He has competed at a high level in multiple sports. Evan has always worked hard to be the best he could be in whatever he was passionate about. With over 38 years of competing as an athlete and pioneering mountain biking in NC, he brings a lifetime of knowledge to the community.

Not only has he participated in, but has over 20 years working in the sports industry. He’s worked in bike shops and sports manufacturing companies, which brings valuable experience to The Cycle Path.    He also spent 6 years with his son racing downhill mountain biking at the highest level where he was the coach, mechanic, marketing manager, and networker.  This provided the opportunity to hone his knowledge with bike choices, setup, and engaging with customers to make the right choices. His new venture is mental coaching with athletes to help them overcome their personal challenges. 

On a normal day you may run across Evan on his bike or working on trails just enjoying his days doing what he loves.  This level of passion and dedications is what sets The Cycle Path apart.
