Austin is a lifetime member of the TRF and has been for almost 20 years. He is a regular speaker at TRF club nights and is well known to British bikers as the man behind Mondo Enduro, Terra Circa, Mondo Sahara and many other motorcycle travel adventures.
Although a maths teacher for most of his life, Austin has also spent the last 20 years building up an astounding level of knowledge in the Catalan Pyrenees.
His Visibly Impressive Navigation Challenge Event (V.I.N.C.E) and its vintage counterpart, Twinshock Trailfinder have had 100s of riders map-reading their way around some of the most spectacular and gate-less scenery in the world. His latest idea is ‘Mini-Mondo’, a five-day venture with a scratch team of 8 riders rough-camping and self-catering their way across 500 miles of epic Pyrenees trail-riding.
