Growing up in Northern Ontario XC skiing was picked up early on in life, after university volunteered as a ski patroller in both the Nordic and Alpine disciplines for 5 years at both competitive events and some Ontario’s busiest resorts.
“XCBC is an amazing program and very welcoming to new members and young athletes hoping to explore the outdoors with an experienced community of adventurers, Dwayne”
His real passion is helping kids get into the sport and building their skills. Both his children have progressed through the XCBC program and are becoming excellent mountain bikers themselves.
Tory looks forward to the snow melting, the trails hardening up, and to riding with some hard working youths who like to challenge themselves in the outdoors.
Tory is a resident of Bragg Creek and has been a coach with XCBC for 7 years since the inception of the program. He is accredited as a mountain biking coach with the National Coaching Association.
I hope that I can share with you my love of being outdoors and riding.
Finally settling in Calgary, he continues to pursue his passions of enjoying his family, (Wife Tanis, Daughters Alix and Bria) along with Alpine skiing and cycling.
Jerry has been an avid Mountain Biker for a number of years now, participating in various stage races across North America as well as Grand Fondo’s. Always looking for adventures between various sports including hiking, sailing, kiteboarding, alpine skiing, and mountain biking. Being a new coach to mountain biking he brings lots of encouragement to help others enjoy the same passion. Looking forward to being part of the team.
The adventures you have and the views you see while being in the mountains are incredible. The world is a beautiful place and where we are is second to none.
I have coached many sports and different actives with my kids. This will be my first year with XCBC and I am very excited to spend time with the kids out on the trails, learning skills together and having a great experience.
Let’s have some fun in the great outdoors.
In the early 2000’s I let triathlon be my excuse for super long rides including several ironman races. We now have 2 bike happy girls that I like to ride with (admittedly almost my only rides these days). When I am not biking I can be found skiing, trail running or paddling our kayak (or washing dishes … they never seem to stop).
Over the past few years with XCBC, Thomas has progressed from student to junior coach and he truly enjoys bringing the fun of mountain biking to young kids. Now at age 15, he helps coach mountain biking for kids with both the XCBC and Winsport.
Thomas is currently a next generation athlete with Luge Canada and competes internationally.
Since that time I have spent many hours riding mountain bikes and have competed as a recreational competitor in several events including 5 years at the 24 Hours of Arenaline, the Rundles Revenge 100km, Rundles Revenge 50km, the Salty Dog and many family weekends away just enjoying the trails with my wife Tracy and iur 10 year old son Ben.
We’ve been a part of XCBC for the last couple of years with Ben doing to fall program. I’ve ridden along as aparent volunteer and am really looking forward to make the step to coach.
