Jackie Swider rode mountain bikes since 2009 and began racing professionally about five years ago. She was introduced to the sport about a decade ago and blessed with a welcoming small cycling community in San Luis Obispo.
She believes mountain biking can be a lifelong sport and there are infinite ways to keep progressing it! She is a USA Cycling Certified Coach Class III, UCI licensed professional Racer. She is grateful to be supported by cycling component manufacturers like Onyx Racing and Rotor Bike since 2015 and newly Kenda Tire, Knolly and Race Face.
Mentoring riders is her passion and expect to see more riders traversing technical trails and taking ownership of their bike mechanics. “A savvy rider is a safe rider.”
She is working hard to save up a few world travels with Enduro World Series, Mega-Avalanche, Trans BC Enduro and so forth. She is inspired by other riders, and fueled by the support from the community. Many thanks to the friends, family, Onyx Racing, ROTOR Bike, Kenda Tire, Race Face, and Knolly frames that have supported her projects and dreams.
