Will Rischbieth is well known within the Mountain bike and Downhill circles as a former successful World Cup racer and competitor. Will competed for several years until a back injury forced him to retire and pursue an enjoyable diesel mechanic career while his dreams of sharing his passion and commitment to cycling simmered in the background. As a coach, tour guide and mentor he remains a passionate advocate for cycling for recreation, commuting, fitness and fun.
After leaving the World Cup race scene in 2011 due to a back injury, Will discovered a passion for mechanics and for E-Bikes.
The E-Bikes gave me that opportunity to go out riding again with friends and not flare up my back injury. I thought, if this has happened to me at a young age, imagine how many other people out there are struggling with an injury and needing some assistance while they are riding.
Will bought the first Giant Dirt E-Bike to land in South Australia and after some solid bike testing between his dad and himself, realised the positive impact E-Bikes could have on peoples lives, especially for people new to cycling.
