Thank you Squamish!
I’d like to take the opportunity to say “thank-you” to all the past and present sponsors and supporters of Team Squamish. I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to join Team Squamish at the time of its creation in 2005. I’ve witnessed all the hard work of the volunteers and sponsors and benefitted from their generous financial support and I’m truly grateful. The program has played a large part in my dedication and development as an athlete.
I will continue to race and train in Squamish but it’s time I move on. The year 2012 will be my last year as a member of the team but I hope to continue to work with the current and future riders offering any coaching or advice I might be able to pass on to them. I’ve been extremely fortunate enough to have the opportunity to race my bike all around the world and I hope that many kids will have equal opportunity.
If mountain biking is your passion Squamish is the greatest place to live and train. It’s a breeding ground for future athletes and we’re lucky to have a strong community to support us. We have an outstandingly talented group of young riders in town already so I can only imagine what the “run-bike” generation will be like!
