Diego Caverzasi is an explorer of what can be done on this planet despite gravity. The constant escape from it, a challenge to bend its limits. His passion led him to become a world-class professional rider, while his curiosity led him to delve into every aspect of the gravity world: from the mechanics of bicycles to the creation of trails on which to use them.
A true expert in the gravity world which he shows through his Youtube channel “Diemtb”, from this year he will collaborate with Lee Cougan in the research and development of products in the segment.
Professional mountain biker and Italian YouTuber from Varese, born in 1994.
A precocious talent, always attracted by extreme sports, in 2003 Diego developed a passion for Slopestyle, the most technical and extreme discipline of Mountain Bike. Since 2012 Diego has participated in the Slopestyle World Championship (FMB World Tour), improving his placings year after year and collecting several podiums in the most important international competitions. In 2017 he ranked 6th in the world rankings, reconfirming himself in 2018 and taking part in prestigious Invitationals such as the Crankworx World Tour, FISE World Tour, Red Bull District Ride, Munich MASH.
Following a conversation with his friend and athlete Max Fredriksson in 2019, Diego decides to start posting videos of his travels and adventures on Youtube, opening the DieMTB channel which touches on various topics: competitions, travel, trail building, Lego, mechanics, tutorials, adventures and challenges with the neighbor Andrea Panzeri.
Since 2016 he has been active as a builder (“trail builder”) for the construction of new bike parks, skate parks, private trails, and sports centers dedicated to mountain biking.
The collaboration with Diego was born with the aim of implementing and innovating the Gravity segment. Diego will bring his experience not only as an athlete but also as a world-class technician in Lee Cougan’s research and development, with a focus on the brand’s Gravity range.
A completely custom frame with dedicated livery distinguishes the bicycle created by Lee Cougan for Diego. A dirt/slope style model, with a customized brand color scheme, which bears the words “less sugo more tonno” on the top tube.
This year Diego will face a major competition calendar: Zurich Dirty Contest, IXS DIRT MASTERS, Barrel Bike Fest, Redbull Roofride, O’Marisquino Vigo. In addition, @diemtb will also organize 4 Bike Camps where you can admire him in action and learn his secrets, alongside one of the world-famous slopstylers.
