Kamloops, British Columbia

Professional Freeride Mountainbiker, MTB Hall of Famer, former World Cup Team Canada snowboard racer.

"I've been loving my Tepui tent and I have to say that it is well engineered and very well made. You guys have thought of everything and it is easy to set up and pack up. I just returned from the madness of the 10 day Crankworx MTB Festival in Whistler and also used my tent on the road travelling for 3.5 weeks this summer announcing Canada Cup and BC Cup Downhill MTB races across BC encountering sweltering heat in the deserts of Kamloops and the sideways pouring rains of the Kootenays. Through it all I stayed comfortable and dry. Major props to Tepui!"
