 in Suszec, Poland. My philosophy of life is be sick or lose. My favourite music is soundtracks from movies.


MTB freerider Szymon Godziek is at the top of his game. The young Polish rider, who names multi-talented legend Travis Pastrana as his idol, has already accumulated an epic list of achievements in hs career.

In recent years, Godziek has been quietly making a name for himself, earning respect through consistent, solid results and a positive, can-do attitude. With wins on his home turf at competitions like the Wombat Dirt Jumping Cup and Sfera Sportu Dirt Jumping Cup, Godziek has already made waves in Poland.

But now, he's beginning to take the international stage by storm, and between international competitions, training, and tearing up his purpose-built track at home with brother Dawid, Godziek's growing talent is gaining him increased recognition worldwide.

When he's not competing or training, Godziek can often be found in front of a camera, helping to bring freeriding to a much wider audience. After all, he's just a guy who loves to ride his bike.
