Together with Intense Cycles, we wanted to support some deserving young up and coming DH athletes by acting as coaches, mentors and friends.

Last season, Piper and Noah Allman of Sooke BC joined Seth Sherlock of Squamish BC to create our 2015 Kovarik Racing Intense RD team. For 2016, we have brought on board 15 year old Jessie McAuley who will be racing in the competitive category of U17 Men. Our little team will hit the road to all of the BC Cups this year looking to learn, progress, go after our goals and have some fun while doing it.

We would like to thank these amazing brands for supporting this project:

Intense Cycles, Fox Head, Magura Brakes, Chromag Bikes, Smith Optics, Five Ten, Scorpion Bike Stands, Evolution Whistler

Welcome to the team!

Growing up playing in the BC mountains, Jessie fell in love with riding at an early age and after recently trying his hand at DH racing, has shown some real talent. Together with his passion, personality and attitude, we see some great potential in him. Jessie will be racing U17 this year and then heading on up to Junior so we are excited to be able to guide and mentor him as he works his way up the ranks.

Down to earth little dude

Welcome back Seth! Seth has been working with us through our Rider Development Coaching Program for the past 3 years and he has a bright future in the sport whichever avenue of it he decides to take. He lives and breathes biking, he just can’t get enough of it and it shows in his progression on the bike.

The future is bright.

Yes, it is for this young nugget! Piper has shown some significant talent for mountain biking. But it was her fierce little determination that caught our eyes. I know of a few other pretty accomplished female athletes that once had a little(big)dream :) Either way, we wanted to offer our support to help her achieve whatever it is she wants to achieve.

Explore your path.

Noah is a talented rider, trail builder and an aspiring film maker. The mountain bike industry has many opportunities and racing isn’t for everyone. We are happy to have Noah on board to explore his talents in the bike world. Look for his work on the trail as well as behind and in front of the lens as our teams media guy and freerider/ambassador.
