Kade Edwards is fast! He finished 2nd overall in the 2016 British Downhill Series Youth category and will head into the 2017 season and Junior World Cups as a fully fledged member of the Trek Factory Racing team.

Kade has been a passionate racer from an early age and at just 16 he already has 56 downhill races under his belt. His first win was at Forest of Dean in the Rippers category when he was just 10 years old. Kade said “ I just love racing, its what I do, what I’ve always done, it’s bred into me”

Kade first came to the attention of Team Director Dan Brown when he tagged along to an Atherton Experience Day at Llandegla with his dad ( ex  DH racer) Tom when he was just 13 years old…

Kade obviously had talent and a great attitude, so the team kept an eye on him at UK races then in 2014 he was invited to work with the Atherton Academy.

Kade’s first year with the Academy (as a 2nd year juvenile rider) saw him take a clean sweep in the British Downhill Series with 5 out of 5 wins and the overall title. His first year of the Youth category in 2015 was frustrating for him (he consistently podiumed but could not take the win) but a vital part of his progression as a rider so by the 2016 series he was ready to take two firsts and two seconds from the 6 rounds.

Dan Brown said “Racing with Kade is always exciting as any one who’s seen him ride will know! We’re all looking forward to having him join us on the World Cup circuit.”

Kade says that his objectives for 2017 are “To win the British National Championships and at least one Junior World Cup”

When he isn’t riding his Downhill bike  Kade will be riding BMX (at the skate park or BMX races), building tracks and dirt jumps or cooking pancakes!
