As Canada’s one and only BMX Olympian in 2012, Tory has long been hailed as the fastest BMXer north of the 49th parallel. (In fact, that is the reason why Tory selected 49 as his career number).
As a longtime ABA racer - young Tory became one of the few Canadians to ever earn a NAG (National Age Group) No.1 plate in the U.S.. Backed by American sponsors - from Redline to Staats, one of his toughest competitors was his good friend from Nevada - Connor Fields. The two helped push eachother to new speeds, and there’s no coincidence that they both went on to become AA-pros and Olympians.
Like many racers, Tory has seen his ups and downs in the sport; having to overcome some major injuries. Prior to the 2008 Olympics (and being too young to qualify), he was helping train Canada’s two fastest pros before Beijing - and crashed so hard that he broke both arms. But like all successful BMX racers, he overcame that obstacle and went on to race in London in 2012.
Tory has ridden for Redline Bicycles for years, and has also been training with famed French BMX coach P.H. Sause for over a decade now.
In 2013, Tory placed 5th in the UCi Worlds main - making him the 5th fastest BMXer in the World.
