Zayne Heyes entered the sport of cycling in 2012 after racing as a competitive cross-country skier for 8 years. He was initially introduced to cycling through winter indoor classes at TaG, and continued on by joining the youth development team. Zayne was immediately drawn to the speed and excitement of track cycling, where his mental fortitude, fitness and agility from years of ski racing transferred well to the bike. In 2014, as a young up-and-coming cyclist, Zayne surprised many of his more-experienced competitors by winning the final points race at Canadian Track Nationals and moving up his overall standing in the elite men’s omnium from 6th to 2nd place. Zayne continues to ride for TaG team and hopes to shake up the Pacific Northwest scene as he tackles his first ever road-racing season in the U.S.A and Canada.
Zayne enjoys sharing his enthusiasm and passion for cycling and sport performance with his class, and is always keen to discuss nutrition, coffee, gear and anything else cycling related
