Hi I’m Elly!
I am a Squamish local and have been riding my whole life. I have raced Cross-Country, Downhill, and Road, but Enduro is where I compete now in the World Series.
I really leaned into bike racing after a few years of dealing with injury and burnout from high performance soccer. I managed to graduate from high school in Squamish early and spend the year racing the Canadian Enduro Series before I began studying Health Sciences at university.
I had the best times racing and even took home the Canadian U21 Women’s Overall title and my first ever Enduro World Series win in the open category.
Shortly after I moved to the Okanagan for university, I was invited to race for Team Canada at the Trophy of Nations World Enduro.
Racing fueled my passion for biking, personal growth and sharing my experiences with up and coming riders!
I have been coaching with Hilltop since 2023, and came to the team with 3+ years of mountain bike coaching experience, as well as multi-sport coaching experience in team sports like soccer and volleyball.
Growing up participating in programs like Hilltop, working with coaches, and reflecting on my experiences as a racer and rider has really helped shape my coaching style throughout the years.
I am a huge advocate of sport for life, and especially keeping girls in sport. Loving biking and being outside is the number one priority.
