Amy Johnstone

Amy Johnston

Brand Ambassador and Crow Race Team

Amy has been riding for four years and it has taken over her life in the best possible way! After a traumatic ankle injury, it was a challenge to regain form on steep tech, usually favouring flow. Having entered some races she found her passion lay in Enduro riding her Santa Cruz Hightower.

Andrew Fraser

Andy has been riding MTB properly for a year and a half. He did ride prior to this but due to a bad shoulder injury his progress was cut short. Since returning from his injury he has been riding every minute and cant get enough. Andy rides regularly at Comrie Croft and in the Tweed Valley. He would like to take on some downhill races this year with his main focus on enduro!!

Gareth Kenyon (Gaz)

Brand Ambassador 

Gareth is a passionate grassroots rider hailing from the Peak District in Derbyshire. Coming into his 3rd year on the bike now and what will be his 2nd racing season, Gareth has found a home riding enduro. Not limited solely to enduro though, his love for all things bikes sees him out on his Santa Cruz Hightower as often as he possibly can. Be that an uplift day at the bike park or even crunching out the XC miles taking in the local scenery, riding natural singletrack and generally just having a good time with his friends.

Lynn McKinley

Lynn McKinley

Brand Ambassador 

Lynn tried mounting biking back in April 2018, and absolutely loved it. She likes to get out biking at every opportunity. The trails in Aviemore are endless and there is so many trails to choose from. Lynn rides a mixture of natural trails and trail centres, with Laggan Wolftrax being her favourite, but loves to ride in different places all around the UK. She currently rides a Juliana Roubion. Lynn is hopefully riding in Ainsa next year and do some mountain biking in the Pirineos.

Founder of Crow, Brand Ambassador and Crow Race Team

Piers has been riding MTB since the first real ones were available. His first MTB was the Raleigh MTrax followed by the original Orange P7. When his day to day Crow duties allow he races, (occasionally), with the most of his riding done on steep and natural enduro style trails. More racing will ensue in 2021as well as working on new Crow Mountain Biking Products.

Vaska Allsop

Brand Ambassador 

Vaska started her MTB journey with XC in the Peak District in 2013 but soon found the real fun lies with DH and Enduro. Even though she runs a very busy sports therapy clinic and has had a fair share of injuries over the years, every spare minute she’s got is dedicated to riding. Last year was Vaska’s first competitive season and she loved every minute! Vaska raced the Pearce series and managed to come 1st overall in her category, the National DH series where she came 3rd overall and had a dabble at a round of the Welsh Enduro series where she came 2nd.
Vaska is excited about getting back on the bike after a serious shoulder surgery and trying to improve her last year’s race results in 2022.
