What is your favorite type of riding? My favorite type of riding is big adventure days on my mountain bike with friends! I love spending long days in the forest, exploring new trails and learning new skills.
What have you learned in 2022? 2022 has been a big year for me with lots of ups and downs and learning opportunities. In the first 4 months of 2022, I injured my ankle twice, the second time resulting in a few weeks on crutches and a boot. Not being able to walk a month before the first Canada Cup threw a bit of a curveball in my training but was also a chance for me to work on my mental strength. One of my biggest takeaways from the 2022 season is that patience is key. Whether it’s with injury, training, consistency in racing, or with yourself. You can’t rush the process, and everyone progresses at a different rate.
