Discipline: Downhill


How long have you been riding?

I have been riding for 8 years.


Who are your favorite riders?

Amaury Pierron and Kyle Strait.


What do you love about Ride Concepts shoes?

I love Ride Concepts because on the inside of the shoe they are so soft. I love how they are hard on the outside so I can’t stub my toe!


What shoe do you ride in and why do you like it?

I like the Transition clipless shoe because I love to ride clips for downhill. But for dirt jumping I love the Vice shoe, they are very flexible and they give me the grip I need for riding dirt jumps. They are also my favorite shoe for wearing every day.


What are your goals as a rider?

My goal as a rider is to make it to UCI World Cup downhill. I also wold love to make it to Crankworx to do the slope style. This has been a goal of mine since I was little. Just the thought of riding with all of my friends who I have been riding with my whole life when we are older at a world class level just sounds amazing.


What is your secret talent?

My secret talent is that I love to fish and grow vegetables  in my little garden.


What’s your perfect day?

My perfect day is to spend time with my family and friends doing what I love which is riding bikes, skiing, fishing and jumping on trampolines.
