My name is Peter Disera and I have been racing mountain bikes since 2007. Cycling has always held a special place in my life since high school. I started riding at Hardwood Ski & Bike and progressed through the different theaters of mountain biking as I got older. Now I race full time competing within a full World Cup schedule, as well as at other international events annually. My career goals include being selected for the 2020 Olympic Team and putting another UCI medal around my neck.
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 pond effluent into cold water tributaries.
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. For this reason, I should probably never own a motorized two wheel device. That’s pretty much all about me – p.s. crunchy peanut butter, not smooth.
