Rory grew up riding bikes in the UK.
He says " We didn’t have a bike park or extensive trail network but we built our own jumps and trails and learned from our mistakes. After a couple of riding trips to Whistler I realized it was where I wanted to be full-time. I started coaching in the bike park in 2013 and have been a full-time coach ever since.
I love coaching Downhill, Enduro and dirt jump sessions and am passionate about race-specific coaching and long-term athlete development.
