Painting Meets MTB in Creative Cannondale Spotlight

In Making Marks, pro mountain biker Max Nerurkar brings together his passion for painting with his mad flair on the trail.

There’s no doubt that Max Nerurkar has developed his personality on a mountain bike. 

We immediately fell in love with his braking technique, nose wheelies, and big flavor in the berm. But it turns out Nerurkar can bring his colorful style to the canvas as well.

With the latest edit from the Cannondale Waves Crew rider, Nerurkar both shreds and paints. He started developing a love for fine art while nursing injuries and battling depression during a monthslong recovery.

“I have found many parallels between painting and riding. The one I find most useful is that a mistake is not a failure; it is a teaching point, something we can learn from,” Nerurkar said in a press release for the new vid.

“This helps me stay positive, and I find I learn more from my mistakes than my victories. I also find that both painting and riding allow me to follow a more adventurous path as opposed to a race or similar. Having the choice to go my own direction increases my wonder and lessens my fatigue.”
