John is a first generation Vietnamese Canadian who grew up in Yukon, Canada. His passion for motorcycling was ignited on trips to Saigon "the city of millions of motorcycles" where he got in touch with his roots, learning more about his culture.
"There's nothing like cruising the streets of Saigon, weaving through traffic like schools of fish traversing the ocean waters"
Exploring and learning about new places and people led him to his current work providing IT services for the Inuit people in Canada's high arctic - Nunavut. Supporting indigenous people in their native lands has always proven to be meaningful in his life and he hopes the Mongolia rally will reveal the same.
