COACH ADEN DE JAGER
B. Exercise & Sports Science, Dip Rem Massage, Level 2 Coach
It all started when...
Aden was given a motorcycle for his 2nd birthday, his dad and mum travelled South Africa with him, racing in all the state and national events, just like many families currently do in motocross. At the age of 12 Aden and his parents moved to Australia to pursue a better and safer lifestyle. But that did not stop him competing in motocross and Supercross.
By the time Aden had graduated high school he was one of the top MX riders in his age category in the country, winning some state titles and placing well at national events. Aden deferred his opportunity to go to university, taking a chance at racing, after a couple of years in the Australian national circuit, Aden achieved some credible results in the MX 1 class.
In 2009 and 2010 Aden decided to take his chances in the states, he took what little money he had and with the support from his amazing parents he bought a ticket, once in the states he bought a bike and a van, he entered the AMA Motocross and Supercross series. Netting himself some credible results in the top 20 over the 2 years that he was in the United States America, in the premiere 450 class.
Aden then returned home in 2011 to pursue his education, firstly with a diploma of Remedial Massage, then a Bachelor of Exercise Science and is currently completing his honours in "cardiac fatigue". During this time Aden took up cycling, healready had the bike skills but just needed to develop some specific endurance fitness. Within no time Aden was racing the National Road series circuit, with a few top tens and state championship podiums at the elite level.
Aden took a step back from racing nationally and potentially internationally as he concentrated on his education and family. Now that he has completed majority of his studies Aden has a desire to work with Athletes of all levels, conduct cycling tours and enjoy life to the fullest
