Our newest RSD Bikes ambassador is 31-year-old Jakob Salix from Nelson, BC. This season, he's been racing the RS-291 in local enduros, snagging a bunch of 2nd-place finishes aboard the hardtail, as well as top spot in the Marin Wildside Enduro in Nakusp, BC, and a ninth-place in the Revelstoke NCES Expert category.

Jakob: "I used to make a living off of my artwork/jewelry for most of my twenties. These days I work with youth, mainly. I just got my certificate to be an education assistant and am about to start on a whole new career path. I'm looking forward to building more trails, doing art for myself, and including kiddos in the process to help inspire them to get out and be creative."

We're thrilled to support riders like Jakob at the grassroots level of our sport, and it's awesome that he pays it forward to youth in his own community.
