Dustin LeclercHead Coach Performance Mountain Bike Team
As a cyclist my Racing and Coaching experience comes primarily from the various Mountain Biking disciplines having raced and coached XC, Downhill and Endurance events over the years. My love for mountain sports brought me west to Alberta in 2009, having a settled in the Okotoks and having first child I look forward to joining the XC Bragg Creek ski and mountain bike programs as a coach and sharing my passion for the mountains and an active lifestyle.
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.
