On this episode of the podcast, I sit back down with fellow nomad and all-around legend Baxter Maiwald as we are both currently traveling up the coast in our van/bus escaping the wild weather back in Victoria.
Baxter loves riding his bike, period! The type of bike doesn’t really matter, as long as he is on two wheels you will see a smile on his face. Starting out as a racer with a very successful junior career Baxter has now moved more into the freeride media side of the industry, saying that he’s still one of the fastest downhill riders in the country with him finishing 3rd at national champs earlier this year in Tasmania.
He has shifted his focus now to fit in with what he gets the most enjoyment out of, such as trail building, video projects, photo shoots, the odd race, traveling in his bus, and hanging out with his trail dog “Gnala”.
He talks about the negatives and positives of walking his own path and the setbacks he has been facing lately.
We go in-depth with the state of trail building in Australia currently and how it needs to change.
All and all I always enjoy chatting with Baxter and hope you enjoy the convo!
