Johnny Cox

Originally from Ohio, Johnny grew up building jumps in the front yard and zipping around on motos before going all in on mountain biking. For the last 10 years he has been riding as much as he can, always finding his way back to the Southeast where he loves riding steep, tight, and fast technical tracks. But, he loves the climbs to get there just as much(weird, right?). As a coach he enjoys helping clients understand the “why”, implement technique, take it to the trail, and see things start to click for them.
