My name is Sebastian Jayne and I race bikes. To be exact, I race mountain bikes around a set course for 1:30 hours as fast as I can! This fun sounding activity is called XCO or Olympic Cross Country and it’s the reason I decided to create The XC Perspective. For the last few years I’ve been a part of the MarathonMTB.com team delivering race insights and news from mountain bike races around the world. This will continue here on The XC Perspective with a focus on the world of cross-country mountain bike racing. Along with insights from my cross-country racing around the world, The XC Perspective will also be home to all the adventures along the way. From the back-country rides to world-wide travel and also, all the news from the cross-country racing world.
