Stephanie Hotchkiss’ experience with non-profit organisations has been extensive, with the District Parent Advisory Council of the largest school district in BC, representing 70,000+ learners and their families.
Stephanie has been a Commissaire for BMX since 2012 and now holds a “B” level.
Supporting a Para Athlete competing in an able body sport (BMX) has drawn to her attention the work needed in bringing awareness to these athletes and these disciplines. Experiencing the frustration and the inaccessibility of information for both athlete and coach this past year, has motivated her to understand the needs of the coaches and riders in order to grow para-cycling. She looks forward to working with everyone whose passion is to have equal accessibility through information and communication, and to grow this sport into the amazing opportunity she knows it can be.

Mischa Partridge’s involvement with cycling started at the age of 11 when he participated in his first BMX race at the Nanaimo BMX club. Little did he know that day would eventually lead him to a professional career for seven years. At age 26 he put aside BMX for an opportunity to compete for the national track sprint team. In the winter of 2016 he officially retired from competitive cycling to shift his focus back on education to become an athletic therapist.
While Mischa throughly enjoyed being a competitor, he also found a passion for coaching; being able to show others what an amazing part of their life cycling can be. He has been coaching BMX for nine years and it is still something he thoroughly enjoys. He has coached in many different settings, for different clubs and organizations, and has been involved with the Cycling BC BMX Development program for most of those years.
Already familiar with the organization, both as an athlete and as a coach, Mischa decided it was time to get involved at the board level. He hopes to share the many years of experience and the different perspetives he has developed to help guide and continue the growth of cycling in British Columbia.
