American Downhiller Bryce Bennett greets each morning with passion and determination, whether reconnecting with his local roots in Squaw Valley or climbing the World Cup downhill ranks. When he’s not training or racing on the World Cup circuit, Bennett takes time to step away from the sport. He keeps a routine of early morning fishing expeditions on Lake Tahoe and continues to work out alongside regular Joes at the gym in Truckee, feeding off their simple passion for hard work and personal wellbeing, fueling his motivation throughout the offseason.

Coming home gives me a break and allows me to recharge… But it also allows me to focus on other aspects of my life as well.

Up on the hill, the 6-foot, 7-inch racer has high expectations for himself and for American downhill racing. Bennett continues to rack up top-10 finishes on the World Cup and is forging ahead with even loftier goals of securing the season-long downhill title. Most importantly, though, Bennett hopes to simply make a positive impact on the sport and inspire the next generation of American downhill racers.
