Dynamic Motivation Brand with Co Sponsor, WERKS Bike aim to provide Junior Riders with assistance to reach the next level in their riding while providing mentoring in what it means to be a sponsored rider and how to achieve their best both on and off the bike. In 2013 the Junior Race Team had great results in the CORC XC series and had a very convincing class wins in both the Scott24 and the Mont 24. In 2014 the team competed in Enduro and XC and won the Scott 24 hour outright, the first time a Junior team has ever won a 24hr event outright. In 2015 the riders are honing their skills further and are placing well in their XC and Enduro events.

About Me: I am in year 12 at Canberra Grammar School studying the IB. I began racing in 2011 when I moved to Canberra. I started with XC and DH and have since moved on to race road and ride dirt jump and a bit of park. I raced the national DH series this year coming 7th at National Champs. I also snowboard and surf.
Goals in MTB: I aim to race nationals for both DH and XC and get a podium placing in both. I want to go as far as I can and get to the highest level possible for me. Other than competition I just want to have fun with my riding and stay fit.
Likes Riding: I usually do 4-5 morning rides a week, mostly in road bunches. I also ride XC and DH whenever I can and love getting out to the dirt jumps or park for a bit of chill riding. I also love 24hr events where I can do some night riding and really push myself.
Bike(s): I currently have four bikes. 2 of which are the Whyte M-109 xc race bike, and my Enduro weapon of choice, the Whyte G-150.
About Me: I have been riding and racing bikes competitively for 5 years. I have been with Dynamic Motivation from the start and with Werks bikes for three years. So far I have been given so many opportunities through riding, like going to NZ, Cairns and traveling AUS. The things you need to know about me are: I love riding bikes and going where ever it takes me, and having fun keeping it rubber side down.
Likes Riding: For the 2016 season my main focus is Enduro, the high speed, technicality and physical aspect is intense and captivating for me. It pushes my limits and forces me to keep improving my skills. However I will always love and enjoy a good old XC smash up some hills then a quick bomb down. It uses a different set of skills and the more skills the better.
Goals in MTB: For 2016 my goals are to have a respectable podium for the XC National series, and then build up my strength, skills and speed for next year when I am at the top of the under19’s age range, for my best shot at the Enduro Nationals title.
Bike: Whyte 29C XC, Whyte G150 Enduro
About Me: I am a passionate rider wanting to ride at the next level and take my racing elsewhere.
Goals in MTB: My goals are to have fun and take my racing to another level. It is also my goal to start racing outside the Canberra region.
Likes Riding: I love pushing my limits and doing big drops/ Jumps and endurance racing. My preferred choice of riding is XC but I want to try some downhill.
Unfortunately Oli and his family have moved to France but he is still riding in our team colours which means we now have an International Team :)
Bike: Whyte 401
About Me: I’m 10 years old and started Mountain biking when we moved to Canberra in January 2013. I bumped into Mic on the slopes of Stromlo Forrest Park and started in the Junior training program. Since then I’ve improved my confidence and my skills and enjoyed racing in local XC events.
Goals in MTB: To enjoy my riding, continue training to get stronger and faster and hopefully represent a national team one day.
Likes Riding: Anywhere and anything as long as I have my bike.
