In this episode, you will learn about: Meet Martin the youngest podcast guest who is ripping up the cycling and triathlon scene in Dubai, which has quite the cycling culture!
Martin is a 9yr old Russian boy, who was born in Dubai.
Got his first balance bike for a New Year when he was 2 and very soon started pedalling.
By the end of 2020 followed his friend and started triathlon training, which dragged him into the cycling (still doing Tri as well)
A month ago he climbed Jebel Jais - the tallest mountain in the UAE - 1400m of elevation over
20 km climb.
Last week he won his first cycling series in his age group - 4 races 10k in U10.
His dream is to race together with Pogacar on TDF.
