Bio

Darcy Turenne has a personality that matches her energetic, creative style on the bike she rides. Darcy was born to ride the hills where she grew up. She has loved the outdoors since a small child, which ultimately developed into her profession, basing her office in Vancouver, Canada. With an endless imagination and a strong conviction, Darcy has taken traditional mountain biking and put a twist in it, an urban style. She is just as comfortable jibbing the streets of Vancouver as she is in her backyard woods.
