Director of Races
Like many other riders on the Shore I am a transplant, I didn't grow up but moved her for access to the mountains. It's been amazing to go from drooling over Shore trails in Diggers first video's to riding them and then getting more involved with the organization and community behind them.
Coming here in 2006 I first got involved with the riding community via the Ripper Series of events and Trail Days. Trail Days have been a staple of the NSMBA since the beginning. After the Ripper Series ended I left the community was missing a riding component. It can't be all work and no play.
My experiences as a rider in local community events in the Sea to Sky corridor made me want to help build fun riding events on the Shore. There was a solid foundation for the Toonie series that had been established before I came on the Board but it needed refinement and a catalyst to make it the best it could be.
I cannot say that every idea as Race Director has been 100% my own. It's kinda been like making a mix tape, pull the best bits from your favourites and mash it all up to make something of your own. I feel we're building a solid platform for ongoing fun community riding events. My goal for 2017 is to make it just a bit better. Continue to refine the behind the scenes work that goes into putting on these events so it can be handed off to the next mix tape master.
Look forward to fun times and great trails.
