Sylvi White I was initially attracted to mountain biking for the fun, but my real addiction was born when I realized the sport has no plateau. There is always a challenge, seducing me to improve. I quickly found my passion for instruction, and am grateful for coaching as a way to give back to the sport. Few things are more rewarding than watching that explosion of joy erupt from the person I just helped master a new skill.
