While studying at university in Montreal, he joined the mountain bike club, and decided to pursue cycling as a sport.
After attending the GP Montreal and watching the pro tour racers, he decided it was something he wanted to pursue. Ever since, he’s focused on racing and training to become a pro level cyclist. His trainings have taken him across North America.

Zwift races have provided him with extra motivation in the winter, and it has definitely had a significant impact on his racing. Justin said that thanks to Zwift, he has definitely improved as a racer, and achieved a number of podium results as a result.
