Points of Interest

  • Connor was elected twice by his high school classmates to represent them in the annual Boy Band Assembly at Green Valley High School. In four minutes, he and four others had to perform any sort of dance they wanted, which would be judged by the teachers. Connor participated both in his junior and senior year and won not just once, but twice.

Personal

A flyer advertising the local BMX track captured the attention of Connor's mother, Lisa, back in 1999 when she stopped in at the bike shop near their home in Las Vegas. She must have thought that BMX would at least interest her 7-year-old son if not provide a reasonably safe, enclosed area where he could spend some energy for a while. Turns out she was spot on in her hunch and Connor has evolved into a world-class racer. If it was his mother that launched the notion of BMX racing, it has been his father, Mike, who has managed the dream by tirelessly shuttling Connor to practice and races, by filming races that he and Connor can review later, and by sacrificing a lot just so his son could race BMX.
 
Connor enjoyed banner years in 2009-10, claiming three podium finishes at World Cup races while still in high school, where he lived a double life as a normal American teenager. His friends don't race so when he's not training, riding or racing, he likes to spend time with them by going snowboarding in nearby southern Utah or going to the movies.Connor went on to graduate high school in 2010 and enjoy a string of three consecutive world cup podium finishes and a national championship through 2012. He added back-to-back world championships in the time trial in 2012 and 2013, capturing those titles in Birmingham, United Kingdom and Auckland, New Zealand.
 
Occasionally Connor will throw some friendly jabs at Olympic bronze medalist, Donny Robinson, but rejects the suggestion that there's any mean-spirited rivalry between the two. Despite the remarks (from both sides), Donny and Connor have dance performing in common and both have proven talents in that area.

Connor has been studying at UNLV since 2012. He is scuba certified and was voted Most Likely to Travel the Globe in high school, where he was also named Homecoming King. Connor is also involved in the Make-a-Wish Foundation.
