A born and bred Canadian, Geoff Kabush is known for racing his bike fast and having a little fun. After playing every sport in high school, Geoff decided to take MTB racing seriously after attending his first MTB World Championship as a Junior in 1995.
Attending the University of Victoria and studying Engineering, he slowly moved through the ranks until a breakthrough season in 2000 saw him representing Canada and finishing 9th at the Sydney Olympics. Since then he has piled up a record breaking 15 Canadian national titles, five US National MTB Series titles, won a World Cup, stood on nine World Cup podiums, attended three Olympics, and had too many other major victories and podiums around the world to count.
Geoff is a well-known advocate for clean sport, proud of the choices he has made in sports. He helped develop and launch the “Race Clean, Own Your Victory” initiative with Cycling Canada. Currently, Geoff’s title sponsors are Yeti and Maxxis and he will be found racing, chasing good trails, and looking for adventure around the world. His passion and focus is mountain biking but he can also be found riding and racing cyclocross, gravel, and road bikes. Off the bike, Geoff enjoys good coffee, tasty food, Belgian beers, being a sports fan, skiing, and always continuing to learn.
How long does he plan to keep racing? Until the fun stops.
- 3x MTB Olympian (9th Sydney 2000, 20th Beijing 2008, 8th London 2012)

Keep riding until the fun stops.
I got hooked riding on a mountain with the same name as me; Mt. Geoffrey on Hornby Island.
FAVORITE GU PRODUCT
Grape Roctane Energy Drink Mix
I always try to keep gels and chews easy to reach. Hydration packs with front pockets on the shoulder straps are great. If I have to stop to access food I am much less likely to stay on top of nutrition. For long workouts, I like to carry the handy single-serving pouches to refill my bottles at water stops. Being able to refill with essential electrolytes really makes a difference.
