Bio

Anthony has been tearing up jumps and tracks around his home in Canada since he kicked the training wheels off his first bike. By the time he reached 10, Anthony was already being featured on industry websites and recognised as the next prodigy in mountain biking.

Anthony has worked hard to be the best he can, simultaneously becoming one of the best in the world. In 2011, he squeaked into Red Bull Joyride in Whistler, Canada and landed in 3rd place, sharing the podium with Red Bull Canada team mate Brandon Semenuk.

His 16th Birthday in April 2012 marked a milestone in his journey when he joined the Red Bull ranks. Anthony went on to finish up his school year in BC, fitting in a string of podium results in between his studies, including a first place at Jump Ship and a third place at the Bearclaw Invitational. “This year I am looking forward to riding at all these different contests, and just having fun," he said, before heading off for a whirlwind season competing on the FMB World Tour.

The Canadian wonderkid has since achieved a more-than respectable 7th place on the FMB Tour - a promising start for such a young rider who is undoubtedly looking to rock the FMB scene.

A string of unfortunate injuries and technical issues has left him shy of his true potential in 2013, but the young Canadian ripper is ready for the new season!
