For the past five seasons Michael has travelled all across North America and Europe competing in races and has a passion for sharing everything that he has learned at those big events to riders of all levels and abilities. Michael leads all the Cyclocross and Road events throughout the summer and fall. See our Club Calendar for more details!

In addition to coaching, Michael is still actively pursing his career as a cyclist. Although Michael is a top-level Cat 1/2 road racer, it’s cyclocross where he has really made a name for himself.  He’s represented Canada three times at the World Championships (Louisville in 2013, Hoogerheide in 2014, and Zolder in 2016), won an under-23 National Championship (2013), earned a podium at the Elite National Championships (2014), and is currently the top ranked cyclocross rider in Canada.
