Riley Westra, 16, W.A - Sponsored/Junior Ambassador.
Riley is a future star and we are happy to connect with him and have him on the WTR Team. We sat down recently for a quick chat, to see what is ahead for 2018 for the young gun originally from Woollongong, NSW. Now living in W.A.
Favourite place to ride?
My favourite place to ride in WA would be Linga long mountain bike park or the local, Welli Mills.
When did you start riding bikes and who is your main influence in the industry?
I started riding bikes at the age of 2 but didn't start to take it serious until i was about 13, my main influence original started as dad, but now I don't think you could go past Sam Hill, being from WA, you gotta always choose the locals.
What is your greatest achievement so far in the Industry?
My greatest achievement would be getting on a pro team in 2018.
Goals for this year?
My goals for 2018 are to compete in all GE national rounds and to place my best against the best in WA.
Who will you be riding for in 2018?
In 2018 I will be riding for Giant WA and Buy Cycles Carine, Perth.
