Meet Emmy. Emmy is 17 years old from the Comox Valley and has been riding and training in the beautiful Cumberland trail network since she can remember. Emmy has been working hard towards her goal of racing on the world stage and this summer she is jetting off to compete.
Emmy said: “I will reach my dream! I’ll be racing Italy, Switzerland, and Slovenia as a first-year junior for DH and U21 for EWS. I couldn’t be more excited! I am beyond stoked and grateful to have our awesome community provide phenomenal support as well as create and maintain such an amazing network of trails to train on. I am very fortunate to have the support of Commencal Canada and from Cycling BC as a high-performance team member. My local biking community has also helped me in so many ways to reach my goals of making it to the world cup stage”
As an ambassador of the Ride Like A Girl program, Emmy wanted to give back by creating a fun event for young mountain biking girls aged 9-13 yrs. Connecting Sister Shredders is a free event to develop skills, go for a trail ride, make connections and just have fun on their bikes in a supportive environment. On Sat June 19th 10-2 at Cumberland Village Park Emmy will hold an event for girls to build confidence, work on biking skills, drills and games followed by a fun social trail ride. Find your tribe of fellow young female rippers and join this free event!
