He's the youngest competitor on the second season of Pinkbike Academy, he led the pack in Episode 1... and he's from right here in the Okanagan. Meet 19-year-old Emmett Hancock, our local Pinkbike celeb!
Ten up and coming professional mountain bikers arrive at Pinkbike Academy for ten weeks of racing, fitness, and skill testing challenges. The riders drop into their first challenge of the season: a one stage race from the top of Big White to the bottom.
Time to put the skis and boards back in storage and bring out the bikes and paddleboards! There are many reasons why we love calling the Central Okanagan home, and the diversity of outdoor activities is just one of them – the beautiful backdrops, no matter the time of year, is another! Those jaw-dropping views have made their way into movie productions, commercials, and more – and last year, Bike Big White made its debut in a reality show competition for aspiring mountain bike professionals! Pinkbike Academy showcased our local mountain on the world stage through the streaming network Amazon Prime, and this year, it's coming back for more action!
