Mentor: Andreane Lanthier-Nadeau
Bella Caswell is a 13-year-old Downhill, Freeride and Enduro mountain biker from North Vancouver, BC. This will be Bella’s second year in Ride Like A Girl. In 2017 Bella was matched with professional rider Isabelle Deguise where they focused on all kinds of riding and practicing technical terrain and hard features. This year she is matched with professional rider Andréane Nadeau who she’s super excited to ride with! Her dream is to one-day race all around the world in the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup and World Enduro races. Bella will be racing in the BC Cup Downhill races, Enduro races, Crankworx and local Fiver/toonie events. Some highlights from her race season was coming 2nd in both the DH and Enduro in the Kamloops River Beaver Classic in the U21 category, coming 4th for both boys and girls in the 2.fiver race and first overall for girls and more. Bella also volunteer bike coaches with Escape Adventures and does local trail maintenance days to give back to the mountain bike community. She is also sponsored by Troy Lee Designs and looks forward to this mountain bike year and many more to come!
