“I raced on the mountain bike up until a couple years ago where I switched my focus purely on road.”

Kurt first started racing in local mountain bike races when he was 7 years old. From there, he developed great bike handling skills, which have proved useful in various situations on the road. Mountain biking has made Kurt a very strong sprinter on the road because of the constant accelerations. The 2016 season was his first full year of racing Cat 1/2 and as the year went on he got comfortable riding the longer distances and adapting to the tactics and speed of the faster categories. In his time off the bike Kurt loves to read, as well as drawing. “I look forward to racing with Toronto Hustle in the 2018 season and can’t wait to get back into the racing.”
