Hi, my name is Emily Batty. My discipline is mountain bike cross country. I was born on 15 June 1988 in Brooklin, Ontario, Canada.


Born into a mountain bike-crazy family on a cattle farm in Brooklin, Ontario, Emily Batty first rode bikes for leisure with her brothers from the age of 10, but then turned her passion for all things two-wheeled into a career racing bikes.

As a promising junior, Batty competed in her first World Championships in 2005 and, since her move into the senior ranks, she’s progressively achieved better results as the years have passed on and is now a regular on the World Cup circuit. Some of her career highlights include the opening round of the 2012 World Cup, where she finished second place in South Africa. She also represented Canada at the London Olympic Games that year.

Emily has stood on multiple World Cup podiums including a fourth place in the 2012 race in Val d'Isère, a third place in the 2013 race at Val di Sole and a second place in the 2014 Cairns World Cup. She won her first Elite National Champion title in 2013 and also achieved a silver medal in the Commonwealth Games in 2014 while representing Canada.

Still of young age and steadily progressing, Emily is striving to get her first World Cup win under her belt.
