Matt ‘Waxer’ Walker has been racing BMX since he was eight-years-old, then began competing in downhill races when he was 16. At 23 he made his Crankworx debut in Les 2 Alpes: “Loved it, and have been to almost every Crankworx event since!” He’s had a strong presence since then, with his strongest showing to date this past season, where he made an early push for the title of King of Crankworx after landing himself on two podiums in Rotorua, including top spot in the Giant Toa Enduro.
