My name is Jessica Manchester, I am 16 years old and I live in Auckland, New Zealand. I have been mountain biking basically my whole life but only started competitively when I was around 10/11 years old. I am very keen on pursuing a career in mountain biking and one day I hope to represent New Zealand in the Commonwealth Games and Olympics.
Over the years I have proudly been apart of The Endura team, NZXC Juniors and NZXC Academy team. I’ve been U15 NZ Champ, as well as U17 NZ Champ twice along with U17 Oceania Champ in 2014 and 2015.
2016 is my first year racing in Under 19’s and Torpedo7 and PURE is backing me up. I try my absolute hardest in everything and strive to be the best I can be. Cheers!!
