Arthur Bossi started mountain biking in the remote mountains of Teófilo Otoni - Brazil when he was a teenager in the late 1990's. Being an average biker, Arthur developed an interest in endurance training as a potential solution to improve his performance in local cross-country mountain bike races. That never happened though, which led Arthur to incessantly seek more knowledge, graduating in Sports and Exercise Science in 2010, the same year in which he started coaching some more talented riders. Arthur's quest for the perfect training method ultimately led him to complete a master's degree and a PhD in Sports and Exercise Science as well. Being involved with a range of cycling projects, Arthur's research has been published in reputable scientific journals, receiving a lot of attention and being featured in specialised media outlets. Now, at the Mountain Bike Centre of Scotland, Arthur has the opportunity to share his expertise and lead on projects that can potentialize the growth and socioeconomic impact of mountain biking in Scotland
Since 2010, Arthur has been involved with a variety of cycling-related activities, from coaching elite mountain bikers to conducting research projects and leading research teams in Brazil, England, and Norway. Although Arthur has taken part in many traditional mountain bike races in Brazil, he has never competed since moving to the southeast of England in 2016. Living in Scotland now, Arthur will represent MTBCOS at the 2023 edition of the 10-h mountain bike race Under the Ben
