My name is Karsten Madsen and I’m a 30 year-old Professional Endurance Athlete. My background actually began in road triathlon & XC mountain bike racing before I progressed into doing off road triathlon. Since going professional in 2014, I've become a 5x Xterra Major title winner, 3x National Champion and placed 2nd overall in the 2019 Xterra Pam AM Tours. In 2018 after two failed attempts at Xterra World Championships in Maui, I had a breakthrough performance and placed 7th. I now have my sights set on diversifying and becoming both a winter sport athlete along with all the summer sport I'm already competing in. When I'm not racing or training, I spend time coaching athletes to their goals in endurance sport. I also volunteer time getting kids involved with sport along with fighting Climate change with Protect Our Winters Canada . After all that, you can find me relaxing enjoying a good mountain view with a coffee.
