The Manitoba cycling community has encouraged and supported me from the beginning. I discovered bike racing six years ago in a local Kids of Mud Club. The club was focused on mountain biking, which I was never very good at. I quickly made a full transition to road cycling and cyclocross, and have raced on the road representing Team Manitoba for four years, and Accent Inns / Russ Hays for the last year and a half.

Accent Inns / Russ Hay’s took me on for 2015 after winning Junior Cyclocross Nationals in 2014. I represented team Canada at the 2015 Cyclocross World Championships in Tabor, Czech Republic, and then turned my focus entirely to road cycling in the spring. A concussion last year ended my season pretty quickly, but it fueled my determination to have a rewarding season in 2016.

It’s been a long-time goal to race for H&R, and I couldn’t be more excited to get going!
