How did you get into the outdoor space?
Being a Professional XC mountain bike racer means a lot of time to enjoy the outdoors.
Always been outdoors; I started with high-performance sports in alpine skiing and quickly transitioned to cycling.
Now, I train and ride full-time and get out in all the weather Vancouver Island offers. Cycling has such a unique connection to the outside. Any given week, I'll find myself in the woods during torrential rain, with mist and fog packing me in; or on the road, rolling down the coast looking at mountains across the straight; or way out there on a logging road in search of the snow-line. With the Sherpa, I can go further, find more, and explore greater. Albeit, my car isn’t the typical Rack Attack off-road exploring “rig,” but that’s where fitness comes in - when the pavement ends, the biking begins.
Travel/MTB tips and tricks?
If you are carrying mountain bikes, put your dropper post down - your bikes will fit much nicer on the rack!
General cycling tip: EAT! Make Sure you eat on your rides and adventures - carbs. Your day will be much more enjoyable! aha
What's your favourite place you’ve visited?
One of my favourite places in the world is a small country in the Pyrenees called Andorra. The mountains are huge, accessible, and have a beautiful array of hiking, mountain biking, road biking, and skiing - the whole works.
Locally, I’ll never forget the first time I drove the Duffy. A few years later did some camping and riding up there. BC is beautiful!
