Reigning ONE Flyweight World Champion, Geje “Gravity” Eustaquio , is considering to take up mountain biking as a professional career after his mixed martial arts career is done.

Eustaquio discovered the sport when fellow Team Lakay stablemate Edward “The Ferocious” Kelly introduced it to him as a supplement to their martial arts training. The two swear by the workout saying it increases their stamina and leg power.

Besides reaping the multiple health benefits of biking, Eustaquio gets to enjoy the cool breeze of Baguio City and its breathtaking surroundings of mountains, rivers, and mother nature.

“I think mountain biking is the perfect cross-training, first off all it develops balance and it also enhances your decision-making as well,” said Eustaquio. “We also develop our cardio by doing this. It helps all of us stay in shape while having fun.”

“Riding bikes is a great workout.”


The combination of being close to nature and the thrill of riding through trails made the flyweight champ think of pursuing professional mountain biking after he has retired from the world of mixed martial arts.

“It is not the same with mixed martial arts. I can’t give my whole time in mountain biking yet,” said the 29-year-old Eustaquio. “Maybe when it’s time for me to retire, I might do professional mountain biking and motocross.”

“Gravity” alongside ONE Strawweight World Champion Joshua “The Passion” Pacio , former ONE Featherweight World Champion Honorio “The Rock” Banario , and Kelly go biking in Baguio City’s various challenging and beautiful trails at least once a week during training and more if there are no scheduled bouts.

Being born and raised in the Baguio City, Benguet, they are already familiar with the thrilling terrain and know the ins and outs of the land.

“When we ride, it’s an adrenaline rush,” said Eustaquio. “We love conquering trails and at the same time it gives us access to the most wonderful creations of God.”

Going mountain biking? Here are some things you should take

Going mountain biking? Here are some things you should take

The days are getting shorter, but it’s not time to put the mountain bike away just yet. Some of the best riding of the year in Utah is found in the autumn days ahead. The beautiful fall colors, cooler temperatures and often ideal-trail conditions mean that there are many miles of fun to still be had before winter.

As the sunlight fades and the weather cools, what should you consider carrying with you on your ride? The last thing you want to deal with is fast-fading light and a trailside repair without the tools you need to get you back to the trailhead.The most popular ways to carry accessories and the necessary tools on your bike ride tend to be a seat bag, the increasingly popular frame bags, hydration packs or fanny packs (yes, they’re a thing again). You can determine what type of pack you want to use based on what’s suitable for the length of ride you are undertaking. Shorter rides can mean getting away with taking less and the all-day epic requires better preparedness.Here are some of the items you should carry for your after-work spins or weekend exploring that includes the all-day epic ride.

The basics for a short ride


The basics for a ride of around an hour (not including the proper clothing and food/water, which you should always have) should include:


  • A flat repair items-spare tube and patch kit
  • One to two tire levers
  • A tubeless-tire plug
  • Tire boot
  • Mini pump (be sure you have the proper valve-presta or schraeder) or carbon dioxide inflator (but keep in mind that it doesn’t work well in extreme cold)
  • A mini multi-tool like the Topeak Hexus X
  • Zip ties
  • A quick-chain link (in case your bike chain breaks)
  • A small first-aid kit


If you are going on a weekend ride where you’ll be exploring for a few hours or all day long, bikers should include the basics listed above, plus the following:


  • A second inner tube
  • A more comprehensive mini multi-tool (the Topeak Alien II is a favorite)
  • Shock pump
  • A mini pump to back up a carbon dioxide inflator
  • Extra tubeless valve
  • A small headlamp
  • An extra derailleur cable cut to the correct length (here’s a tutorial on how to replace it)
  • A spare derailleur hanger
  • An M4 and M5 bolt
  • Emergency energy food


Of course, none of this will help much without the knowledge of how to fix your bike. Spend some time in your local bike shop and ask them for help. Park Tool also has a fantastic series on bike maintenance on YouTube.

This list might sound intimidating, but it’s not as cumbersome as one might think and can easily be managed.

So hit the trails this fall, prepared to ride and make some new cycling memories to carry you through winter.
