“I’m a proud supporter and believer in Team Giga-Bike’s youth development program. I started the same way here in Victoria, B.C. as a junior cyclist at age fourteen under the coaching of Team Giga-Bike’s Head Coach Steve Lund. Having support and development early has been the secret to my own success as a professional cyclist today”.
