Bas ’Steezebergen’ (“didn’t start that myself I swear”) van Steenbergen has been a fixture on the Crankworx scene since 2011, first as a junior, and more recently as winner of the 2016 Fox Air DH at Crankworx Whistler. Born in the US, raised in Holland, and now with a home base in Kelowna, BC, van Steenbergen has been ripping on two wheels since his parents took the training wheels off his bike at three-years-old. When he was 14 he started racing BMX, progressing to downhill racing at 17, then making his Crankworx debut in 2010, topping the podium as a Junior for the first time the following year. He says his Crankworx career highlights both came in 2016, when he took the win in the Fox Air DH, and also raced head-to-head with his brother Tom in the bronze medal match up of the CLIF Bar Dual Speed & Style.
