Quinn started racing in 2015 and after a stellar first season, winning every race he entered in Cat 2 DH and Enduro 15 – 18 by impressive margins, he was picked up by Giant Co-Factory Team for 2016. This year he moved up a Cat, racing Junior Expert, and has remained consistent with his results. Winning, or standing on the podium at every event he’s raced thus far. It’s not uncommon to see Quinn, at 17 years old, sitting top ten in the Pro field. A 6th place pro finish at the Attitash Enduro and recently, a 7th place pro downhill finish after winning with a twenty second lead in the Junior Expert Cat. Besides having a bright future in bike racing he also exemplifies a great advocate for cycling to a younger generation and all.
Jane is a Cat 1/Pro XC racer with team Flying Wombats. Jane is from Norwich, VT and rides almost every day. Riding trails to me feels like the ultimate form of connection–to myself, my bike, my world. I love it. There’s nothing quite as thrilling as navigating singletrack on a mountain bike. I grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and spent my childhood bushwhacking through woods, hills, and creek beds behind our house. I left home at age fourteen to attend Burke Mountain Academy in East Burke, VT. During those four years I fostered a deep appreciation for the Green Mountain State and for the wonderfully well-defined and ever-changing northern seasons. And for the trails!
Moriah is most known for her Ski racing being a student athlete at Dartmouth College and having graduated from Burke Mountain Academy in 2014. however, growing up at the heart of Kingdom Trails she is no stranger to mountain biking. In 2014 she took a stab at XC mountain bike racing with great success,in her first ever race she was mistakenly added into CAT 1 but finished second. Moriah’s drive and athleticism developed over years of highly competitive ski racing certainly puts her at an advantage in her pursuit of mountain bike racing.
