Mountain Biking/Downhill Freeride
Kirt has raced and stood on the podium at countless World Cup and National downhill, dual slalom and 4x races across the globe. He is a Dual Slalom National Champion, and a real, live mountain biking legend. When mountain biking began to shift toward “freestyle” riding, Kirt took to the air, winning dirt jump events and filming cutting-edge videos. He reinvented himself as a Freerider and launched AllRide, then the AllRide Academy to help support youth riders. Shaped by his childhood in a tough, volatile environment surrounded by drugs and poverty, Kirt makes it his mission to encourage kids to look beyond their surroundings, set goals and work hard to achieve them. He lives in Bend, Oregon.
