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. Currently I compete at the international level on the World Cup circuit as well as other international, continental and domestic events. In 2021 I obtained my goal of representing Canada at the Olympics in Tokyo despite the delay due to Covid. My career goals include competing at the Olympics again 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. That’s pretty much all about me – p.s. crunchy peanut butter, not smooth.
