Ryan is a high energy individual who is always looking for something more. His competitive nature pushes him to the forefront of anything he touches. His friendly personality is to blame for his huge network of friends and sponsors that he has picked up throughout his journey.
We have been watching Ryan grow from a "small time trail rider" to a semi-professional FMX rider over the last few years and we can't wait to see where he goes in the years to come.
Ryan has grabbed a lot of attention over the last few years within the FMX community - this has curated almost 2000 followers on Instagram and six new sponsorship partners that are proud to call him their own.
Winning 1st place in the best whip competition at the 2017 annual 244 Throw Down Freestyle event (Whiskey Throttle Motorsports Compound) has solidified his new found talent.

Ryan's Goals for 2019
Improve on his trick list - Some of the new tricks that he wants to learn are; Kiss of death, Turn up whips, Holy grabs, Rock solids, Strippers and if everything goes to plan the Back flip.
Unfortunately injuries are very common in Freestyle Motocross. Ryan has endured a fair share of minor incidents but these major injuries have affected his journey the most;
Injury 1: Right Shoulder - In the spring of 2015 Ryan was riding in the hills along the North SK river when he swapped out on a natural jump. He incurred a major shoulder (scapula) injury knocking him out of the game for the majority of the season.
