The Journey to Elite
At 19, Jackson Goldstone has already secured the titles of Junior Downhill World Champion and Junior Overall World Cup Champion. Now on the verge of his first elite World Cup season, what will this next chapter have in store for him?
Goldstone is no stranger to the spotlight. His bike skills were first showcased in 2010 in viral video ‘Jackson Run Bike to Kindergarten’ where the 11 year old jumped, spun and dropped his way to school through trails and skateparks: “this kid is gonna grow up and probably win like idk Red Bull Hardline or something like that…”
The YouTube prophecies came true in 2022, with Goldstone winning with a lead of 6 seconds on the world’s hardest mountain bike course.
If his spectacular win in this elite race is anything to go by, the 2023 race season is going to be one to watch.
