TASMAN NANKERVIS

Hailing from Bendigo, Tasman was introduced into the world of mountain biking through his two older brothers. The progression of wanting to pursue the sport came naturally for Tasman as he began competing from 14 years of age, progressing from state, to national and the international scene. Tasman has now represented Australia at the World Champs and picked up a few National podiums along the way. Tasman loves the sport of mountain biking with the range of ways it can be enjoyed, from the demands on skill ability and fitness, to the social aspect of shredding trail with friends. Tasman  continues to strive towards his career aspiration of representing Australia at the next Olympic and Commonwealth Games as well as continuing to be a positive ambassador for mountain biking and the MERIDA Brand.

Tasman rides a MERIDA Ninety Six Team and Scultura Disc 8000-e:

Riding my MERIDA 96 feels like I am on an XC rocket ship. It has the efficiency's of a hard tail but yet can absolutely transform on the descents, making shredding trails not only more enjoyable but also that much faster. It feels nibble though the tight sections and when the tail opens up is able to generate speed purely off its own suspension platform making the trails feel like one long pump track. Overall I know its the bike for me when it comes to XC racing, marathon events and just pure trail enjoyment, with the classic black and green color scheme just to make the bike a little more badass.
