Entering his 3rd year in the Elite DH category, Mark Wallace is on the verge of breaking through. Close friend of Stevie Smith, Wallace stormed onto the scene from Duncan, B.C. His moto-style riding techniques help him kill the lines like no other. Electrifying crowds at Whistler Crankworx in 2012, Wallace caught the eye of Divinci Cycles and joined the Global racing team a few years later. At only 20 years of age, Mark Wallace loves riding the local trails on Mount Prevost. Mark is already a top competitor in the DH scene, OH! and having friend/mentor Stevie Smith by your side doesn't hurt either.
