Steve is an avid cross-country mountain bike racer and triathlete based in Toronto, ON. He grew up playing hockey and golf, only to discover endurance racing after university.
Steve’s wife (fellow F2C Elite Athlete – Roz Simpson) introduced him to mountain biking in 2013 shortly after they met, and despite him not being overly impressive on that first ride, they have been riding together ever since. The Simpson pair can be found most weekends north of Toronto riding and running on the fantastic local trails, or racing an Ontario Cup XCO or a local triathlon. In previous years’, Steve has competed at the Xterra World Championships and ITU Multisport World Championships for cross triathlon and him and Roz raced the Absa Cape Epic as a mixed-pair in 2019.
For 2021, Steve is focussed on cross country mountain bike racing with XCO National Championships and a stage race as his focus. The growing gravel biking scene has also caught his eye.
F2C Nutrition products are a critical part of Steve’s diet. His favorites include Pharma-Greens every morning (before even coffee) to kick-start what are often busy and long days at the office. Ketodurance fuels his long endurance rides and Glycodurance can be found in his bottle every race day – whether for 90 minutes or 8 hours.
