What's your favourite bike and why?
I do not have one favourite. I'm passionate about all aspects of cycling and very fortunate to own a wide variety of GIANT bikes including OMNIUM, PROPEL, TCR, DEFY, TCX, TRANCE, and TRANCE X. My newest bike is the Trance X and I'm very pleased with the performance. The Trance X 29 climbs and descends exceptionally well and inspires confidence in all conditions. I'm looking forward to getting the Trance 29 built up for the summer riding season.
What's your favourite place to ride and why?
The trails built and maintained by TORCA and FVMBA are some of my favourites as they are very close to where I live. They offer everything from XC to All Mountain to Extreme trails. Given the opportunity to drive a little further afield, the NSMBA and SORCA trails are some of the most fun on the planet. When it comes to gravel and road the Fraser Valley offers endless kilometres of spectacular routes.
What's your must-have cycling accessory and why?
Titanium King Cage. Does not mark your bottles and I've never lost a bottle.
What's your favourite bike discipline and why?
As mentioned above, I'm passionate about cycling and enjoy every discipline from Track to Enduro and everything in between.
Cycling consumes my life. I get out for 4 or 5 days of alpine skiing per year and at one time was an avid curler.
Retire early and get a job in a bike shop.
Biggest cycling achievement
I enjoy epic events. I've raced 3 TransRockies, 2 TransAlp crossings and raced in the inaugural Quebec Singletrack Experience. Each was very rewarding and had its own physical and mental challenges.
