The Cycling Intellect - Dylan Korba's Hiatus

Aug 25, 2010
by Norco Bicycles  
Dylan Korba is a man of many bikes and many talents. We are all sad to see see him go, Good Luck Dylan!

Dylan Korba is a man of many bikes and a man of many talents. From DJ to BMX, Trials to Slopestyle, Dylan can hold his own on pretty much anything with two wheels. What many people don't realize about Dylan though, is that he has an intellectual side as well. Dylan is the proud owner of an Honors Degree in Economics from Simon Fraser University and is now on his way to Calgary to follow it up with a Masters.

More details inside,The intensity of this particular program is such that Dylan has decided to park his bikes for a short while to concentrate on his career path down the route of Economics. Although Dylan is leaving his bike at home, it is inevitable that a bike and Dylan will meet again. Norco Bikes would like to thank Dylan for all his hard work, dedication, and for adding some humour to our daily lives.

Dylan Says: "He would like to thank Norco for always being supportive of his education side and giving him the opportunity to do what he loves, ride."

Best of luck Dylan!





Here is a video and a few photos of Dylan riding from the past few years:

 Nice to see a pro using some foresight, as biking rarely pays the bills long term - there's only so many openings for 30 year old 'pro' mechanics who used to be sponsored riders!

 Getting more time to ride is my reason why I opted for a Master's degree! Getting a nice bike ain't worth it if you're using it only on Sunday.
