Carl Hopps

TERRITORY: United Kingdom

BIO: Restrap employee Carl is a lover of all things off-road, and we’re a huge fan of his quiet and calm approach to riding. Carl can usually be found with a smile on his face, while tackling some of the hardest riding imaginable.

Starting out in trials biking, he gravitates towards long races with technical terrain, where he thrives in riding long distances at a steady, but strong pace.
Carl has finished 4th in GBDuro and Highland Trail 550, and has regular top 5 and top 10 finishes in other events like Dales Divide and Racing Collective events.
