Cole got into riding at the age of 7 when he was trying to chase and keep up with his two older brothers. He started out racing BMX for a number of years before then deciding that DH racing was more his thing. Cole started racing local downhill races before going on to race at the UCI World Cup and World Champs as a junior. After a few good EWS results while racing the UCI downhill series, Cole decided to race a full EWS season. In his first full season as a U21 racer last year, he managed to finish 3rd overall and is looking forward to stepping it up and racing Elite this year.
