Stefan is South African and raced motocross before switching to downhill when he was 20 years old. He set his sights high and put himself on the map quickly with 2 national championship titles. He was also a regular on the world cup scene with a career best 21st place in Val Di Sole 2017. The last 2 years have been tough with him breaking both hips, but he is back and ready to rumble!
