Pedal to the metal! American downhill mountain bike racer Luca Shaw has been chasing high-speed thrills since an early age. Introduced to BMX racing at age 4 by his dad and older brother, he’s been pushing the limits in MTB racing since he turned 13. When he’s not chewing up dirt trails at U.S. Open and World Cup races, he likes to dabble in motocross and test new custom mountain bikes in his native stomping grounds, the North Carolina mountains. And it shows! Where others see disconnected trails, bumps, rocks, and corners, Luca sees the fastest line to the finish. Not afraid to charge hard and take risks, he’s been a podium threat at downhill races all across the U.S. since his days as a junior. Supported by an impressive list of A-list sponsors, Luca turned up the heat on the UCI Mountain Bike World Cup circuit and claimed a podium spot at the MTB French Cup 2020 in Alpe d’Huez. For a glimpse into his training process, check out the new ‘Between the Races’ documentary featuring Luca alongside Monster teammates such as Loris Vergier and Troy Brosnan. And whatever you do, keep an eye on Luca Shaw at upcoming races because his time is here.
