A born and bred Canadian, Geoff Kabush is known for racing his bike fast and having a little fun. After playing every sport in high school, Geoff decided to take MTB racing seriously after attending his first MTB World Championship as a Junior in 1995. Attending the University of Victoria and studying Engineering, he slowly moved through the ranks until a breakthrough season in 2000 saw him representing Canada at the Sydney Olympics. Since then he has piled up a record breaking 15 Canadian National titles, 5 US National MTB Series Titles, won a World Cup, stood on nine World Cup podiums, attended three Olympics, and had too many other major victories and podiums around the world to count.

Geoff is a well-known advocate for clean sport, proud of the choices he made in sport, and helped develop and launch the “Race Clean, Own Your Victory” initiative with Cycling Canada. Currently Geoff’s title sponsors are Yeti-Maxxis and he will be found racing, chasing good trails, and looking for adventure around the world. His passion and focus is mountain biking but he can also be found riding and racing cyclocross, gravel, and road bikes. Off the bike Geoff enjoys good coffee, tasty food, Belgian beers, being a sports fan, skiing, and always continuing to learn. How long does he plan to keep racing? Until the fun stops.

WHAT GEOFF RIDES

SHIMANO XTR M9000

 

YEARS ON STAGES: 5

FAVORITE POWER WORKOUTS:  I enjoy the challenge of going hard and staying relaxed on long steady 20min threshold efforts.

FAVORITE STAGES MOMENT:  The opportunity to have a power meter like Stages on all my mountain bikes has been huge. The ability to do specific training on my MTB and get feedback during races is a massive benefit. It’s incredibly powerful to have a simple system to measure power on every bike I ride.

KABUSH AND DASH:

 

WHY POWER MATTERS TO YOU: Tracking the progression in training with accuracy is huge benefit. Associating the feeling of the body with a quantifiable output gives me the ability to see if my hard work is paying off.

GEOFF’S GO-TO STAGES DASH SCREEN: No matter what I’m doing I’m always looking at 3-second Power, HR, averages, and referencing that with my body’s feeling to gauge my training. My go-to screen is: Speed, RPM, 3s avg W, HR, ride time, ride avg W, ride avg HR, Total Ascent, temp, time of day

WHY DATA IS IMPORTANT: It’s crucial for dialing in the correct intensity for specific workouts.
