Kiran MacKinnon

Bio

Kiran started mountain biking in 2009 at the age of 16, and quickly picked up downhill racing when a friend from school introduced him to the sport. In 2010, he began working in the Santa Cruz Bicycles engineering department part-time while still in high school. Between work and school, Kiran continued downhill racing whenever possible, and was given the opportunity to race a previously strength-tested Carbon V10 prototype for his first year on the U.S. National circuit as a junior. In 2011, Kiran took that same frame to a podium at every Pro Gravity Tour event he entered, as well as to Champery, Switzerland to race at the Downhill World Championships.

 

Kiran now works full-time in the engineering dept. at Santa Cruz Bicycles doing product development, and continues to race Professional Downhill.
