A born and bred Canadian, Geoff Kabush is known for racing his bike fast and having a little fun. After playing every sport in high school, Geoff decided to take MTB racing seriously after attending his first MTB World Championship as a Junior in 1995.
Attending the University of Victoria and studying Engineering, he slowly moved through the ranks until a breakthrough season in 2000 saw him representing Canada and finishing 9th at the Sydney Olympics. Since then he has had piled up a record breaking 15 Canadian National titles, 5 US National MTB Series Titles, won a World Cup win, stood on nine World Cup podiums, attended three Olympics, and had too many other major victories and podiums around the world to count.
Geoff is a well-known advocate for clean sport, proud of the choices he made in sports, and helped develop and launch the "Race Clean, Own Your Victory" initiative with Cycling Canada. Currently Geoff rides for SCOTT Sports-Maxxis and will be found racing, chasing good trails, and looking for adventure around the world. His passion and focus is mountain biking but he can also be found on riding and racing cyclocross, gravel, and road bikes. Off the bike Geoff enjoys good coffee, tasty food, Belgian beers, being a sports fan, skiing, and always continuing to learn. How long does he plan to keep racing? Until the fun stops.
