My name is Ricky Federau I grew up in the fraser valley on a small chicken farm. As a kid I would shovel chicken manure and play hockey every spare moment I had. When I was in my mid teens and I realized I was never going to make the NHL so I picked up mt biking and never looked back. I ended up racing on the Canadian national team for ten years and got to travel and race all around the world.  In 2006 I moved to the Vedder area in Chilliwack and realized that the best riding in the world is here. But I also realized that any outdoor adventure was possible, I picked up backcountry skiing, white water kayaking, hiking and fishing just to name a few. But mt biking is my real passion, I feel so lucky to live in the best place on earth and shred hero dirt everyday. My favorite food is smoked salmon, my favorite music is fleetwood mac, I drink a ton of coffee and my perfect day is when I get to ride my bike, ski, and kayak all in the same day.
