Forrest Riesco is a young Canadian racer trying to make his mark on the World Cup DH scene. Over the past few years, Riesco has been competing as a privateer. That means outside some minimal sponsor support here and there, he pays his own way to the races, while still finding the time to train and ride. That determination seems to be paying off (pun intended). In 2016, he regularly qualified for World Cup events and placed in top half of the field. Press play to see this up and coming pro in action.
