Hi, I’m Mic Longhurst the owner and founder of Dynamic Motivation. I’m 53 years old and most of my life has been involved in some sort of adventurous activity. I have worked in the outdoors in climbing, rafting, kayaking, diving, bushwalking, mountain biking, and competed in a wide range of adventure sports.
I have a long history in Mountain Biking, I started racing in 1989 and have competed in every type of event including XC,DH, 4X, Enduro and Trials, with a number of podiums at State and National level across disciplines. I was coaching coordinator for CORC for 6 years and ran all of their coaching during that time.
I have been running DM for the last 7 years and have Cert IV Personal Trainer, Cert IV Trainer Assessor, MTBA Level 1 MTB Coach, UCI Level 2 MTB Coach, PMBI MTB Instructor level 1 and 2 and I am one of 6 PMBI Instructor Trainers World Wide. With these qualifications and spending around 400 hours a year face to face instructing all levels from beginner to elite, adults and junior, makes me one of the highest qualified and most experienced MTB Instructors in Australia.
I have also been running a successful Personal Training and Sports Conditioning business with a strong focus on Functional Movement and have very happy clients.

Sprocket is a 4 Year old Kelpie and as far as he is concerned the owner of the business. He can be found supervising many of our programs just to ensure the quality is up to standard and clients are happy. If they don't look happy this can be solved with kisses and cuddles whether you want them or not..
Interests: Chasing most anything that moves with a particular interest in sheep or kids on bikes as he views them to be equally as capable of organising themselves. Loves hanging out on the bus and running the trails..

Hi I'm Dan ive been riding dirt since 2009. I originally started as it was a great way to hang out with mates but it soon became much more. My background os predominantly downhill, trail and enduro, however have occasionally dabbled in road riding. I have been instructing with dm since 2014 and have loved every minute. Being on the bike, helping people achieve their riding goals keeps me motivated and loving my work with Dynamic Motivation.
