Biography

British mountain bike slopestyle rider Matt Jones is constantly pushing the boundaries, both in competitions and on video.

Mountain bike slopestyler Matt Jones emerged onto the British dirt jump while still at school, before breaking into the international bike scene in 2013, at the age of 18. He's focused, competitive and has built a strong winning mentality from a young age.

Matt's competitive nature has come from growing up riding bikes alongside his twin brother. As anyone with a sibling will know, everything is a competition when growing up, and the Jones brothers pushed each other every day to see who could be better than the other.

Matt is far more than just your average rider. By 2014 – a standout year for the shredder from Milton Keynes – he'd won Farm Jam in New Zealand (also taking home the Best Trick award), achieved top 10 finishes at Vienna Air King and the Bearclaw Invitational, and placed third in the X-Games Red Bull Phenom.

Now slated as one of the best slopestyle riders in Europe, Matt is pretty much a permanent fixture in the sport's top contests, including Red Bull Joyride and the prestigious Crankworx World Tour, where his style and personality have made him a fan favourite, as well as dedicating himself to video projects like his boundary-pushing Frames of Mind and Design and Conquer.
