About Me

I am an 18 year old Mountain Bike racer from Ontario Canada. I race in u23/elite men in XCO (Cross Country Olympic) events and also in XCM (Cross Country Marathon). I am being coached by Andrew Watson of AWI Coaching, who is a former Norco Factory Racer. Andrew is a fabulous coach and has helped me improve as an athlete and is helping me achieve my goals. I have worked as a bike mechanic for three years and it has given me the knowledge and confidence to keep my race bike in top shape. I also recive help from Eric of Frog Cycles, who is a fantasic wheel builder. Between work, courses, training and racing it doesn't leave much time for too many other activities. But when I can I enjoy table tennis, martial arts, archery and graphic design. Archery is something that I use to improve my concentration and stability. I try to spend as much time as possible learning XHTML to build even better websites. I also am starting up a wood working business which will help with off setting the cost of my racing. If you are ever at an XC MTB event keep an eye out and cheer me on!

My Bike

Norco Revolver HT with Lauf Fork
I have raced on my Norco Revolver HT for 4 years now and it has been a fantastic bike. It was the first year that Norco produced the Revolver HT and it was hard to get since they had such a demand but I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. Shortly after I got my Revolver I upgraded the drivetrain and wheels and then it was a perfect racing set up. The following years I kept upgrading and improving what I could. I partnered up with Lauf Forks and got a Trail Racer fork to test and promote. The fork helped bring the bike down in weight and made it handle a lot better as well. Fast forward two years and it is still running in top shape.
Here are a parts list that makes my bike:

- Norco Revolver HT 7.2 Carbon Frame
- Lauf TR Boost Front Fork
- Stan's Crest Rims & Hubs
- Shimano XT m8000 Drivetrain
- Shimano XT m8000 Brakes
- Schwalbe Racing Ralph 27.5" Tires
