Forward Racing – Norco is a Canadian mountain bike team racing nationally and internationally. The team is committed to a program that supports its athletes to become world class on and off the bike. Forward Racing is built on partnerships with businesses that believe in the values and the vision of the program.
After a long and successful mountain bike career, Evan announced his retirement from international mountain bike racing at the end of the 2017 season. He moved on to focus on other things in life such as his rapidly growing custom sock company, Sneaky Socks. Evan will remain a part of the team to help Lespy with team management and by creating new opportunities for sponsor engagement like the Forward Racing MTB XC Fantasy League.

In its first year as a team, Forward Racing-Norco will be offering two $500 awards to young Canadian cross-country mountain bike racers with aspirations to race at the highest level of our sport. There will be one male and one female recipient.
Evan McNeely and Andrew L’Esperance of Forward Racing have been very fortunate to receive the support of countless individuals on the Canadian mountain bike scene; both through our own development and in the creation of the team. This support and generosity is what keeps our sport going and we want to be a part of that process. We hope that this fund will encourage a young rider to get to the start line when they might not have otherwise been able to do so.
For the first year, we will award selected male and female applicants $500 each that can be used to offset travel and race fees. Please follow the link below to meet the 2017 recipients.
