FLYRS Rider Spotlight

In this feature we highlight one of our awesome riders.

Jack Welsch – FLYRS OG rider from the first group in 2016.
Age – 13 
School – Sinagua
What FLYRS program(s) are you currently in? I was most recently on the Composite Middle School team and the Enduro team
What do you enjoy about mountain biking? How it feels when you bomb the downhill to finish an awesome ride.
Favorite Trail? Jedi 
Do you have any favorite FLYRS memories? I enjoyed hanging out with friends at the race camp outs. I also have had great times with my Enduro coaches Nick Nation, Tate Bair, and Remi Drogi. 
Where do you hope the bike takes you next? I would like to do the Can I trail without dabbing or falling. And I would like to do all of the MBAA enduro races.
Fun fact about yourself? I love to do whips and one footers on my bike. 
What advice would you give to kids new to mountain biking? 
Ride what you can and walk what you can’t. And ride with people that are better than you to learn from them and push yourself.
