Jon Rockwood

Truckee, CA

HOMETOWN: Winchester, Virginia

BIO |  I am the textbook definition of a modern trail rider.  I enjoy long climbs, high mileage, and fast descents.  I do have a competitive spirit though, and enjoy a good enduro race or Strava battle.  I’m really excited about jumping into the Truckee Bike Park this year to work on airs and manuals.

BIKE | Ibis HD3 with my eye on the new IBIS Ripmo 29er

WHY DO YOU LOVE OLYMPIC BIKE SHOP? Olympic Bike Shop has the absolute best mechanics in the Tahoe Basin.  They listen to your questions, diagnose all problems, and fix your bike incredibly quickly and professionally.  Everyone in the shop is super friendly and very knowledgeable of local trails and conditions.

FUN FACTS | When I’m not biking, I’m backcountry skiing, filming and editing for JobBob Productions, trail running and soon to be raising my first child (due on June 7th)!
