With Spring upon us, we’ve brought in some extra hands to better serve you. Meet Ethan. He’s one of the new faces at eSpokes St. George. Mountain biking is his passion.
Ethan has been riding with Southern Utah’s High School mountain bike team, The Flying Monkeys. His team competed at Soldier Hollow, Corner Canyon, Eagle Mountain, Moab, and the State Championships in St. George. He was one of 1,100 high school riders throughout the state that raced with the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). His best placing was 12th in his division, which made him the 3rd fastest rider at his school, in his age division. Even with early success, he’s looking to improve his placing for next year.
When we asked him what he enjoys most about riding he says, “The speed, the adrenaline, the excitement, the adventure,and being able to go wherever you want.” His favorite trails are Bear Claw Poppy and Zen.
What are his biggest frustrations on the trail? They are similar to what many of us face; flat tires, chains coming off, getting lost, and long boring up hills.
Ethan says he appreciates working at eSpokes because it helps him learn more about bikes and he can applying that knowledge to his own biking.
Ethan helps with basic bike assembly, service, and shop maintenance. Customers tell us he’s helpful, knowledgeable, and full of good manners. Next time you are in the store, make sure you say hello to Ethan.
