NICKNAME: La-Forret, Forry
HOMETOWN: Gibsons, BC
BIRTHDAY: January 24th, 1994
RIDING DISCIPLINE: Downhill racing
BIGGEST INFLUENCE(S) ON YOUR RIDING: Sam Hill, for his forward riding style and his “Fast and Loose” attitude.
SPECIAL TALENT: I can ride a unicycle and play the fiddle at the same time. I did it once in a parade.
FAVORITE RIDING LOCATION: That would be a tough one between Whistler and at home on the Sunshine Coast. Favorite race track is definitely Mont Sainte Anne World Cup.
WHAT GOT YOU IN TO RIDING?: I rode a lot with friends when I was younger and we used to ride everywhere and build jumps and trails. The freedom would be what first drew me to the sport. Now I can’t go a week without getting out on my bike, and I love the challenge of continuing to push myself in my training and riding to keep getting faster.
FIRST ‘REAL’ MOUNTAIN BIKE: A Giant Yukon.
PHILOSOPHY OF LIFE: “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t–you’re right.”- Henry Ford
PERSONAL CATCH PHRASE: “Foot out, flat out”
FAVORITE MUSIC: It can vary a lot from Lorde to the Chili Peppers to the Black Keys. I like everything except for Country!
IF I WASN’T A ‘PRO’ RIDER I WOULD BE: I would probably be working towards being a helicopter pilot or pursuing some other sport such as skiing or soccer.
