My name is Peter Disera and I have been racing the pedal bikes since 2007. Since then I have been crushing out some good miles and ripping up some races. I am not a vegan. I believe there are two types of people in this world, people who like plain yogurt and people who do not. Plain yogurt should not exist in the abundance it does. Besides racing bikes I enjoy the downhill skiing lifestyle, however, recently I have been forced to believe I enjoy cross country skiing. I enjoy nature and all things that come with it (except plain yogurt). In late 2018 I graduated from the University of Guelph where I was enrolled in Water Resources Engineering. My final year design project dealt with thermal mitigation of stormwater ponds effluent into cold water tributaries.
I am a member of the Canadian National Mountain Bike program where I have attended multiple World Championships and am always looking for that spot on the podium. Cross country mountain biking is right for me because downhill gets a little too rowdy for me and road can get boring after a while. My career goals include being selected to go to the Olympics and putting another UCI medal around my neck.
I have heard that Victoria, BC is nice, however the Copeland in Horseshoe Valley, Ontario is neat too – to be clear, these are my trails. I ride bikes fast for the rush of pushing the limits of control – going fast enough that you’re out of control, but not crashing. I should probably never own a motorized two wheel device. That’s pretty much all about me – p.s. crunchy peanut butter, not smooth.
