Finn Iles first caught the attention of the mountain bike world when he won the Whip-Off World Champs held at Crankworx, Whistler. He was just 14 years old. Amongst many other things, this helped him catch the attention of the Gravity Republic racing program, allowing him to travel to all the World Cups and pre-ride the courses. When he was finally old enough to actually race he took the junior category by storm, putting together two dominant, victory-filled years and posting times impressive by Elite standards. 2018 will see Finn jump to the Elite category and take on the world’s fastest racers; continuing a legacy of Canadian mountain biking set by the great Stevie Smith!
