“I’m very proud and honoured to be part of this amazing team and, it’s a real honour to be here. The course is incredibly wicked fast, and there’s lots of technical climbs and downhills, and it’s a really great place to race and train.”
“This is my third Canada Games – and I had lots of fun at the last two. I’m just gonna continue to have lots of fun here and race hard, race fast. I gain experience every time I race or train and just being here, I learn new things, I meet new people, and it’s incredible and I love it.”
