Garibaldi Highlands , Canada
Founder & Head Coach of Hilltop Mountain Biking with over 15 years of combined experience racing at a World Cup Downhill and Enduro World Series level, coupled with extensive training & experience mountain bike coaching, guiding and mentoring.
Coaching Certificates include:
I began my athletics career as a world-class competitive gymnast, where I had the opportunity to represent Canada at an international level for many years.
I carry the same drive, determination and work ethic required to be an Olympic-level gymnast into my career as a mountain bike athlete, coach, and mentor.
Since retiring as a gymnast, mountain biking has been an integral part of my life and the thrill of pushing my limits on my bike continues to drive my passion for the sport today! I aim to guide my athletes to find this same level of passion, motivation and dedication to training, while keeping things adventurous, fun and positive.
I raced on the World Cup Downhill circuit for several years and then began exploring competition on the Enduro World Series and Multi-Day racing scenes, in addition to free-ride events. Nothing gets me more ‘jazzed’ than exploring new terrain and hitting big jumps and helping the riders I work with find the balance of hard efforts and keeping things fun.
Coaching and mentoring have always been a big part of my life, and much of my success on the bike I owe to my training as a former world class gymnastics athlete and coach. For over 15 years I have been transferring those skills into mountain biking, coaching, and mentoring cyclists to hone their skills and pursue their passions, whatever they might be.
