Sidney has always enjoyed outdoor sports and discovered her love for speed at a young age. Starting at seven, her focus was on downhill ski racing and a few years later, long-distance running was added.
In the summer of 2011, on a whim, her parents entered Sidney into her first mountain bike race, which just happened to be the Canadian Championships. Sidney placed third (out of three) for her category, but she had her first taste of racing and the podium. She has been hooked ever since.
Sidney is a 4x Canadian Cyclocross Champion, winning the title in 2013, 2014, 2016, and 2019. She also won the MTB Canadian Championship in 2015.
Sidney is studying at Queens University towards a degree in Health Sciences while continuing to focus on training and racing nationally and internationally for MTB and Cyclocross with Liv + Pedalhead.
