We are a group of friends from Portugal (Western South Europe) who love Mountain Biking and actually ride since the beginning of past decade (the nineties!).
Just for reference, when we started to ride, the most wanted suspension fork in the planet was the RockShox Mag21 and the only disk brakes we knew about were the ones fitted in the cars. Meanwhile, the times have changed and like everything in the world the MTB has evolved a lot (you would be amazed by how much things are different), but what really matters is the good times we spend while riding our bikes, am I right? đŸ˜‰

Below you can find a brief summary about each of the All Mountain Addict founding members.
please don’t take it too seriously!

what André Malheiro said about André Fernandes:

Besides riding the best All-Mountain bike in the planet (which by coincidence is the exact same model as mine), being damm fast when Newton’s law of gravity is working in his favour (especially in the technical singletrack sections), possessor of a tuned riding style and being a very competitive rider when racing against the clock, he is also the “no stress”,  “always cool” guy that cheers everyone and does is best to share the secrets of MTB spirit. Anytime we go to an event in Portugal, there is always someone who knows him, he is a kind of a pop star (in the good sense) from the MTB forums in Portugal, a true evangelist of MTB!
…true, he is also the type of guy who keeps is bike in perfect conditions, always clean, always tuned and ready for action.
the best:  the no problem attitude, always cool friend
(his girlfriend, she is our official ground support crew!)

what Filipe Ferreira said about André Fernandes:
André is a calm guy with the inner strength to damage the most stiffer material on a bike. Apart from that he is very fluid when riding. Always secure when facing new challenges in the middle of a track. Likes to variate from the usual and explore different things.
Being a former downhill rider gave him some abillities and techniques to deal with all mountain rides.
He is more like “keep in it cool” dude, funny and relaxed most of the time and focused when it´s needed.

what André Fernandes said about André Malheiro:
Skill: Agility
aptitude: Mobilize the troops
Also Known as: the rushed snail

AndrĂ© is the ideal person to motivate us to get out of bed and go riding into the mud. He is the perfect example of the All Mountain rider, always loved to climb fast and go downhill much faster, that’s why he already broke some bones… fast Singletracks are is natural habitat.
… and if by any change he can get is hands on dark beer, it will disappear faster than water in the camelbak during a summer day!

what Filipe Ferreira said about André Malheiro:
Push the limit is his life. He is always trying to achieve the best results when he rides. Sometimes he pushes beyond his limits and have some unexpected encounters with the ground, rocks or bushes. But that ins´t going to stop him.
If someone can pass in some impossible sections, so can he.
In the track he is very fast, very skilled but when it comes to mechanics he better keep his hands away from the tools. I´m not saying that he can blow off a bike with a hex wrench, but he is a bit nervous when things aren´t runnig as he wants to.
His “hiperactivity” is welcome in the trail because he cheers and encourage everyone in the group.

what André Fernandes said about Filipe Ferreira:
Skill: strength
aptitude: always “in duty” mechanic
Also Known as: The tank


you shall not engage in direct confrontation with this gentleman in case of large and quick downhill gravel tracks, he will pass by you and say good bye… the effect of gravity is tremendous!
you broke your chain and have no way to fix it? just give some basic tool to Filipe and you will see magic happening!
Snickers and water (not to mention dark beer) are is fuel.

what André Malheiro said about Filipe Ferreira:
Imagine a last generation super fast military combat tank fitted with the most advanced technology in the universe, done? now, imagine it is a two wheels tank… that’s Filipe riding in the woods  đŸ™‚Â Â  He is always fitted with the latest tools and navigation equipment, he is the salvation for any type of catastrophic event that might happen to our bikes during trail riding, always ready to help solving any kind of problem, always in a good mood and no stress at all. Besides all that, he is an experienced rider that is constantly building and evolving his riding skills at an amazing pace. Take a note: Filipe is by no means a slow rider!
…his bike? don’t know anymore… it’s completely tuned from bottom to top, he is always buying new stuff!
the best: is willingness to help anyone and his gadgets!!!
