Matt Faulkner was born in North Bay, Ontario, where he started mountain biking and racing downhill at the age of fourteen. He completed a diploma in Mechanical Engineering Technology at Georgian College in Barrie. After spending a few years in the engineering departments of mining companies, he switched over to the bike industry. He now lives and works as a bike mechanic in Downtown Toronto.
Jeremy was born and raised in Hamilton, Ontario. He cut his teeth learning to ride the trails on the ‘Hamilton Mountain’ as well as the Dundas Valley, later honing his ‘skills’ riding in the Waterdown area. While his true passion is riding dirt single track, reality, family and work, have introduced him to road riding, albeit on a cyclocross bike – just in case there is any dirt around! When not on two wheels Jeremy enjoys skiing, brewing beer and wilderness camping. He currently lives in Toronto with his wife and kids.
Based out of Collingwood, Ontario, and surrounded by some of the best downhill and trail riding in Ontario, Jason Petznick has dove headfirst into the world of mountain biking. Aside from biking, Jason is an avid snowboarder and wakeboarder, while also finding time to dabble in writing, photography, and design. His least favourite things include pineapple on pizza, and writing biographies about himself.
Kris is a lifelong mountain biker who has been involved in the scene for well over a decade in various capacities including as an event organizer/announcer, writer, and now as an RFG Team member. Born and bred in Burlington/Hamilton, Kris works in downtown Toronto and lives in Mississauga with his wife and two children. Find him on Instagram (@somerskp).
After 8 years of competing across North America and Europe, mountain biking is no longer a sport I am apart of, rather it has become my lifestyle. Upon hanging up the racing bikes, I discovered a passion for chasing the trails and sharing my knowledge and experience with other like minded women on how to have more fun on their bikes. I have been working with local women's clubs all over Ontario since, and loving every minute of it.
