How long have you been riding and racing bikes?
I have been riding bikes since I was 3 and have been racing since I was 7. My first race was the Salty Dog in Salmon Arm with my brother Jeremy.
Highlights for you so far?
My highlights are finishing 3rd overall in my first year in the U21 Canadian National Enduro Series, as well as having multiple U15 overall titles. I have also been on the podium at Crankworx.
What is your favourite type of riding?
My favorite type of riding is definitely Enduro, I love the aspect of mixing downhill with cross country. However, I also enjoy XC, Downhill, Cross and even Dual Slalom.
Goals for 2020?
My goals for 2020 is to finish in the top ten in the EWS in Whistler. This is the first year I will be able to race in the U21 category so I can't wait to see how I will do. I would also love to finish in the top 3 for the Canadian National Enduro Series as well as a top five in the North American Continental Enduro Series. I also would love to get more involved with the local riding scene. Sharing my passion with younger riders around Kamloops.
Goals for the Future?
My goal for the future is to make a career out of the sport I love to do, Mountain Biking. It has been my dream from a young age to race around the world. I would also love to podium in a U21 EWS and even qualify for the Trophy de Nations in the coming years. It would also be awesome to continue racing with my brother Jeremy.
What does it mean to be involved with Giant Bicycles for 2020?
For me to be further involved with Giant bikes is truly amazing. I have been riding Giant since I was 10 years old starting with the 2013 Giant Trance X3. A year later I raced my first Enduro race and Crankworx on Giant. Since then we have been riding for Giant through the Bicycle Cafe in Kamloops. I am very excited for the upcoming season.
Bikes: Giant Reign Advanced 1 29, Giant Trance Advanced 1 29 and a Giant Revolt Gravel bike.
