whistler mechanic Arbutus Team

James Rausch


James is originally from Adelaide, South Australia and joined our team in the Summer of 2019. James started riding as young as he can remember taking his riding more seriously when he began racing in XC before heading into Enduro and DH a few years ago. Having competed in multiple National and International level Enduro’s in Australia, he moved over to Whistler to continue his development both in the industry and as a rider where he shares his passion with anyone who comes in contact with him. Starting as a bike technician early in his career has given him years of knowledge and experience ahead of many others in the industry. He has developed a healthy routine of delivering excellent workmanship in everything he does as one of our mechanics.
