Throwback Thursday: Finn Iles at Whistler, 2017

Finn Iles has risen to become one of the top downhill riders on the 2019 World Cup circuit. He’s also one of the first  such racers to use a 29/27.5 wheel combo on his race bike. This is a shot of him from the Whip-Off World Championship at Crankworx Whistler in 2017. Finn served notice to the world that he was a force to be reckoned with when he won the Whip-Off World Championships title in 2014,  when he was 14 years old, three years before the above shot was taken. Finn  couldn’t compete in the event in 2015,  due to an injury, so he was invited to be a judge instead that year. He came back a year later and  won the Whip-Off World Championship a second time in 2016. Finn is now one of the most promising Elite Men Downhill racers on the World Cup circuit for 2019.
