Kirt Voreis has long been a leader in the mountain bike industry. He is known to be one of the best all around riders in the world and continues to be a true ambassador for the entire sport.
He began his career as a skateboarder from ages 15-18. After hurting his back in competition he began racing cross-country mountain bikes. Kirt became a professional downhill racer in 1994 after sending a tape of himself doing backflips on his BMX to Yeti bicycles owner John Parker. He has since raced and stood on the podium at countless World Cup and National downhill, dual slalom and 4x races across the globe. He is respected at the highest levels, yet makes the effort to connect with everyone who rides. Kirt lives in Bend, Oregon.
