Luca Shaw jumping V10 downhill bike

Luca Shaw

Arguably one of the most exciting young talents on the World Cup scene, American Luca Shaw is poised to upset the apple cart in a big way.

Hailing from North Carolina and introduced to two-wheeled sports by his father and older brother, Luca’s path to elite downhill competition started age four, racing bar-to-bar in BMX. Countless trips to national races would follow, building the foundations of what was to come.

After entering his first mountain bike race at 13, it wasn’t long before Luca discovered the world of downhill racing and the rest is history.

Luca had an incredible 2018 season but has had more than his fair share of bad luck since. He's on the cusp of greatness and we're proud to be with him on his path to the very top step of the podium.
