My name is Jessie McAuley. I am 16 years old from Squamish BC. I have been riding mountain bikes since I first moved to Squamish eight years ago from McBride BC a small mountain community in northern BC. My parents had me in the mountains as early as I can remember. Now my whole life seems to revolve around them with everything I do. Moving to Squamish was a perfect decision as Squamish is surrounded by endless mountain ranges. For my first three years riding I was focused on dirt jumping eventually landing my first backflip at 13. After that I soon realized my passion for down hill racing and continued to do that at a provincial and national level up until this season. After all these years riding I have come to the realization that what I enjoy most is pushing fitness as much as possible but I have not lost my love for going fast downhill. This season I decided to put them both together and race Enduro and XC. I will be racing a mix of EWS, BC enduro series, BC cup and Canada cup XC races.
Some other sports and activities I enjoy are ski touring/ mountaineering, Trail Running, Climbing, Mountaineering, road riding, going on adventures in the mountains, photography and playing my guitar. This is my first season with team Squamish and I can’t be more happy with how it is going. I cant wait to see what the future has to hold with TS!
