Sixteen Year Old Milton McConville Trades Video Games and Cells Phones For A Chainsaw and the Great Outdoors
Milton McConville – Build Yourself
Milton McConville is young, charismatic, and almost always cracking jokes and poking fun. But beneath the light-hearted attitude and cheeky grin is a competitor looking to check off lofty goals. Like so many, he wants to ride his bike but there’s also a desire to be good at a competitive level, to be fast. In 2019 Milton headed overseas for his first experience with World Cup DH racing. He took on the challenging Andorra course and in the toughest conditions experienced at the venue in years. His experience during the first World Cup didn’t align with his dreams.
After being served a healthy dose of humble pie at the hands of the Andorra World Cup track, Milton returned home eager to improve. That growth has included the typical focus on riding technique and physical training but he also got to work building a new trail. Milton felt his riding in Andorra was hampered by a lack of experience in similar conditions. With the venue being one of the steeper race tracks on the World Cup, he went hunting for similar terrain at home to hone his skills on.
