It wasn’t long ago that Matt Banting was mixing it with the world’s best on the tour. Unfortunately the young kid from Port Macquarie suffered a string of injuries that put a stop to him reaching his potential.

His shaper just dropped this random clip of Matt. We hope it’s a sign that the lightning fast natural footer is close to a return.

Although the support of a major sponsor might be an issue, as a quick check of Quiksilver’s site reveals Matt’s absence among the headshots of their team riders. 

We hope to see Matt back amongst it soon.
