Two of Canada's most promising mountain bike talents, Evan McNeely Andrew L’Esperance have collaborated on a new team. At the end of the 2016 season, they had an opportunity to build a new Canadian mountain bike team; they jumped in and haven't looked back. Together, these athletes have produced Canada Cup wins, US Cup podiums, captured the Canada Cup overall title 2 years straight, have a National Championship title and raced several World Cup and World Championship events. Evan and Andrew are both mechanical engineering graduates and have experience in design, business and entrepreneurship. Together they have built Forward Racing.
