About Us

At Sovereign Cycle we strive to be the best period. We know our gear, bikes and suspension inside and out, the attention to detail in our shop is second to none and our end goal is to leave you with the best in-shop and on-bike experience possible. That’s why we only hire the best, most experienced people available.

 

Richard Stevenson

Richard Stevenson

Richard hails from the South Island of New Zealand - although you’d never know it from the lack of accent and yes he’s a bike/fitness nut. When he’s not riding bikes you’ll probably find him on the beach playing volleyball or hanging with his four legged bud Abby. Rich has an infectious excitement for bikes and getting you set up with the right bike/gear gets him fired up! You’ll know what I’m talking about when you experience it.

Rich's top local trail: Soul Train>Feel The Love>Sons of Anarchy - Smith Creek
Rich's top 3 trails in BC: Ditch Chicken>Electric Lettuce - Vedder Mtn. Chiliwack
TNT - Revelstoke

Russ Morton

Russ Morton

Russ grew up mountain biking on Vancouver Island and has spent his life since searching Western Canada and abroad for the perfect trail. When he’s not selling, organizing the shop or memorizing parts catalogues you’ll find him out hunting for time on Strava, clearing local trails with his furry friend Finn or sweating it out at his favorite Crossfit gym. Russ is also a director/volunteer for the West Kelowna Trail Crew Society - have you got your membership?!

Russ' top local trail: Vapour>Connector>Rocky Screech - Crawford
Russ' top 3 trails in BC: Dark Crystal - Whistler
Ultimate Frisbee DH - Revelstoke

Lucas Lozeron

Lucas Lozeron

Lucas came to Sovereign via Strathmore, Alberta and he’s a bike guy through and through. If you’re looking for an expert on bike fit and set-up, he’s your man - as a grad of the United Bicycle Institute frame building course in Ashland, Oregon, you can be sure of that. Lucas is also a graduate of the UBI bicycle maintenance course. You’ll know him the second you walk in the door either by his devious smile, infectious laugh, his sense of humor that often "takes it too far" or his ginger beard.

Lucas’ top local trail: Huck To Flat - Smith Creek
Lucas’ top 3 trails in BC: Martha Creek - Martha Creek Revelstoke
Frisby Ridge - Revelstoke
Ladies Only - Mt. Fromme North Vancouver

 

Anthony Evans

Anthony Evans

A West-side local, Anthony grew up in Peachland and naturally gravitated toward punishing himself with an Ironman or 4 - before he discovered DH racing. Our resident safety officer and firefighter extraordinaire, he's the first one to offer mouth to mouth when there's an emergency. We're pretty stoked for this guy as Anthony fulfilled his lifetime goal in 2018 to race a UCI World Cup - in Croatia! If you wanna catch him in action a little closer to home though, you can cheer him on at BC Cup DH races all summer long.

Anthony's top local trail: Soul Trail>Feel The Love>Jump Line - Smith Creek
Anthony's top 3 trails in BC: Crankworx Canadian Open course - Whislter
Canada Cup course - Panorama
Sauce on the Side>Baconator - Lumby

 

Dylan Da Silva

Dylan Da Silva at Sovereign Cycle

Dylan is the most grown up shop grom you’ve ever met. He’s a West Kelowna boy through and through - if there’s another person that’s ridden the trails at Smith Creek more than him - we’d be shocked! Want proof? Check his Strava profile KOM’s and all. When you visit Sovereign, you can be guaranteed that he’ll give you an honest opinion on just about anything, but remember that even though he’s younger than you, he probably knows more than you (about bikes). Feel free to give him advice about girls though.

Dylan’s top local trail: Jabbarocky>Rock Candy - Rose Valley
Dylan’s top 3 trails in BC: Iron Lotus - Revelstoke
LSD to Canyon Creek - Golden
Sauce on the Side to Baconator - Lumby
