Hi, my name is Aaron Chase. My discipline is mountain bike freestyle. My friends call me AC. I was born on 17 November 1978 in New Hampshire, USA. My special talent is my unique, technical style and creative lines. My philosophy of life is ride hard and have a good time. The most important person in my life is my wife and kids. My favourite food is grilled cheese and apple sauce. My favourite music is Pink Floyd.

Bio

Although he's only in his 30s, Aaron Chase has already been declared a legend of mountain biking. He's been on the cutting edge of the sport for over a decade, innovating not only the way people ride, but the way courses and bikes are built, as well as how MTB films are scripted and shot.

Since winning the dual urban freeride grails of Red Bull Bike Battle and Red Bull District Ride, Chase has gone on to pioneer the all-terrain slopestyle movement that reclaims the creative spirit of mountain biking. And one look at his schedule – packed with film shoots, comps and coaching gigs – proves that, when it comes to the legend of Aaron Chase, there's still a lot left to write.

A long-time collaborator on Freeride Entertainment's New World Disorder series, Chase is also a popular director, editor and rider for Don Hampton's DH Productions, and starred in the company's 25th DVD adventure, Here We Go Again.

Riding, filming and designing courses, Chase is taking on anything that comes his way and admits he just loves to share his passion for catching air.
