Jenny is an avid mountain sports gal, spending her winters skiing and summers riding, and being mom to her two girls all four seasons! She began coaching while in college in the U.K. with the regional rock climbing team and later the beginner kayakers. Jenny has been a ski instructor for 12 years, 10 of which at the Lake Louise Ski Area. She started coaching mountain biking 3 years ago and has coached with RMCC and Town of Banff Kids Camps. Her favourite Bow Valley trails are the Lake Louise Highline (for the views!) and Topp Notch for a fast technical loop right out of her front door.




Robin Pollard
Robin grew up riding in the RMCC Spring Youth Revolution and has continued on to join the RMCC Racing Development Program. She loves the challenges and the constant adventure that mountain biking offers. She has lots of racing and riding experience, and has been lucky enough to be coached by many extraordinary coaches through the years. Some highlights from racing include two provincial championship wins, second place at nationals, and racing in Switzerland and Germany for the Canadian Junior National Team. She loves to share her passion for biking and is constantly looking to inspire young athletes, especially young girls, to love the sport as much as she does. Robin is excited to return for another year of coaching with the club, and is especially excited to get on to the trails with RMCC’s young mountain bikers!
