Meet Ngo Minh Tu
- Who is Ngo Minh Tu? My name is Ngo Minh Tu, I was born in Ha Noi, Viet Nam August 20, 1990, and I live in Ho Chi Minh City, one of the most exciting and interesting cities in Southeast Asia. At the age of 14, I began my career as a professional road bike for Hanoi city team. 4 years later, I switched it up to Trial bike to maximize my agility, strength, and balance. In order to pursue the art of becoming an all-around cyclist, I progressed to ride beyond my potential by Enduro since 2015.
