Kirt Voreis // AllRide

MTB - Freeride

Kirt Voreis has been a household name in the world of MTB since the mid nineties, when he began his professional career. Having raced DH and Dual Slalom around the world for 10+ years ,Kirt moved into the modern day freeride realm with a self made race and freeride video called Evolution. Since then, Kirt has been a part of the freeride movement working with the likes of New World Disorder and the Kranked series and more recently starting his own program, AllRide.

As a means to promote all styles of mountain biking and the lifestyle it brings, Kirt began sponsoring kids as part of the AllRide program in 2007. Teaching kids about the lifestyle and the rewards that come with dedicating one's self with passion and commitment, AllRide aims to provide experiences in the bike industry and inspire those involved to pay it forward and encourage others to ride!

Find a passion and live this one life to the fullest.
It's all about the RIDE... The RIDE that is life...
