Meet the Athlete

Cayden was born and raised in Hot Springs, Arkansas. Lucky for him Hot Springs, and the state of Arkansas in general, has had a big growth mountain biking and cycling community as a whole in the last 5 years. He credits much of his success to the expansion of cycling there at the same time that he has been growing as an athlete. Bikes have aways been a part of his life. Eventually it progressed into giving mountain biking a shot. Before he had team, coach, or cycling friends, his mom, dad, and brother were his riding squad and they would ride most days after school and work. He loved riding with his family and having them there to push him through the harder days. Eventually racing came in the picture and he fell in love with competing and everything that came with it. Exploring the outdoors and adrenaline sports have always been a large part of his life and he looks forward to what’s ahead for his mountain bike racing.
