Growing up the youngest of five in the remote west coast of southern New Zealand, Casey Brown was quick to take to an outdoor lifestyle that included gathering edibles from the sea and forest, to wrangling sheep and chickens. Her family moved to Revelstoke, British Columbia when Casey was eleven years old and with that move came bigger mountains. During her first few years in Canada, Casey pursued competitive freestyle skiing. In the beginning, mountain biking was more of a hobby, something she enjoyed doing with her family. Casey’s brother, Sam – an accomplished pro rider in the early 2000’s – introduced her to riding early on.
Casey soon found herself shifting her attention to the sport. In 2012, Casey had a breakout year when she won the Canadian Championships, Queen of Crankworx, and placed 6th at her first DH World Cup. These performances cemented her path to the World Cup Circuit. Many podiums and successes later, she is focused on film projects and riding in Crankworx events. Casey is beyond fired up to keep making a name for herself in the freeride world.
